I wouldn't like to pigeonhole this excellent bar. It was friendly and lively on the weekend nights we were there, with a good mixture of customers. The vibe was cool but not too cool, and the music was good. It is known for having a...More

This is a small bar with seating inside and out. We went on and tried a few of the beers and went on the locals recommendations. The Bar is rather dark but other than that staff are nice and beer is good.

In this cafe you have it all: nice music at the background, plenty of different beers and a pretty interior. When it's warm enough, it's a great place to have a refreshing drink on the terrace.
