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.

I have been to this restaurant a dozen times over the course of the last 5 years. Let me tell you I have never left disappointed. The tapas, especially the arepas, are always fantastic. And the margaritas are no nonsense and to the point! A...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
