  • Get there early & enjoy your food in a relatively quiet & peaceful bar setting, or get there late, dance your ass off, & feed your soul. Get the patatas bravas & thank us later. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Good time for a Guinness!!
  • Good tapas menu, some fine Spanish cheeses available
  • DJ Soul Sister on Saturday nights. Go upstairs and get a spot right in front. But don't dance too close to the table ;)
  • Walk through the bar to the upstairs for tapas. Order the goat cheese croquettes, lamb chop lollipops and mushroom manchego toast. so delicious!
  • Most things on the food menu are good, but I always go w/the "Trust Me" option. Always the chef's best--has yet to be anything but delicious
  • salmon pinxo FTW!
  • Goat cheese croquettes!
  • Trust me! Get it. Also the bbq shrimp (gambas a la planxa)
  • Michael Gulotta, chef of MoPho, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Mushroom Manchego toast.
  • Mushroom Manchego toast is ridiculously yummy!!!
  • Try the Spanish-style empanadas! Served until the wee hours.
  • Definitely get the "Trust Me" and the "Coca de la Casa." You won't be disappointed with either.
  • This place is awesome, my wallet got stolen but awesome bartenders who tried and friendly patrons got it back to me. Awesome place! Just don't leave your wallet out.
  • There is a great upstairs room for hot and cold tapas. They take credit cards up there, all cash downstairs.
  • Monday nights! Meschiya lake and the little big horns! Free dance lesson @9:30 band @10pm
  • If you don't know, now you know.
  • Leah every Tuesday night upstairs and every Friday night downstairs. :-)
  • Make a night of it off Bourbon: start at a nearby restaurant (eg, Port of Call, Muriels or Coops) then club on Frenchmen w/ live music (perhaps dba), & wind up @ MIMI's for a real NOLA experience.
  • Spanish Tapas:deep undercover!
