Paid about £30 to visit this venue. Once we were seated by the doorman we soon realised we couldn’t see anything of the stage. We left after about 30 minutes. Honestly give this a miss, if you like music just work your way down to...More

This place is more for enjoying good music and a few drinks. The food is however, also OK. The Cuban sandwich or Pizza de Paseo will keep you going for quite some time.

Recommended by locals as best jazz club. Music was great straight ahead jazz. $10 cover gets you 2 drinks. Great view of the Malecon from the club. Would definitely return when I go back.
