Whenever we visit Sal, we make it a point to spend some time here. The atmosphere is great, the service, second to none, and the cocktails are buzzing. We came back to Sal November 2015, and yet again we were not disappointed with the Blu Bar. Excellent!

This is a small place but a very tradicional night house. Full of cape verdians, life music and the best barmans in SAL. Thanks Claudios you are the best.

This small but very friendly bar has not much happening in it until late at night when the live music starts to play that is when the dancing starts and lasts all night it quite often ends up with dancing in the streets a good night to be had all round by every one.

We were recommended this place by our guide on an island tour (guy called Eddie) who also happened to be the drummer in the band! Music was great but the bar was a little on the cramped side because there was a few people in.
