15,000 cover around 9:30pm even though the place was empty. Seems like a pretty touristy place. Rude/pushy bouncers. We left and went to Plaza de Trinidad which is where all the action was. Lots of music, fireworks off in the distance, and a random Ms. Barrio pageant.

This place is fantastic. Great live music and good vibes all around. Keep in mind that this place can get a bit pricey. There is a cover and the drinks are on the more expensive side but well-worth it.

The place is great, live band is awesome, but the place is too small and they let enter too many people. There is no space to dance. Not good for a place where they play Latin music.

If you wanna drink, drink are quite good. Not expensive place in comparison with others in the city (same 15000 COP mojitos in all the city). You just need to pay entrance (15000 each-6 euros). You don't need table if you want to dance. If you want a tabel (unuseul) you can go up to 23.00, otherwise everything it's occupied.... More

I was a little apprehensive of this place. Usually not my kind of go to place, but it really surprised me. Prices are fair in a very expensive city, the place was overcrowded but even so waiting staff do their best to deliver a good service. The musical group is really above the average.

Someone at the door will charge you $8 USD to enter. He will not tell you that the place is packed. Suddenly you will be surrounded by hundreds of very sweaty people in a very small place, with no AC, and you will have to pay 20 bucks for a not great rum, if you can make it to the... More

So much fun for all ages. Great drinks, great people, excellent live music! A little out of the way, but what a great night. I suggest getting there around 10.15. Band comes on at 10.45pm. We went on Thursday & Sat. We had lots of fun both nights, although Saturday was a bit too packed! I preferred Thursday!

Yes it is a tourist favourite but most of the tourists are Colombian. Drinks are not extortionately priced but you will have to drop a couple if you want a seat as the band never hits the stage much before midnight. There isn't much room to dance which for Europeans can only be an advantage but nobody cares how good... More

The place is magic, is always full of people of all around the world, the band starts at 11:30 pm. The Mojito de Maracuyá (Passion fruit) is delicious.

Now I'm a big fan of clubs and great music, but this place is getting a 2. Well the music is great, that's for sure. However there's no chance of dancing as the place is so crowded, you can barely move. Why? I really don't know. It's $20,000 just to get in the door. If you are lucky enough to... More
