This is a good ambience place, with good music selection and overall good service. But if you come to this place every 3-4 months, you will not know one person but the owner... What happens there???

This is an "extranero" foreigner hangout with locals as well. A small place where "Everybody" knows your name and hangs out for information and good casual food and drink. Located near the heart of the Enretainment center Park Lleras it sits a block or two away on a street with many other restaurants. If your Spanish is not stellar and... More

According to Tripadvisor there are 152 better places in Medellin. I can think of a handful of places I might rate higher but then they are fine dining, or excellent regional food establishments. But, when I'm looking for a bar then I'd choose the Shamrock. I'm not sure that it does consider itself an Irish bar - there's the word... More

I was back there again in January. It hasn't changed much. I had one quick drink and moved on. I really don't care whether their burgers or wait staff are hot and their beer is cold. That's fine. But STOP calling this an Irish bar. Or tell me--what's Irish about it? I'm Irish and I can answer that. NADA.

Zach and Albert run a fine place here. They make great steak sandwiches and burgers and the curry nachos are excellent. There's almost always an amiable crew of expats hanging about under the patio umbrellas outside and they're always up for a good chat over a few beers or shots of rum. A very comfortable character bar on the outskirts... More

The service nor the food has ever been disappointing and the wait staff is always friendly. The California burger and curry nachos are a must try. Futbol and football can be seen at any given time along with cold Guinness on the tables. Gotta swing by and say what's up to Zach!

English spoken here...if you like sports and a great Margarita, this is the place. Try the Curry Nachos for a unique blend of fav flavors, or the Ensalada Mexicana for a "healthier" meal. We frequent here and have never been disappointed. Zach, the manager is a great source for info about the city, and even gives generous recommendations for other... More
