    Coming for the night? Make sure you get here before 11pm because that's when a line to the rooftop begins. And don't forget about the food! Maria makes WONDERFUL authentic empanadas and arepas!

    Service here is reliably rude, but it's a popular bar and well-frequented by tourist gays and local gays. If you sit in the dining area, order in the dining area.
