Papa doble was almost alcohol free, the staff was stiff, cigars smokers area on the terrace confined, but no clear notice displayed. Overall poor experience.

Outdoor portion of this bar was usually deserted during the afternoons. Inside was packed in the evenings. Trifle expensive. Quality choice for some drinks out.

Went there on a Friday night with a bunch of girls to celebrate a friend's bachelorette party and had a great time! The music and drinks were great and I recommend the mojito shots!

Felt very comfortable . Blankets provided for those outside . Excellent service and absolutely delicious white sangria which was only 9 euro for a litre. Would definitely visit again.
