When it comes to entertainment, Antigua’s 6a Calle is an unsuspecting little street running east-west just a block south of the Parque Central. In fact, with the exception of the Santa Clara convent and the historical wash-house/park combo at Tanque de la Union, you might even find the easternmost portion of the street (6a Calle Oriente) a little on the dry side. Don’t be fooled, though. As you continue your leisurely stroll westward to 6a Calle Poniente , a few places will likely catch (and hold) your attention.
First, there’s the side-by-side duo of Reilly’s en la Esquina and La Sala. Reilly’s is actually one of two locations throughout the city, this one being more low key with multiple rooms and a pool table. It’s a little on the pricier side, but the atmosphere is top notch. Next door at La Sala is where things tend to get a little out of control. Just think: bar-top dancing, shot pouring, cliché club music listening with a cool upstairs terrace bar for anyone looking to avoid quite so much, er, mayhem. A little further down the line on the corner of 6a Calle and 7a Avenida, the Rainbow Café rounds out your best options. Known for its live music, great vibes, and delicious, healthy food, consider this a can’t miss any day or evening. Enjoy.
