Enjoyed a fun night of music here. There is a guy who serves as an enthusiastic master of ceremonies. The music starts at 9:00, and the place gets fuller as the night goes on. The music is good.

We were invited while using the wifi in the square, to enjoy the music. The show started at 5:30 after a few Crystal and encouragement from the host everyone had a good time. The band of mostly young men was very accomplished.
