The Spanish tapa style restaurant is upstairs and a lounge/club downstairs with an additional bar. There's frequently a dj and they offer salsa classes during the week. The staff is friendly and the drinks are strong! My company hosted a holiday party here as well and it was comfortable however very dark in the downstairs space!

This Spanish restaurant and bar offers an amazing ambience and is great to gather with friends. Enjoy the tapas and Sangria while watching the live music they offer every Friday night. They have a $5 cover on Fridays and the drinks are a bit expensive as it is located downtown. Come here to show off your salsa moves!

THE PERFECT PLACE FOR SUNDAY BRUNCH!:) WE DROVE FROM OCEANSIDE BUT FELT LIKE WE WERE TRANSPORTED TO SEVILLA, SPAIN! I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN! THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT, THE AMBIANCE AMAZING, AND THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS AND FILLED WITH SO MANY FLAVORS. IT WAS SO GOOD THAT WE ALSO DECIDED TO ORDER FOOD TO TAKE HOME FOR LATER! WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK! I ESPECIALLY ENJOYED THE SANGRIA AND THE LIVE MUSIC!

This was the location of our Gogobot San Diego Pro party - and while the company was fantastic, the venue...was not. The establishment didn't have our reservation (made and paid for in advance), and made everyone wait around until they could figure out what happened. The tapas were sufficient in quantity, but lacking somewhat in quality - garlic shrimp, bacon-wrapped dates, and mashed sweet potato pate were tasty enough, but the sausages were chewy and burnt, the pork in the main dish was chunky with sinewy pieces of fat, and the herb-crusted potato wedges had a questionable hair in them (and it wasn't a harmless stray hair, either. It was THAT hair.)
At our complaint, the manager offered us a pitcher of sangria, but no other kindness or friendly gesture was extended. The service was straight-forward and minimal, lacking in further interaction. At 9pm, the cafe begins the transition to a nightclub; the dining floor is transformed into a dance floor. While booming nightclub music poured from the speakers and neon blue lights replaced the previously romantic setting, the staff bustled around and did everything they could to make us leave, short of telling us outright. Our server had promised us dessert, so while half our group waited as the clock ticked later, the staff tore down the cafe around us - including pulling up the tablecloths on our own table and folding up our cheap white chairs while we were still milling around. After dessert was served, unsmilingly, we were given about 3 1/2 minutes to scarf down a bite and vacate the premises.
The show, however, which consisted of a one-hour live flamenco performance, was fantastic. The dancers were talented and professional, and although the atmosphere in the cafe was cheesily artificial, they helped bring that aspect of culture alive to some extent. If it were not for the dance show - and of course the company of my fellow diners - I would have left, and I don't have much desire to return.

the tapas were amazing here. we *tried* hard not to overeat because we went downstairs to the club for free salsa lessons afterward. i'd have to go back and look at the pictures we took of the food that night, but i do remember walking back to the hotel with our bellies full and our feet tired.
