The desire to build Bar Ferdinand came about as a part of the natural evolution of Owen Kamihira’s fifteen year career as a restaurant designer and consultant. Owen envisioned a local gathering place for neighbors to go for great tapas, wine, and conversation – an anchor establishment in the Northern Liberties community he has lived in for the past 28 years. His love for Spanish culture, combined with the right opportunity and timing, turned Bar Ferdinand from concept to reality.

There are several stories regarding the origin of tapas, which are a part of the foklore of Spain. In one version, King Alfonso X “the Wise One” ordered all of the bars and inns in Spain to serve wine along with a little something to eat, so that the wine would not got straight to the customers’ heads.
