We really enjoy this gig as it’s one of only a few that locals get to see us perform as we are in the hotels mostly. One after work for drinks which most times turns into more drinks and dinner. It’s a really cozy bistro environment and well suited for the music we play. The staff are great and very friendly. Probably being over the water with a gentle breeze, great food, atmosphere and music puts everyone in a good mood during their Tapas experience.”
