Barlovento opened in Casco Viejo last year and they’ve hosted several great events during their first year being open (I won the costume contest dressed as a Diablo Rojo during their Halloween party).  They have an open air rooftop terrace with trendy decor overlooking Casco’s historic streets – it’s definitely one of my favorite places to enjoy a drink.

I went to their one year anniversary celebration on Thursday and they threw a great party!  The chic open air rooftop set the perfect ambience to celebrate the occasion. We arrived at 9:30 pm so we were able to take advantage of the open bar of Absolut Vodka until 11 pm.  Once the open bar ended my friends and I were in the mood to keep partying so we got a bottle of Absolut to split between the five of us.  The music was great – they had DJs Sara Castro and Edward Allen playing electro mixes.  Then at midnight they launched fireworks off the rooftop and had a spectacular show.

Thank you Barlovento for all the good times this year and I hope you all have a successful year two!

Here’s an Instagram video I captured during the fireworks:

Barlovento is located on Ave Central and Calle 10 in Casco Viejo.  Visit their Facebook page for information on their latest events.
