This cave-like, stone-walled spot is a haven for hipsters in Casco Viejo. Housed underneath the popular Luna Castle Hostel, its outdoor patio and often crowded inside space offers a down-to-earth spot for affordable drinks and youthful conversation.more

A very relaxed place, very good atmosphere. It has a patio where you can sit, have a drink and talk or you can enter the disco where the music is excellent. Good vibes, drinks at a good price. Very good place to spend the night...More

I went to Relic bar on a Saturday night and had an absolute blast !! It is a rustic bar and very authentic. It is a very old style building built in 1688 with an amazing cool vibe going on. The crowd is very hip...More

Good music and moderately priced drinks! A great stop if you are bar-hopping. I don’t recommend staying at the hostel upstairs. I have heard that many things get stolen because it is easily accessible from the bar.

This bar is a Casco institution — you can't visit without having a drink here. The atmosphere subtly super cool in an open courtyard set between old buildings, and a cave-like indoor space. Full of locals and travelers, it's always an eclectic, super friendly crowd...More
