Apparently this closed down - we couldn't find it and someone we asked said the building had been torn down. Other places to have a beer nearby though.

An incredibly basic bar. In fact, strike that; let's be generous and say "rustic" because I don't want to give the opinion of anything other than a really good time spent here. It's a bar which only holds around 20-30 people, up a rickety staircase...More

As a solo female traveller it can be hard to find a place to go in the evenings with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The crowd here is just lovely, the staff are all very freindly and welcoming - I will never forget my time here!

This is the only place we found open after 22:30. You can find music and drinks, a fresh and windy terrace. Good place to stay.
