I found the waiting staff to be very unhelpful when we arrived, stopping us from sitting where we liked constantly. The actual interior of the bar isn't as great as the tripadvisor reviews suggest - for pete's sake, there's a TV showing sports inside which...More

At the entrance of Petra, this cozy bar is built in a real cave. It is not fake at all! As Petra, stones are surrounding you here. You can seat in your own little cave enjoying your privacy and quiet after the magic view of...More

Bobbas and Tobbas, huh? Incredibly entertaining hosts - very welcoming and chilled out atmosphere. The duo were incredible with the female singer perfectly impersonating Amy Winehouse's voice. Fantastic evening.

Smoking is allowed inside. There are tables outside though and you can’t really notice the smoking. I would say 90% are tourists and most of them don’t smoke
