Cocktail Bar
BARCOA Agaveria is a basement bar that celebrates the spirits of Mexico. Serving imaginative craft cocktails and a vast list of agave spirits, BARCOA is often described as "vibey," "sexy," and "the time of my life" (says some dude from Mesa). Agave spirits such as tequila, mezcal, bacanora, raicilla, and sotol, are the stars here, available as flights, neat pours, or however you like.

Reservations are only available for the basement bar. Please reference the Basement Bar Menu. Above BARCOA, check out the Cantina, a casual back-alley mezcal and tequila bar that serves affordable classic cantina cocktails, and the cheery patio, which features Provecho taco truck. Pop out anytime during your visit and bring food down to the basement.

BARCOA can be tricky to find. We're located on the southeast corner of 1st Avenue & Roosevelt, in the historic red brick building. Don't worry, you're not lost. It's just poor directional signage that the City refuses to fix.

    Wife and I reserved a seat in the basement bar to follow our anniversary dinner at another restaurant. We were immediately seated and greeted. We browsed the menu and tried a few drinks (Elote Moda, Papel Picado and Poder De La Flor) while enjoying the music and vibe. Watching the bartender work was a treat because he’s actually making your drinks instead of just mixing them. Each drink we had was wonderful and well worth the price, in my opinion. They also have a lot of nice touches like artwork in the ice and really cozy seating. I’d definitely recommend coming here and I do believe we’ll return with friends.

    HUGE fan of Barcoa!!! The team there are some of the most hospitable in Phoenix. My wife and I live in LA now and I tell all of my friends and family visiting Phoenix to check out Barcoa. Provecho being there regularly is a game changer too. Their food is awesome!

    We enjoyed a tequila tasting at Barcoa and it was fantastic. Not only was it tailored to our preferences, but we learned more at this tequila tasting than any other we’ve been to before. We tried tequila out of clay and tried Sotol. It was a unique experience. We also thoroughly appreciated Barcoa’s loyalty to family owned tequila producers. We also tried some of the tequila craft cocktails. The bartenders have it down. They were great! The atmosphere is cozy but energetic. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Barcoa. We will be back and will recommend to others!

    Great food and drinks! Overall the staff was great! We had a minor issue with one unhappy employee but overall everyone else treated us great and his co worker apologized on his behalf so we appreciated the attentiveness on his behalf.
