This is one of the most popular nighspots around. If you want great music and some local flair, go here. Sunday nights are especially cool with a lot of young, beautiful people, locals and tourists, dancing it up. Also a great place to go on a hot afternoon and drink a beer and catch up on sports.

Great place to watch American sports while traveling to a place that recognizes football as soccer! Beer prices and service was great. Never had to ask for a drink. What more can you ask for.

We just arrived to Granada and were looking for a great relaxation with food place, Kelly's was recommended to us by the Hotel were we stayed, and it was for sure the best option possible.. There are different atmospheres in the same place, great music, great food, and great atmosphere..

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

If you're looking for the spot to go dancing and shaking it all night this is the spot in Granada. It is extremely hot in there so make sure you drink water and take breaks regularly as ventilation is rather poor. The house DJ was probably the best we experienced in Nicaragua. I'm not much of a dancer, but if... 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.

My Nicaraguan husband (I am North American) has visited Kelly Bar twice and both times denied entrance. The first time was about a month ago. 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
