Very good music and to be honest, I was sitting back and really enjoying it. Owner is a great guitar player and good musician. However it's the total package that counts. I would not come back here, because the owner was drunk and treated me and my friend very unrespectful. I was very embarrased and left right away. Also: 50... More

It was rock, not blues playing. And jam night is actually covers night. And it's really expensive, people were cool though but it's under a hotel and they gotta stop playing at like 11

I am unable to comment on the food as we had eaten before arriving to listen to the music on offer that night and to have drinks (which were expensive). We enjoyed most of the jam-type session with various instruments played but did not enjoy the performance by the rude and insulting manager who displayed bad manners, and at times,... More

Funny little bar underneath a hotel. It's very hard to find also considering the hotel has changed its name. The place is very damp and that smell hit is as soon as we entered the building and stayed with us for our whole visit. Most unpleasant. The band was very good. The lead guitarist maybe a little brash playing ridiculous... More

I am biased, as I live in Viet Nam and do know the owners and play music during the breaks when I visit. I always brought my travelling visitors here if they were up for the late hours. Live band with Reyman Robles as band leader who sings and plays guitar; a drummer, a base player and a second guitar... More

I've been in escape bar so many times. I'm a regular guess. The band is okay and doing their great job. When the owner come in (Curtis King) we paid the bill and came back home as usually. The last thing I saw was Curtis threw his guitar to the dummer of the band. But It's okay, "It's my bar"-the... More

The owner is rude and confrontational. We were a group of eight out for the evening and when the music started the performers speaker was cracking destroying his work. When one of us suggested he replace the speaker, there were several on stage, the owner jumped up on stage and with mike in hand verbally attacked us. Bowing in front... More
