Entertaining night spent listening to and singing along to music requested by patrons. Good variety, entertainer tried to accommodate various genres of music. One night is probably enough because requests get repetitive.

I had an incredibly rude experience here and I suggest if you’re reading this you should heavily consider my story before spending your money at this establishment. My friends and I walked in (4 African American women) per a recommendation of a fellow vacationer. We...had planned on purchasing drinks and enjoying the musician. A song was playing when we walked in so we began to sing and dance along with the other patrons. Before we even had the chance to order, I saw the bar tenders whispering until one of them (a woman with black hair) yelled at us “You can’t be here if you don’t buy a drink” Excuse me? We just arrived and haven’t even seen a menu, how do we even know what to order? She was so rude it made me uncomfortable and I wanted to leave immediately but stayed because my friends were enjoying the music. A few minutes later a male bartender approached us and asked if we were ready to order, I explained how rude the woman was and gave him our order. But after he left , a security guard aggressively approached us yelling “DID YOU BUY A DRINK” and began arguing with us in front of everyone. It was so embarrassing and uncomfortable to the point that we felt we were not welcome and left before we could even enjoy the drinks or the rest of the music. The staff could have easily been more welcoming and given us time to think about our order. I suggest you take your money ANYWHERE else because there’s no need to invite a bad night into your life on vacation.More

Don’t go, if they think you have been drinking they add to your bill!! No joke. Sad because the pianist is great but it like a scam for tourist. I drink , my husband doesn’t. They added an extra $30 on the bill!!! Really??? When...questioned the bartender took it off but we had to argue the point. He said I had 7 wines in 2 hours???? Are you kidding me, just check your bill. Sad after COVID you fine here, spend money to get tested to go and leave and the locals instead of being happy are looking to take advantage.. just sad :(More

Got there early for the piano player, who was awesome . We were there for 21/2 hours. My husband doesn’t drink mind you. But I do. Got the bill we were overcharged by $30!!! 2 extra wines and 2 martinis. If they think your too...buzzed to realize it, they will do it. Great nite but they ruined it. He went back and changed and said it was wrong but how many times they do that and get away with it. I do not want to be so hyper aware on vacation!! It was our last night and we were made to be tourist suckers. If you, check your bill!!! They assume after an hour you are too drunk or trusting to check....first time I. Aruba and sad to see thatMore

We had a great time here. Music was fun and liked the outdoor seating. Booths can hold 4-6 people so fun for a group or couples. Obviously the crowd there helps make the evening but Tim B, the piano player, was top notch and very...engaging. World record holder for piano. Service was a little slow but got better later in the evening when our waitress came on staff. 3 stars is only because we ordered several drinks during the posted happy hour (Friday 5-8p) but they didn’t give us any at the 1/2 price rate!!. The sign says this but the bartender told us it’s out of date.More

My wife and I dropped in during our first night in town -- first night ever in Aruba, for that matter -- and darn it if they didn't have one hell of a piano player tickling the ivories. Jen Porter is from Chicago, and she...was masterful. She has a 700 song repertoire and does all requests. The way she interacted with the crowd, never missed a note, and kept the energy up the entire time, we could tell right away she was a real pro. This is no ordinary level of talent. They fly her and her colleagues in from afar to play for a month or more, so the entertainment is top-notch. By the end of the night, you'll feel like you're a regular.More
