This place has amazing mojitos. Also Friday nights they do have wonderful Spanish music. Their mojitos come with a stick of sugar cane - OH YEAH! Pretty amazing. I didn't get a chance to have the food, but I did enjoy the atmosphere.

which offers plenty of unique small businesses

the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
