“One of at he Worlds Great Dive Bars:”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

Yes, No Se Cade in La Antigua is a one of the world's great dive bars. Haven't seen all contenders, but I'm still conducting research. Great, dark, candle-lit interior, tobacco junkies, like me, smokin' out front, the staff are degenerate, friendly folks, nice folk just like us. Typicality there's marvelous more or less acoustic music startin' bout 22 hundred (10 bm). You gotta check it out if you visit La Antigua, and if you're in Central America and you don't visit La Antigua, you're clueless. See you there: Action Jackson, the Bluesman.

“Why cant this place be in my town?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Probably one of the coolest bars I've ever had the pleasure of consuming a drink in. It should be in a movie.

“Unique Bar Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

This is a very dimly-lit bar and populated with lots of hostel visitors. It's not in the center of town so it didn't seem to be touristy. There's free popcorn and very unique drinks. We tried an Ilegal cocktail with jalapeno and it was unlike anything I'd ever tasted. There's a lot of music - it's a loud place - and dancing in one room of the bar. Everyone we met inside was friendly and having a good time.

“Sans Don Henley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Besides being the location where I was introduced to Ilegal Mezcal, for which I'll remain eternally grateful, the music here is worth a visit.

A printed list of artists absolutely forbidden to be played is posted on the wall. Don't expect to be spoon fed mindless drivel along the lines of what ever other bar allows their talent to perform.

The Eagles are on that list.

And I shower abundant blessings for somebody finally drawing that line.
