This place use to be my spot but I recently have had bad experiences there (bad experience there on New Years..just a mess). I had stopped going for a while but recently decided to give it another shot. I went and was again disappointed. I have never experienced a bartender DEMAND that you give him a tip. I have always...

Came here for happy hour after work. Good drinks and good atmosphere. It's a pretty common location for happy hours. its not fantastic but it probably comes cheap. Anyways, the drinks were affordable, so I can't complain.

This place has character and friendly, helpful atagg. Good drinks...you can't go wrong with the margaritas and mojitos. It has a lot going on all week. We look forward to the free dance lessons most days, including salsa, zook, kilimbo, bachata, etc.

Purchased a Groupon and went here for dinner. Great food, very authentic flavors! A bit on the pricey side, but it is near Dupont Circle so that is expected...ceviche was my least favorite of what we ordered, but the skirt steak and the garlic fries were amazing! Keep in mind that it turns into a dance club at 10pm so... More

On Saturday nights you can enjoy a good reasonably priced meal then have a free Latin dance class and then dance the night away to Latin music downstairs. Great fun friendly accommodating service in pleasant surroundings
