After bringing a little slice of Spain to Bardon for almost four years, Pata Negra Spanish Tapas Bar is moving to a new location in Fortitude Valley.

Famous for its paellas and homemade sangrias, Pata Negra Spanish Tapas Bar opened in Bardon in 2018, and has since been recognised as home to the most authentic Spanish tapas in the city.

Dining at Pata Negra feels like being transported back into the side streets bars of Seville, Madrid or Barcelona, with their traditional tapas and wines and beers which are all imported from Spain.  

The restaurant is gearing up for its August 5-7 opening weekend in Brunswick St in Fortitude Valley, after closing its MacGregor Terrace location in July 2022.

The new location, around a 10-minute drive from the original, will still feature all their signature items, their huge, traditional family paella to the tapas, such as tortilla de patatas (potato omelette), croquetas,  and albondigas (Spanish meatballs).

“I have been to the Bardon restaurant. Fabulous food. Look forward to trying the Fortitude Valley one,” one of their customers wrote in their social media page.

They will continue to offer their famous Paella cooking class, a master class held every Wednesday night and guided by a Spanish chef. Here, students do not only get to learn how to cook authentic paella, but also a few of the tricks of the trade and its rich history.

More than the food and their paella master class, locals have come to enjoy their flamenco show every month and occasional wine tasting classes.
