This is a great place on Plaza Botero to have coffee, a sweet, and watch what is going on at the plaza. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

We tried to visit El Laboratory on the 25th June, on trip advisors recommendation, only to be told that it had been closed down several weeks before! How annoying!

Popped in here for a quick drink and was very impressed. I often find that craft cocktails are hit or miss when travelling, and these were definitely a hit. This place would do well in Manhattan. They have all the classics, plus some good concoctions...More

We had a drink here most nights as the music is good and the staff are friendly. The place itself has a unique feel with a variety of tourist and locals. It opens at 6pm but picks up around 10ish. No real dress standards.

Great cocktails. Great staff. Great Happy Hour prices. A must if you are in Cartagenas. The owner was very friendly and recommended other great places for my gf and I to visit, while we were touring Colombia. I would definitely come back here.

Nice place to have a cocktail and enjoy the many selections of house made infused rum. We had great mojitos and the pineapple rum. Definitely will go back!

The had us with the sign! We only had one quick drink here but this is a very cool place for drinks and mixed music. Nice drink selection yet we never tried the food. :-(

Arrived quite early so we had the place to ourselves. Good selection of beer including 4 BBC beers. Decent mixed drinks using house infused liquors. Certainly not authentic but a nice change of pace.
