A private room often used in Lebanese and Levantine Arabic dialect to refer to a part or division of a building enclosed by walls, floor, and ceiling.
As its name suggests, Vera Cocina & بار is a celebration of two cultures that are as close to each other in hospitality and warmth as they are far in location.
Just like in any Lebanese or Mexican home, our family of servers and our chef Jorge Baron invite you into our “Uda” for a more intimate and elegant setting where we will be dedicated to providing you with a memorable dining experience that is tailored to your specific needs and preferences.
Whether you are planning a business meeting, a family gathering, or a larger get together with close friends, we are committed to making you and your party experience the feeling of being invited into the private dining room of a Lebanese or Mexican family.
Capacity: 14 seated, 30 standing
Accessibility: Guests will enjoy a separate private entrance and a dedicated restroom
A central hall or courtyard in a modern building, with rooms or galleries opening off it, often glass-covered.
At the heart of our home lies a warm atrium that is covered by a large skylight, which allows natural light to filter into our space. The ground is covered in gravel, which gives the courtyard a natural feel. Plants are placed all around, adding greenery and a pop of color. Finally, a hanging wicker chandelier, handmade in Mexico, adds a touch of artisanal craftsmanship and authenticity to the room.
The room contains two large seating booths on each end, with café trottoir-style seating in between.
The combination of these natural materials and sense of openness and tranquility makes the atrium a one-of-a-kind venue for you and your party to unwind and relax after a long day.
Capacity: 30 seated, 40 standing
Mexican Craftsmanship: Every chandelier in the atrium was handmade under the guidance of our design partners in Mexico City
