Bar Moca is a neighborhood lounge that occasionally hosts events like erotic poetry open mic nights. So if you’re looking for a spot to listen to strangers express themselves through suggestive words that occasionally rhyme, this is where you should be. It’s a dark, loungey space with some comfortable banquettes along the walls, and it’s a good spot for some low-key drinks with a couple of people you need to catch up with.
