Awesome bar with great music (and if they aren't busy, Ramon might just let you plug your phone in so you can listen to your own music on the stereo outside)! We were there for drinks, so we didn't eat, but the Mezcal is AWESOME!!!!! Wait, I guess we did eat some crickets. Much to my surprise they were delicious.... More

This bar has a really cool outdoors section. Couches are outside and they have picnic table set around a projector in the back. If you keep going, you can find the stairs to the rooftop which is really neat! Fun place to hang out with your bowl of crickets!

Cool place to hang out, especially when they have live music in the back garden. Really nice drinks and tapas. La Gran Mosca Verde is very different from the other bars in town, It is somewhat out of the way, hidden behind a heavy wooden door so it is less touristed. The building is set up with both an indoor... More

Nice spot in what seemed like an old house, a bit off the beaten track but good food and drink in an interesting setting!

Great place, amazing tapas and cocktails. I felt like I was in a hip little bar around the block that the locals hang out in. Lots of europeans and locals..... indie rock music videos playing on a wall in the backyard. House music on the weekends. YAY love this place
