- Night Out
May 11, 2018
El Coq, the brain child of Colombian actor Andres Juan, is a proper see-and-be-seen spot. The bar is reminiscent of a French country greenhouse, complete with basketball goalposts and comfy sofas in which to sit with a drink in your hand. There’s a retractable ceilings spotted with Spanish moss. The bar is a haven for creative types – media folks, actors, and people from the music industry. Speaking of music, there’s a hip electro/indie soundtrack occasionally spliced with ’80s hip-hop. There are some quality cocktails on offer, including some zingy ginger mojitos, and an above average food selection too. It’s the atmosphere that makes this place though, it’s lively and stylish and exciting, and the fact that there’s nowhere quite like it in the city.
