“Rock the Roll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We caught one of the entertainers from this establishment helping a mate out at another with a coffee in one hand and sausage roll in the other.....not really rock and roll is it he said....
Well the bar is, we had a great time on a number of visits and were very impressed by the standard of the entertainment presented....not only by the proprietor gary on bass and the multi instrumentalist johnny, but by the constant stream of musicians that frequent the venue.
The music is good and varied, the banter is very good and makes for a very friendly ambience and atmosphere about the place,....a very relaxing venue that is well worth a visit by anybody looking for musical entertainment and a laugh on the island.
Music is usually 21:30- mid nite but the bar serves until 1am, the staff are very friendly but in my view its worth getting in early as it isn't the largest of venues and seating is limited, this doesn't detract from the ambience in any way and in the main it seems that many of the customers are returning acquaintances, but it is not a cliquish, in fact we found everyone was made very welcome and will certainly visit whenever we are visiting correllejo,....some very nice evenings ...thank guys.

“The only bar in Corralejo that is always full all year round.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

The bar is small and uniquely decorated but that just adds to the ambience.
Every night they have a singer/musician. Always unplugged (acoustic).
Bar prices for local beers are reasonable but other drinks are a little pricey.
The staff are fantastic.

“Go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Having been to this great place 3 years ago my wife and I travelled up from Caleta to spend the last 2 nights of our holiday in Corralejo JUST SO WE COULD COME HERE!
Absolutely the most chilled out and enjoyable evenings in the whole of the Canaries. Same owners for (I think) 20 years or so which is a clear indication of having a successful vibe.

Well done Gary and Mandy keep up the good work
