The atmosphere is warm, I believe is one of the few places where locals have not been priced out. For a Salsa lover, this is a dream place, no fee to get in, fairly priced beers and great service!

You can't sit at a table outside unless you buy a bottle, so we didn't sit down. The bartender was rude and no one was dancing before 11pm. We ended up leaving before the dancing actually began.

Great music and simple drinks. Great place to hang out for couple beers and listen to Cuban and Colombian tunes with locals. Good luck finding a place to sit. But if you are in Cartagena this place is a must for a cool one.
