From the first moment I walked into this little gem alone, I felt comfortable. It could have been the pretty flowers in the trees, or the cozy deck, or maybe it was because I was greeted with a warm smile. (I am a single woman who had just recently decided to spend a few months living in Playa and three days in I was just wandering)I learned that the smile was that of one of the owners as she was leaving for the night. I was greeted and served quickly by the most awesome, sweet bartender Jesse. I settled in and savored their portabello mushroom and Gorgonzola appetizer while I sipped a lovely glass of Merlot on that deck. From there, the rest is history and it's my restaurant/bar home away from home! The food is simple and as I said yummy, made with fine ingredients and great for sharing! The atmosphere of Sala Rosa is welcoming and cozy as are all the staff and owners...and the music can get rocking too! A great place for small plates with a group, to spend an evening having a nice dinner for two or propped up at the bar where you are sure to meet all kinds of great people - Love it!!!

If you are looking for a place to go where you can have a great super that will turn into an awesome night, this is the place to go. It has become a second home to me. Whether it's just for a casual beer or a nice super, you can be sure to be received by very welcoming and entertaining hosts. On top of it all, they have such a great music selection, it's a relief from the 12's pop music. Definitely a must! At the very least, go take a look at the beautiful giant rose tree!!

How refreshing to get away for the hustle and bustle of 5th Avenue. No now calling you into their shop or asking if you want a taxis every 5 steps. Little Argentina is a very classy neighbourhood and Sala Rosa fits the bill. Tapas are fresh, well priced and quite filling. Staff bends over backwards to make you feel like a valued customer in a relaxing atmosphere. This certainly is an upcoming neighbourhood and I think once discovered tourists will prefer to walk these streets and make Sala Rosa a favourite spot to visit.
Located at 38th Avenue off 5th avenue.

We ariived to Playa a bit before midnight and most of bars were already closed. Walking in the direction of the 5th Avenue we noticed a small place with a big red rose above the entrance. It was Sala Rosa which turned out to be the only bar, serving drinks and food late at night.
We were welcomed by very friendly staff, especially great were Morgan and Bruno, who taught us to dink tequila:)
Overall, food there was tasty, cocktails - refreshing and delicious, prices - more than reasonable. Also they've got special drink offers every night as well as DJs playing nice tracks and occasional Live Music concerts.
All in all it's an amazing place to relax and have a few drinks. And we enjoyed spending several nights there.
