Our Story

Welcome To Bahia

In Spanish, the word Bahia means bay; an inlet of the sea or other body of water usually smaller than a gulf.

At Bahia, we are here to ensure you have more than a meal, we promise an adventure in food and a dining experience you won’t soon forget.

Our menu is full of traditional plates infused with the soul of Spain.

From the pre-meal cocktail to the dessert for two and all the unique courses in-between, our passion for providing exceptional hospitality is unmatched.

With authentic Spanish-inspired dishes, finely crafted and curated drinks, and an environment you won’t want to leave, Bahia has everything for a memorable night out—all in one space. 

Culture through cuisine

What are Tapas?

Tapas are not a type of dish, it’s something that goes beyond what you order—tapas are an adventure in food. Be it on a date night with a loved one or in a large group, tapas are plates meant to be shared with good wine and even better company. We are proud to provide our tapas the way they were meant to be—as a way to connect while enjoying new foods together.

Order to Share

Tapas are an experience best enjoyed with healthy appetites and even better company. The food is shared while the experience is savored.

Mix & Match

From our potato bravas with truffle aioli, our delicious seared scallops, to our decadent desserts and fine wine — our menu will ensure no two visits are ever the same.

Add Plates

The meal doesn’t end until you say it does. Keep the wine flowing, the conversations going, and the tastebuds dancing until your evening has become one to remember.
