Enclosed within an old Venetian structure, this is the city's rock n' roll bar. The music is -obviously- rock n roll but sometimes also hard rock, punk and blues Rock n Roll as way of life!

One of the few authentic rock bars in the center of Heraklion. Rock music, perfect environment and a big variety of beers, cocktail and other drinks. The staff are very friendly and the owners. In the summer you can enjoy your cocktail at the outside bar also. Congratulations for the perfect work you have done. Keep going. R&R.

A good bar for those that enjoy good music. Bartenders are good and friendly. Drinks are good and music is outstanding.
