This bar is by far my favorite in East Boston especially because of the great service and the beautiful women there! The environment is very welcoming and everyone always seems to be having a great time! The workers are very attentive and friendly and even remembered me after my first visit! The place is very well decorated and the prices for drinks seem reasonable compared to the other bars around the city. From the times I have gone, I would suggest to arrive early, since it seems to reach capacity quickly especially in the weekends. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone trying to have a good time.. whether you're alone or with a group of friends!
Resentful ex- employee or still employee – I used to work in this place, and the funny thing is that I love the bar even as a guest, and as a former Bartender. I can say strongly say that the cleaning standars are excelent, I love the environment, I feel like I am in Colombia still, the new years eve party is my favorite night, the celebration is unbelievable. The only problem i see is that if i dont go at 9pm at 10 the place will be filled up, but even with all the people there i will still wait if i want to have some fun. The point here ANTONY is that when you wrote your review it sounded wayyyyyyyyy to personal, you even describe the '' New owner'' Cristina who doesnt even stay there longer than 2 hours! you even went to the depth of describing how she dress when THAT has no relevance to customer service. Second the way you refered to the girl who receive the money from the coctail waitress was out of line. The way you reffered to these two girls sounded to personal for me you have a personal issue with them, RESENTFUL? Sadly if you were employed befored and you got fired you must forgot that in good times when you were working there you made enough money to eat, so the least thing you may do is be grateful, AND IF YOU STILL WORK THERE! that means you are unhappy in that place, my recomendation JUST QUIT and get a job that you really like and don't talk bad about it, like or not, from the money you make there, you pay your bills every month.
PS: the good thing about work at the Mental Health Department is to learn how to profile people. I got you!
"Anthony" you are feeling WAY too resentful! Wonder why!?? Could you be a current employee? Probably!
Well "Anthony" you are probably wondering who I am? I am Cindy the daughter of the owners and I myself am not too happy with your review! If this is how you felt about our business you should have let the owners know, maybe something could have been done, instead of writing this horrible review!
What Happen To This Place!!!! – Went back to this bar after a long while. Boy what a change!! I guess there is a new owner some lady named Cristina, who by the way thinks that she is 18yrs old by the way she was dressed. The whole ambiance has changed. The music is not the same I asked for a song and I was told that because they do not have a DJ license they cant play it cause it would mean people would dance and they would get fines because of the entertaining license that they don't have. A girl at the bar who look like the electric outlet got her, was not pleasant she was rude. She seem to be the one who collects all the money from outside sales. I remember this place having really beautiful girls specially the cashier who was very pleasant and very outgoing but had a name that was hard to say. I sat back to give this place a chance and was entertained by the new owner Christina who did nothing but make fun of the girls who work for her, you can tell they were not pleased, the whole atmosphere was rough, I could see that all the girls were trying to avoid the new boss, they would walk away when she came to that special corner as you entered the place on the left just to avoid any conversation with her. I thought it was entertaining. The place does smell, but again it is Medallo. The lack of sanitation in this place is an outrage. I guess the glass washer doesn't work because I watched the girl at the bar just dip the glass in water and re use it. Is this even legal??? At this point I had enough I even left my drink after two sips because I saw the bartender just dip the glass in water and not sanitize properly. I will not be coming back to this place that is for sure. I wonder if the state checks on places like this for sanitation this is how you can catch a disease. I really do not recommend this place to anyone...
ambiente excelente – soy clente frecuente, me siento en mi bella colombia; la musica las mujeres y el guaro q no puede faltar; yo siempre invitos mis amigos y lo recomiendo como el mejor bar de east boston . venga y disfrutalo .
great place for adventure – When I started looking for information about bars in East Boston I had a huge surpraise, because I never found any review about the area, just some post, and then I decided visit the area and write a review for future reviewers. The area looks dirty, and many latino walking. The place is very smelly but at least smell as a soap. The bartender was very friendly. Suddenly, the owner appear and shake the hand for any customer kind of nice. The range of prices there are high for the area $8 and half botlle of aguardiente 35 and 1 bootle 70. The restroom was very clean good!
Looks like a tipical day bar in Colombia, when you can get some aguardiente in the middle of the day and listen some latino music.
I am going to invite a few friends and come back to write more.
Ok, I hear they have security every night and disjockey as well.
Hi I came back, to write more. I visited the bar past week was nice in general. I arrived around 5 pm with a friend, was empty but good service, the barthender was a beauty colombian lady from Medellin gorgeous blond hairk, big bobies, she was bored because we were the unique customers. The music was alright latin music, after 7 arrived more people but at the time I was drunk I can not remember to much. In general, I like the place but you need to get familiar with the environment. Finally, we went out arround 11pm. Defenely, I will come back.
