“Jazzy cool”

Stumbled across this tiny cafe in search of a pint and a quick bite, and weren't disappointed. Sure, the service was horrendously slow, but we weren't in a rush, and the atmosphere - with as much people squeezed into every inch of the pace install metal chairs around small round metal tables - was cool. Things almost certainly got lost in translation, especially when the ageing jazzy lounge singer invited musical guests to sing with her, or play an instrument to accompany her performance.

The staff are really friendly. The rating is for the atmosphere, not so much the food (empanadas were decent), but I'd go back for an evening of feeling like a hipster.

I visited this place on two consecutive nights for the live music. The first night featured a jazz band including a saxophonist and Spanish guitarist and the second night a tango singing group. Both highly recommended. The female manager was particularly welcoming and friendly and spoke excellent English.

This was a very friendly bar around the corner from my hotel, great music and a very talented artist Bernard singing dancing and playing piano and saxophone. The owner was very nice and welcoming.
