This bar is situated in a very dark derelict area behind il Mercatos Main Street. We tried to find it on foot but in the end caught a cab and the driver eventually got us there after asking other cab drivers where to go.
Upon arrival it was like walking into something from a bygone era.
There was a strong smell of urine masked by the dense blanket of smoke that engulfed the whole place.
As we had made quite an effort to find the place we decided to stay and watch the football.We found a table beside the door which we wedged open in order to try to breathe some clean air.
All was well until two local expats came in and asked for the television to be turned over to watch rugby.
A very rude scottish lady (who was obviously inebriated) got the remote and turned the tv over without even asking if we were watching the football.
I am assuming she is the landlady at this point and went over to the bar to ask why she had done this.
Her reply amazed me.
" If you don't like it go somewhere else I am not bothered about your custom"
Needless to say we left and got another cab to the tavern2 which is close by where we we're treat very well by attentive friendly staff.
My final advice if you still decide to go to the half crown is to take a gas mask and don't go specifically to watch football as you may well be disappointed.
