“Beautiful, but Not for everyone”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

On the positive, a wonderful renovation of an old building. Great attention to details. Three different dining areas; main one with great AC , beautiful bar, and several TV, good WiFi. The second area is outdoors with a beautiful water fountain...again great concern for details. The third area is upstairs and very nice. Bathrooms are large new lit and maybe the best in an restaurant . Just based on the above, I recommend a visit. Parking is a serious issue

The service was also excellent and well trained and many available to serve you.

The menu is limited...which in Nicaragua is not necessarily bad if there is a variety and well prepared..I have tried three items all well prepared, beautiful presentation but all needed to be "spiced-up".

The music is all tied into videos on TV , if you like the video selection you will like the music, except it is too loud for me. Plus all the surfaces are wood, tile and glass...so sound quality gets compromised. In the center is a stage for live music with very loud music..But, many of the in-crowd enjoys this venue...so many will attend here.

Major issue is the pricing..very high for the quality..domestic beers at twice the price of other bars and the imported beers were $4.50-$6.50. No bar or food specials

Overall, recommend a visit and owners are to be congratulated on this addition to Managua restaurants . I am confident that they will learn to adjust pricing, add specials and thus broaden their client base.

“THE "IN" PLACE IN MANAGUA”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Just open the best bar in Managua's nightlife. Attended by the top bartenders in the city. Tito, Luis and Michael "El Pirata"

Live music and super cool beers always with the right atmosphere make this bar a great option for a fun night.
