We have been there about 6 times, a nice variety of chicken wings and drinks, nices prices, a band plays on live, sometimes the service is kinda slow but is normal, they have many clients, they have smoking area. Food is delicious! and you can watch the UFC there, just catch the shows schedule.

I have lived in Valladolid for 2 years and had seen this place but never been in I finally went in and realised what a great pub I have been missing. Good beer large selection and cheap draft beer. Also love there wings, burgers and my wife loves the salads and pasta. Good for couples and groups.

Really struggled to find a pub in this city centre. Finally found one. Looked at TripAdvisor and saw 'Scott L's' review and thought finally. However...... Sorry Scott, 6 Mexican beers is not 'Untappd' worthy. And the expensive beers are buckeys of 6 of more beers, not an unusual unheard of beer, ie 'barril'. The small fridge with two small shelves...

I was brought here by one of the guys working at my hostel. Our group all enjoyed the food and drink in the outdoor seating outback. It felt more of a restaurant than a bar with locals all coming late for the chicken wings that were on offer that day. Valladolid is not a town known for its nightlife and... More

What a great pub! So nice to get away from remixed 80s pop music and hear some rock n roll! Great beer and liqour selection. Pub style food (no sushi) but not too greasy. Great wings! Dark? yes and a pub should be. No dingys to be found,just genuine folks who want to chill,drink,and snack. Only a 20 peso cab... More

We use the Untappd app and have an unnatural obsession with trying every new beer we see, and such, we'd knocked out all the normal Mexican beers at home in the States. Absenta had a great little selection of Mexican craft (artesenial) beers like Tempus. This was also the only place I saw Dos Equis Ambar on draught. Also some... More

My brother and I visited this pub in Valladolid both nights we stayed there. It's not in the centre, but was close to where we were staying. It's modern and clean, with nice decor, friendly staff and not at all touristy, it was full of young locals. We ate the steak wrap, which was really delicious, big, and served with... More
