Boston Phoenix 7/30/10Fun, if not altogether authentic. The garlic potatoes, fried shrimp, chicken croquettes, and bits of stew, though, are very evocative. Nice atmosphere.

BarLola Tapas Lounge restaurant opened in September 2005, and lies at the heart of the lively Back Bay on the corner of Dartmouth and Commonwealth. BarLola has become a notable cocktail bar/lounge/restaurant, serving signature drinks to young, hip Bostonians nightly. Spain comes to Boston, where one can simultaneously drink, enjoy Spanish music, mingle, and eat ones way round a wonderful gastronomic spectrum. BarLola Tapas Lounge is an elegant and romantic place for that perfect date or simply a girl’s night out. A great fun, relaxed environment that leaves enough room for an anxious anticipatory buzz of what might be uncovered here.
Eats & Drinks
If creativity is your passion, you should try BarLola’s famous signature martini, The Lolita. The Lolita is a delicious concoction of Stoli Perik, Gran Torres with mango juice. The best part of this drink is the edible orchid flower, which symbolizes love, luxury and beauty. Fun Fact! This was a form of “love potion” during the middle ages! For the food side, try BarLola’s Grilled sea scallops & black grape skewers (Pinchos de Vieras y Uvas).
The cozy umbrellas and low key lighting coming from the lampposts give a romantic aura, while the flamenco music keeps you on your toes. The magnificent, luxurious setting of BarLola Tapas Lounge evokes the mystery and romance of Barcelona, bedazzling its guests with classic European charm and sophistication. BarLola’s friendly and attentive staff is there to serve up whatever’s your pleasure on this special night. A place where you can sit in comfy chairs, relax and sip sangrias all night long.
