Me and a friend went there to get a drink before dinner because it had been recommended. Very cool place with unique atmosphere. The place is very darkly lit (almost entirely by candles). There’s games to play if you want, or chat it up with...More

The jazz pulled us in but the atmosphere kept us around. We were drawn to the back room that had a sign reading "2 shot minimum" Ended up staying at the bar for 2+ hours listening to live music and talking with the owner. Incredible...More

I visited last night for dinner. What a great place! It is TINY, but there is also seating upstairs. The menu is straight forward and if you want to make a request for deletion of any items, they are happy to oblige. I had the...More

This was a fun bar. There are 3 separate rooms; 4 if you count the bookstore that is attached! In the front is the bar where they feature live music, further back is the cocktail bar. And if you duck and go through the weird...More

The environment is unusual but apart from that, it is a cliché situation of foreign investment in a developing country...: Specific type costumers (mostly tourists). Despite the seemingly relaxed environment, some staff was intense, pushy and irritating bringing a strange, and certainly not local, vibe...More

When you feel like an adventurous bar time this is the place to be! Kinda dark, dingy, well used with a playlist of music that cannot be topped! The secret room for serious mezcal drinkers is hidden behind an old refrigerator door. People from all...More
