“Vivid place”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

A bar at the pedestrian area, where every night a different band was playing.Strong drinks, cheap, nice local music, many people attended the program and local dancers were dancing with tourists and the place was getting crowded inside and outside as night was progressing.

“mellow and swinging”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

It weas not busy, when we entered the premises beginning of June.. A mix of tourists and locals listening to a rural band with menbers that gave the impression they just ended their work in the field or on the scaffold Numbers were fanaticaly announced by the man also trying to convince passersby to come in and some numbers a couple of youngsters gave a fine salsa demo. But what intrigued was the chubby lady with the big sunglasses, on the stage absently fidgeting her hair, was she the band's impresario? But then she began to sing and play guitar, acousitc, convincingly making clear that she belonged to the performers, and how!
Yeah, we very much enjoyend our visit.

Reviewed May 30, 2014

Good performance but mainly tourist inside, locals stay outside so makes the whole experience a bit odd
