This night club has been here for a long while. It is THE place to go dancing to the older Latin music here in the Zone. I call it "The Old Peoples Dance Place" but really there are all ages to be found here. It is very small so if you do want a table it is best to arrive early or you may have to sit outside on the sidewalk which is fun also.
The best authentic falafil, hummus and shwarma around! The picante sauce is good and hot and their tahini sauce is very tasty, both of which can be purchased in large amounts to take home. The restaurant has been newly remodeled.

When you see a restaurant that is filled with the locals you have to try it out yourself. Nothing fancy but they serve great typical Dominican fare including the daily plato del dia/ plate of the day (what is the plate of the day you may ask, La Bandera of course) They also have fresh baked goods available and are open early for the breakfast crowd but not for dinner. Their goat anything (stew, guisada, braised) is worth a try.
