We happened to come across great music and a bunch of people jumping and thought that's where we want to be. The crowd was awesome, the drinks cheap, and the music engaging. The downside was that it was the hottest place I've ever been in. It was hotter and more humid inside than it was outside. Only 4 ceiling fans... More

You can't go wrong with a Kelly's Bar...even in Nicaragua. The beer was very cold, the sandwich was excellent, the service was fun and entertaining. Get down the back street for this gem.

Went to meet an employee for a meeting but the employee was not allowed in due to his facial hair and the fact that he was Nicaraguan. I can not believe that in this day and age such discrimination can take place. I would never attempt to go there again.

He visited with a foreign friend and was denied entrance without reason. His friend, being a good client of the bar talked to someone who let my husband enter but warned him that the next... More

good mix of music, cheap drinks, good atmosphere for dancing and the layout of the bar is nice so if you don't want to be sitting "on the dance floor", you can move to the other side to chat and hangout. fun times and in a great location!
