The bar is nice, cheap beer and great music. But dispite that, the bar is always empty. I went there two times, and both of them was like this. The bar looks like a ghost town, not a pub. Don't recommend.

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
