It's not for everyone. During weekends it's a nightclub so the interior is fairly shabby. This is not an especially cozy place. During weekends it gets insanely crowded and it gets hot and humid. You'll probably get beer spilled on you. The dance floor is as tiny as the bar itself, tiny and located in front of the bar and the exit unfortunately. Not for claustrophobic's.
Long story short, it's great.
During daytime it's mostly populated with friendly locals and is popular with expats.
In the first or second weekend of June the bar invites people to it's legendary "Lobster summer" party. Free lobster (and beer if I recall correctly) while supplies last. It's a smashing party.
