Snug bar with a dance floor at the rear. Ruut is an amiable and professional barkeeper. Enjoy reasonably priced beer, or better taste his lekker cocktails. International LGB-crowd of any age, yet straightfriendly I guess.

Magnificent place, cool bartender and very good drinks. Absolutely the first place at the town of Hersonissos. There are not very crowded hours before midnight when you can seat at the bar with good music and nice conversations, and after midnight more dense action comes.

The owners are so welcoming and the music is great. It is small but perfectly formed. Be warned about the cocktails, which are lovely but lethal.

In tegenstelling tot wat op TripAdvisor staat ga ik om 22.00 open en sluit tussen 03.00 en 05.00 afhankelijk van de drukte.
