  • We spent a few hours here to have drinks and listen to some jazz. Very cool vibe - a visiting guitar player from Mexico did two numbers, then they opened the floor to anyone who wanted to jam. Come ea...  more »

  • I went to El Sotano a couple of times. The best part for me was their sandwiches. They are very nice I would say, also taking in consideration the price. The beers are normal (nothing out of the box) ...  more »

  • This is a small pub located in the heart of San Jose its a bit small but very cozy place they serve all kinds of local brew and commercial beer. Be careful and don't walk alone to it too late, best to take a Taxi cab or a UBER. This place is known for alternative culture. Tends to have many local bands and solo artist play at its venue. If your like me and like to get to know new music while having a beer and eating good food this might be a fun place for you. Parking is a bit difficult best to come by foot, Taxi or UBER. But you might get lucky and find a good spot in front on the side of the road. Cool small place good for date too.
  • Excellent music, super cool jams, great cozy environment. Go on Mondays.
  • A second home for lots of great local musicians that became a second home for this traveling musician. After my third or fourth visit I felt like family. Cool repurchased old house with a bohemian feel. Quiet but comfortable on weeknights with a blues jam on Monday and a jazz jam on Tuesday. When a scheduled act plays it's usually overflowing. They get remarkably good global artists considering its size. Food is cheap and beer is fairly priced. Say hi to Jorge for me.
  • Buenos evento, comida. (Tips: Llevar Menudo o tarjetazo)
  • Good atmosphere
