Behind the bar, guests can enjoy a selection of tapas-size beer, Spanish wines and straightforward cocktails. HOURS: Mon. – Thurs. 5pm – 10pm; Fri. – Sat. 5pm – 11pm; Sun. 4pm – 10pm. STATS: One of KSM’s anchor restaurants, Bar Mercado is located right on Krog Street adjacent to Superica.
“The name, ‘Bar Mercado’ is derived from a visit to Madrid’s Mercado de San Miguel years ago. The literal translation means ‘market bar,’ both appropriate for its location in Krog Street Market and also reflective of the approachable menu we plan to deliver – the greatest hits of Spanish cuisine that can be enjoyed following an afternoon stroll on the Beltline or during a lively Saturday night out with friends.” – Owner Fred Castellucci
