This laid-back expat bar is kind of a dive, but it's been much-loved for almost 20 years as a great place to kick back and hear free live music nightly. Bands play everything from rock and pop to reggae, jazz, blues, folk, and even Dixieland jazz, with live music from about 8:30 to 11:30pm. It has British beer on tap, as well as a menu offering steak pie, fish and chips, and other pub fare, with happy hour Monday to Saturday from 5 to 7pm.
