bar centro menu

bar centro is a delightful blend of craft cocktails, live music, and good vibrations.

Our jewel box of a bar will delight you with its brass colored crown mouldings and ceiling, dark blue stuccoed walls, hardwood floors stained to a dark hue, subdued lighting, and our permanent resident: a Bechstein Grand Piano. The acoustics are great for live musical performances. A corner booth provides a cozy setting for up to six. The u-shaped, marble topped bar is a wonderful spot to sit and mingle with others. More intimate seating is provided with both low and high top tables.

The space is available for private events. Learn more here.
