La Parada Kickstarts Your Weekend With Sunset Sounds
DJ Tanner, DJ Cosher, ALT EGO and Acoustic Element, plus happy hour and tapas
La Parada on Bree Street is about live music, drinks specials and good vibes – and of course tapas.
A HOST OF HEADLINERS
What could be better than starting your weekend with happy hour (5-7PM) and live music? Catch one of the resident DJs, Acoustic Element, DJ Cosher, DJ Tanner and ALT EGO, for a diverse variety of music styles from violin-guitar duo to house and hip hop, or a fusion of acoustic instruments, electric synths and house beats.
RIGHT IN THE HEART OF BREE STREET
Entrance is free, so bring along all your friends to join in the merriment. On top of the 2-for-1 wine and beer happy hour special, there are also often gin activations, so keep an eye open for the pop-up bars. Plus, for those sweltering summer days, you can chill on a leather couch right on Bree Street's sidewalk, cooling off beneath the fine mist sprayers.
SEND YOUR TASTEBUDS TO HEAVEN
La Parada serves affordable Spanish-style tapas, including prawn croquetas, tuna tacos, cauliflower popcorn, and tomato cacciotta. If that’s not going to cut it, there are also burgers (try the succulent wagyu beef burger with sharp cheddar, red pepper chutney, and patatas bravas), seared tuna, chicken espetada, and more. A highlight from the dessert menu fluffy-on-the-inside and crispy-on-the-outside churros. There's something for the kids, too: the event is family-friendly.
HOORAY FOR A NEVERENDING WEEKEND
La Parada is an ideal spot for after-work drinks with friends or colleagues, given its central location, large drinks menu, and weekly events. There's a selection of champagne, prosecco, red and white wines, beers and ciders, and mixers to suit anyone's fancy. You can also bring out your inner boujee and order from the cocktail menu. There are also non-alcoholic options, including non-alcoholic wines made by Van Loveren. Bree Street is always buzzing, so you know it'll be a good time.
And if you want to extend the fun, start one day earlier at Finery Thursdays.
