Lonely Planet review

In this grungy dive bar, the 'Old Masters' are the Ramones and Black Sabbath. Somehow a handful of pool tables, 1980s pinball machines, unkempt DJs and lovably surly bartenders add up to an ineffable magic. Bands occasionally make an appearance and the waterfront terrace scene is more like an impromptu party in someone's backyard.

All walks of life congregate here: the common denominator isn't fashion, age or politics, it's a diehard love of rock and roll.
