Meet The Bar

Fat Buddha has the best staff. Our combo of great food and music is like a round house kick to your face. Here are just a couple people you will bump into at our fine establishment:

Los - A huge Barcelona fan that slings drinks just like the soccer star, Messi, kicking balls into the back of the net. He loves life and will frequently issue yellow and red cards if you're being a dick at the bar. YUP!

Pedro - Cooking up in the kitchen with a fervor and wants you to vote for him.

DJ Mike Loe - A highly respected DJ and producer who has worked with many of Hip Hop's legendary artists, calls everyone "son" or "junior", and is always willing to remind you that "you don't know nothin' bout this."
