Somehow I managed to come here every night of my trip. The drinks are cheap and music is bumping. Sit inside if you’re looking to feel the salsa in your soul (the music is loud!), but if you’re looking for a more casual experience, you...More

This is a small place, the music was so extremely high that it made drinking uncomfortable; It is not a nightclub, so that volume was totally out of place. The atmosphere was very bad, the people did not look good and we felt like we...More

It is real small inside however the local flavor is what draws you to this place. The music by DJ is super loud. However the dancing in the place is as authentic as you can get. Drinks are cheaper as well

Salsa, dancing, affordable beers and superb location. Music makes you want to move even if you cannot dance! It is not a club but a local bar and worth a visit if you want to feel you are in Colombia!

I was almost certain I was at the wrong place when I walked up; it is lit up like a convenience store in this bar. I enjoyed the music, and someone even ‘volunteered’ to dance with me (and I have 2 left feet). So, I...More

Good Salsa, but inside music is too loud. After a minute you get used to it. Though people is way too serious, bartenders are not as welcoming as they should. In general terms, music is good, service not so good, mood definitely boring. If you...More

Definitely head along and grab yourself a table on the sidewalk patio. There's about 30 tables so you should be fine to get one, but if you have to wait it won't be long. Then you can sit back, listen to some classic salsa sounds,...More
