Saturdays we have live acoustic singers and guitarists in a variety of styles (reggae, blues, rock) and on Sundays we show the best of international cinema in the original language with Spanish subtitles. We also have a lending library with of wide selection of titles and book exchanges for those in search of a little travel reading. Come check us out and see for yourself.

This place has a really nice atmosphere. The directed conversations on tuesdays are amazing, with great topics and very intereating points of view. A very good place to meet new people, listen to good music and enjoy a relaxing environment.

Sorry. This was a very disappointing experience. The waitress was sweet but the drinks were not. Big disappointment with the Margarita. Just for kids who don't know their drinks.

It's not a restaurant but nice hangout for a snack or cool drink. Enjoy all the people who pass by and grab some tortilla chips with the excellent guacamole.

One of my best places to go in Medellín is Tinto Tintero, there are nice activities every week such as Free English Class on Tuesday and Language Exchange on Wednesday. Foreing and local people meet there in order to improve both English and Spanish language skills, share a drink and take a delicious meal.
