Boveda - which literally means vault- is a Latin Speakeasy located in the West End neighborhood of Georgetown. Properly chaotic, casual, and affordable, Boveda is the clandestine destination for vibrant eclectic music, unique cocktails, and inspired modern Latin American dishes. Diners may enjoy various seating areas within the intimate space including raised booths, banquettes, communal tables, a lounge, a neighborhood bar, and a tavern-esque private area. This hidden gem reveals reclaimed wood ceilings and floors, Spanish pewter lanterns with filigree detailing, large antique mirrors, field stone walls, and vintage Cuban floor tiles. Private dining available as well.
