El Cuartel de la Boca del Monte
As the night spreads its shroud and the explosion of the sunset's wildest colors start giving way to the blinking of the stars, many go home to rest. However, many others start a new life cycle: "Living La Vida Loca" (Living the crazy life). El Cuartel is the perfect place to do so. Here, people of all ages, colors and backgrounds gather to eat, drink, listen to the music, and make new friends. It has three different areas, including an art gallery, so you can "Live La Vida Loca" the way you like it best.
I came here because of the reviews below, and it was a Monday at about 7:30 PM when I got there. The place was empty. Once I got inside, I walked through the big door on the left because I saw somebody in there, and was instantly ushered out and the door was shut behind me. I went to the bar/dj area past all the empty tables, and sat at the bar. The music was obnoxiously loud, and it was a mix of Coldplay, '50s slow-dance and tired '80s pop. Depressing. The server was polite enough, and spoke English. I ordered the pork chops with wine. I received a very dry, partially burnt chicken breast, but I decided not to complain because I would need them to call a taxi for me later. I ate a few bites and then the mashed potatoes. At least those were good. I was thirsty and wanted another soda, but I felt very unwelcome there, and the music was killing me, so I decided to leave as fast as I could.
Not modern not trendy but music, people (local and foreigners) and drinks creates an excellent atmosphere.
The place has three sections of choice: live music (grupo Marfil), Restaurant and DJ music. And drinks are not expensive.
100% recommended - be sure to be there on a Monday
