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 they offer fewer selections...

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.

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.

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.

This is a great place to have a cerveza while listening to the street performers. It is fun to experience this simple pleasure.

We restaurant was pretty empty and I think they forgot about our order. We waited over an hour, repeatedly asking about our food. We had our one year old daughter with us, which made it a little more difficult. Once the food did come out it was quite good.
