About Porta Chester
OPEN EVERY NIGHT FROM 5pm ~ LAST FOOD ORDERS 10.30pm ~
Ben & Joe opened the original Porta Tapas Bar here at 140 Northgate Street, Chester in 2012, situated under Chester’s historic City Walls and alongside their well-established, Michelin ‘Bib-Gourmand’ awarded restaurant, Joseph Benjamin.
The tapas bar originally evolved with an ulterior motive – to provide somewhere for the guys themselves to wind-down after they’d given their blood, sweat and tears in the restaurant. The buzzing atmosphere and relaxed, no-bookings policy certainly helped, but their long-standing love of all things Iberian as well as some experienced team members with Spanish origins led inevitably to a more serious approach.
