This place is not artisanal in any way so I don't get the name. It's a wannabe hipster place but the menu does not match the prices. They are charging way more by Nicaraguan standards than they are offering. I don't recommend it.

We stopped in here in the afternoon for a coffee but judged it to be more of a drinks place so came back later on. We had a beer and a cocktail (which were quite pricey by Nica standards) but were brought the bill promptly and told that the bar was closing. It was 5pm. Before ordering your drinks check... More

This is really nice place to chill with your friends, family or by yourself. While you listen the latin music the enviroment and the place invites to enjoy your stay there. The food is good and also the attention.

Dance floor is primarily couples- not really a place to go to dance it out with your friends. We went on a busy night so it was tough to get a drink at the bar, and the one I got was average (go elsewhere for a mojito).

we went out, we partied and it was good. The music was hit or miss but understandable for Nicaragua. Gotta love latin dancing.

We really needed a place like this after a horrible experience we had at a local coffee shop, so we started with some Margaritas then a few beers and mixed fajitas. We didn´t wait that much, the guy was very profesional, educated and attentive, the food was amazing. I highly recommend it.

You walk through the streets at nights to get to this place. The streets are almost empty and deserted after about 8pm on any night. You are bit scared and anxious. You are thinking too much. You are reevaluating if going to any bars at this time is a good idea. You are thinking if you wanna walk back the... More

In the morning/afternoon this place is a cafe. I liked the Chele breakfast a lot. Coffee is good and the lunch is decent. At night it converts into a great bar, good music, nice atmosphere and Friday Salsa night.. The best bar in Matagalpa for me.

We went on a Saturday night... Salsa night! The music was thunderous but everyone was dancing and having a great time, nice vibe. Nice cold beers but we couldn't taste any vodka or rum in our mixed drinks. Very mean generous measures!
