Okay for a drink if you're not looking for a memorable experience

We have been patrons of Kelly's Bar since 2010 and always drop in for a drink or two (or three) each time we stay in Granada. We enjoy having shots and cocktails seated at one of the two street side tables, great for watching people. We have frequented the Bar less in our recent visits because... read more

I really don't know what to say about this place but Look Out......Service was incredible in a sense that there wasn't any. I never really felt safe in the place even though they had bouncers but I had a feeling that if something happened I wasn't going to win. Enter at your own risk.

We had 1 hour before we had to catch our taxi, other restaurants were closed, but this one was open for lunch. Being open was about the only good thing they offered. The menu looks professional and the options looked like comfort food I had been missing after several weeks in Nica. We settled on the grilled cheese (comes with... More

When first walking in the place was empty. The bartender didn't even look up from his phone. When he finally bothered to ask us what we wanted he seemed annoyed he had to do his job. We ate fajitas which were pretty good. But when the bill came it wrong and it wasn't an honest mistake because he kept changing... More

There is no shortage of eating and drinking establishments in Nicaragua. This is definitely a good place to stop, have a Tona (the national beer) and people watch.

Kelly's is one of the only great dance places in the centre. Me and my friends danced here a lot. From salsa, bachata to pop songs. A happy place to make a nice party.
