Spanish Restaurant & Tapas Bar – Penn Quarter

Barcelona’s Energy & Cuisine in a Lively Tapas Bar in Penn Quarter

Boqueria Penn Quarter

Located In the heart of Washington D.C.’s vibrant Penn Quarter neighborhood, Boqueria is a lively Barcelona-style tapas bar.

Serving classic Spanish tapas and wine – all within a short walk from CityCenterDC, Capital One Arena, Apple’s Carnegie Library flagship store, and the museums along the National Mall – Boqueria brings a bit of Barcelona vibrancy to the dynamic Penn Quarter area of DC.

At our newest location, guests are greeted at the central light-washed island bar with a menu of pintxos and a variety of cocktails, wine and spirits to wash them down. For lunch and dinner, succulent slow-roasted rotisserie chicken and classic tapas are prepared on the searing hot plancha at the open kitchen counter; while leisurely brunch “feasts” feature unlimited, free-flowing mimosas and sangría.

In The Press

“The 164-seat stunner features a modern-looking dining room straight out of Barcelona, complete with swaying palms, abstract artwork, and lots of Spanish reds served at its thick marbled bar.”
~ Eater DC

“Grab a group and head out for Spanish tapas, wine and cocktails at the newest location of Boqueria. The Penn Quarter address features signature rotisserie chicken, ribs and pork shank along with a chef’s counter for elevated dining.”
~ DC Refined

“This is one of our favorite Spanish restaurants in D.C. and its seamless integration into a new neighborhood only makes it feel more like a District staple. The quality of ingredients, the integrity of place, and hospitable kindness are a reason this spot has doubled—and why loyal patrons and new customers alike will line up for a snack, a drink, and a paella the size of your entire table.”
~ BWB

While not traditionally Spanish, fresh corn is a summer staple in the states, not to mention one of our favorite ingredients to add a Spanish twist to! That's why our mouths begin watering merely at the mention of our newest dish: Maíz Rustido ~ featuring charred fresh summer corn, scallions, Manchego cheese, Calabrian chili, and mint.

What are your favorite local ingredients to play with?!
