A Refreshing Bar on Wheels for Cocktail Lovers
Since its opening on April 14, 2022, La Carreta has become a highly visited destination for locals and tourists seeking a refreshing drink experience. What started as a humble venture with ice coolers and beers has now blossomed into a bar on wheels offering personalized cocktails, an expanded menu, and even bartending services. Let’s explore the journey of La Carreta, its popular offerings, and the vision of its owners, Tony and Ricardo.
La Carreta’s journey started with a simple idea: to create a space where people could unwind, enjoy a cold drink, and revel in the company of friends. Armed with ice coolers and a selection of beers, Tony and Ricardo began hosting people, providing a relaxed and inviting atmosphere that quickly garnered attention. They realized there was a significant demand for unique and personalized cocktails, leading them to venture further into the world of mixology.
As La Carreta grew in popularity, Tony and Ricardo recognized the need to expand their offerings. They introduced a variety of cocktails, based on their personal tastes. In addition to the ever-growing cocktail menu, they ensured that traditional favorites like Numu, Imperial, Pilsen, and Estrella beers were always available.
Furthermore, they catered to a wider range of preferences by offering gluten-free and alcohol-free beer options.
To complement their cocktail selection, La Carreta also began serving an array of juices and smoothies, providing refreshing alternatives for those seeking a non-alcoholic experience.
Entertainment and Events:
La Carreta’s commitment to creating memorable experiences goes beyond its drink offerings. They have expanded their presence with another location at Playa Grande, where they host live music events every Wednesday at 6:30 pm and every two Fridays at 7:00 pm in Huacas.
La Carreta boasts an impressive range of popular drinks that have captivated the taste buds of both locals and tourists. Among the favorites are the Dragon Fruit Margarita, a blend of tropical flavors, and the Gin and Tonic with Red Berries, a refreshing twist on a classic. Moscow Mules, known for their zesty and invigorating qualities, have also gained popularity among customers seeking a unique and memorable drinking experience.
With their unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction and growing demand for their offerings, Tony and Ricardo are considering expanding La Carreta, potentially through franchising. This expansion would enable them to bring their passion for craft cocktails to new locations, captivating even more individuals with their personalized approach to mixology.
La Carreta’s journey from a small beer-hosting endeavor to a thriving cocktail “bar on wheels” is a testament to the vision and dedication of its owners. Through personalized cocktails, an expanded menu, and a commitment to creating unforgettable experiences, Tony and Ricardo have crafted an oasis for cocktail enthusiasts. Whether you are a local or touring through Costa Rica, La Carreta invites you to indulge in their creations, soak up the vibrant atmosphere, and raise a glass to the Pura Vida.
