Great music, average food, party!

We went there with a group of friends and it was an amazing Friday night out! The live music group was entertaining, the guests were partying with them, a truly Colombian experience! The food, however, was not amazing. So maybe the better option is to eat somewhere else and come around 11 p.m. to... read more

Went there with my colombian family. When we arrived we asked if they have a table for five and we mentioned that we want to eat too before having fun. They told us they'd have a table so we entered. But they offered us a table that would have been just big enough for 2 people and not five. A... More

If you are looking for a place to grab something to eat, have great cocktails and enjoy the rest of the evening dancing to local (live) music, don´t look any further. This multi-level restaurant serves traditional dishes that can perfectly be shared while you enjoy performances from your table overlooking the podium. The later it gets, the more people get...

If you can not find an authentic local place to experience the wonderful variety of Colombian and Latin music this can be worth a visit. They do cover most styles including salsa, cumbia, merengue, and vallento. Half live music and half taped. Prices are high even by US standards. This is a commercial operation. Food decent. Service courteous. Professional operation.... More

I visited for a business dinner with 40 others, so I do not know about prices. I can say the food was very good; my pork ribs were very tender. The event of the evening was a very energetic stage performance of traditional and popular Colombian music.

Wow! This place is amazing. Given there's a cover that's not cheap, it's totally worth it. Great music and dancing. Multiple floors give you some options for views of the stage and dance floor. Drinks weren't necessarily cheap either given the cover but I was there to have fun and dance. That said, the drinks weren't small like the dance... More
