When I enter in this overrated bar, I thought it was an asylum !
The medium age of the people in there was around 60.
The music was decent.
The prices are low.

But for a person under 40 there are a lot of better pleces in Puerto del Carmen.
If you want to socialize with young people avoid this one.

Thank You Marius
We can only presume you came in at around 10pm in the middle of off-season , Rory plays relaxed acoustic music untill around 11pm as we have a very varied audience in Attendance , ESPECIALLY in Feb, March and April, it kicks up a notch from 11pm to 1am , and the busier season for teenagers and people in their 20s is from "June to September". But in fairness... Bruce Springsteen is in his 60s, it doesnt mean he is not cool! - You need to find a Nightclub with Alco-pops and strobe lights somewhere :)

The venue was easy to find, the singer had a nice voice and seemed to really enjoy his job. The crowd were mainly Irish which added to the friendly atmosphere. We stayed for one drink has we were looking more for a party atmosphere and we could see there was no particular dance floor. However a good place to pop in to see what's happening.

Rory, Cara and the crew will make your holiday.....the best entertainment to be had! Rory never stops and plays everything. Albert is an excellent guitarist with magic fingers he mesmerising to watch. Drinks are cheaper than other bars and no cover charge....you'll just keep going back. The craic is mighty.

We stayed for 2 weeks and went here pretty much every night. It's a guaranteed great night! I couldn't fault this place nor do I want to. It's a perfect place and even my friend who has totally different music interests enjoyed it. A place to bring people together.
