This is the most popular bar in Yumba, the entertainment is free. One must be very open minded, it is fantastic and it is a must go to bar when you are in the area.

If you.re an irresponsible adult ...yes by all means. But if you.d sooner ensure that they avoid copious volumes of smoke, constant swearing and fake male parts being swung around, it.s the place for you. Enjoy!
