A great find, the best bar we visited in Corralejo.. big enough for a good crowd, yet small enough to be intermit. A feeling of the coffee shops of the Amsterdam cafes only without the hashish! (shame!) ..a really chilled out bar, loved it

Lovely little bar, been there many times and enjoyed them all but now the music has changed from something a bit edgy to more middle of the road verging on Ahhhhhhh it is still popular so they must be doing something right, still an enjoyable night out but not every night

Went here with my boyfriend one evening and were greeted by a warm and cosy atmosphere. We had previously tried coming in about 10:30pm one evening and found it to be full- it is popular with people of all nationalities! We went a little earlier one evening and really enjoyed the acoustic set.

This bar is a regular visit every holiday. Don't need to turn up until,after 9pm, acoustic set starts by 9.30 usually goes on until midnight. Gary and Dave are consistently good. Mondays and Fridays in particular. Great atmosphere. A must

Great little bar with live acoustic music from good musicians. Popular with brits and Europeans alike! If you are in Corralejo it's the best bar to visit!

Visited last night, after seeing good reviews on Trip Advisor. The beer was warm and flat. Not surprising watching the the way in which the bar tender tried to pour a pint. It was a 99 ice cream without the flake. We arrived before the live music started and there wasn't any kind of atmosphere. Wouldn't return or recommend.

We were recommended to go here and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere from the staff and other drinkers is very friendly so a good place to go if you are on your own. The musicians have a lively banter and the volume just right so a conversation can still be had (sorry musicians!). There are 'guest musician' appearances by... More

we chose to go to after recommendation by one of the waiters at the hotel we were staying. We thought it was a great little place, good atmosphere with reasonably priced drinks. Fairly basic but clean and the staff were friendly. It was live music which was excellent and just added to the atmosphere. Well worth a visit if you're... More
