Our Roots

Born out of a friendship, a road trip, and a promise in 2016, the concepts of Al Campo (to the countryside)...and someday Hotel Bohemio were hatched whilst driving from the west coast to Marfa, TX. As expected, the stellar visit was filled with wonder, tranquility, interesting conversations, lots of amazing art and a desire to spend time in this magical place.

Al Campo is a Wine Garden & Rustic Bistro located in the heart of Marfa, TX. Opened in June 2017, it quickly became a popular place among West Texas locals and visitors for dinner, a glass of wine, and good conversation.  

Soon after opening, Al Campo transformed into a family affair with parents, siblings, cousins, and friends all pitching in to contribute to the unique and authentic atmosphere. The chef, of Chilean descent, has brought a cuisine rich in culture and tradition, but married to the West Texas locale.

In 2018, a renovated trailer and an adobe ruin were added to Al Campo to create La Playa—a beach themed space featuring a a colorful and fresh menu for lunch. La Playa is open seasonally, for special events & festival weekends, and for private rental.    

 The newest addition to our family is the first and most popular shop of it's kind in West Texas. Slowpoke is a funky stick 'n' poke tattoo shop located in the rear of the property and open by appointment only.
