It’s easy to miss the narrow alley that leads to the main entrance to this hot spot across from the Cine Magaly. Owned by a local filmmaker, the Observatorio’s decor includes a heavy dose of cinema motifs. The main bar and performing space is large, with high ceilings and exposed brick walls on one side. Mondays tend to be for salsa dancing, while Wednesdays often feature stand-up comedy. There’s occasional live music and movie screenings, and a decent menu of tapas and assorted appetizers and main dishes drawn from various world cuisines. It’s open Monday through Saturday, 6pm to 2am.
