The shisha is okay. Their sangria is not that good but the music and atmosphere is nice. Staff super friendly

Looking for a shisha lounge in the Courthouse area on a recent business trip this place showed up. Perfect. Exactly as you would expect - low lighting, dark decor, full bar with some interesting drinks (I went with the Guarapo Mule) and full shisha menu. I had them mix watermelon and mint - I think my fave combination. I had... More

Atmosphere and music was good. Hookah was terrible. Got no buzz and it was too harsh. Service took forever but one of the managers was helpful.

Came here with my husband for a quick bite before a movie on a Monday night around 6pm. We were not disappointed at all!! Food was great, had tequenos, calamari and empanadas. My husband liked the guacamole so much he ate the rest out of the bowl, lol. He had a blue moon and I had 2 Mohitos, highly recommend... More

I've been here quite a few times and never disappoints. I went here with friends and had a great evening. Ordered a caipirinha as my drink of choice and it was delicious. We went early for dinner. Our server was new, but she did a awesome job. We ordered the Arepa sampler as appetizer and tostones... yum! For my dinner... More

good place for happy hour. The tapas are ok, not the best I've had. I like Las Tapas in Old Town Alexandria better. More authentic.

Good food – empanadas, plantains. Great drink specials, I especially like the Guava martini. Great place to dance on a Friday night and smoke hookah. Used to have a live band that was amazing – not sure if that is still the case because I haven’t seen them.

Overrated place. Zero atmosphere and staff so rude, it's incomprehensible actually.

We found this restaurant in Arlington totally by accident. it was at the foot of the hill on our way to the Metro. It is a combination many styles of Central American cooking with many interesting "native" dishes. Lots of choices but every entree we had was exceptional. Would highly recommend. They have hookas at Happy Hour. Very dark inside,... More
