Barcelona Tapas restaurateur William Carballo celebrated the opening if his new Patio Tapas Bar & Lounge with a series of special events that took place this past week. The new space is located on the lower level of his acclaimed Barcelona Tapas restaurant. A favorite among visitors and locals, the downtown Puerto Vallarta eatery first opened its doors to the public on New Year’s Eve, 2000, becoming a Puerto Vallarta must from the beginning due to its unique menu featuring cold and hot tapas, along with a variety of paellas and other traditional Spanish dishes. Barcelona Tapas is located at Matamoros & 31 de Octubre Sts.
