Visited J's bar every night for a drink or 2 with two great hosts Ian and Rich, thank you both for being so friendly and making our nights out fun . Looking forward to seeing you both through the year on our next visit to Gran Canaria.

Cheap drinks and lovely cocktails combined with Richard's friendly style as the owner make this small bar a must see and it certainly seems popular with locals and visitors alike.

Great bar - run by 2 lovely guys Ian & Richard - always a nice friendly smile for you and great drinks selection at great prices! It's the former Jackies Bar and everyone is welcome!
