If you are in the habit of judging a book by its cover, then you will spot nothing out of the ordinary once you step into Arteria. Very regular stuff stuff such as tables, chairs, beer on tap and patrons on a roll are what you might find here. But then again we are talking about Arteria's face vale, aren't we? What makes this regular watering hole stand apart from its peers is its lively ambiance. Arteria has an atmosphere unto itself that can have no compare. Nightly gigs, upcoming talent and good music is the order of the day here.
The Bravo Caffé is a place that has only been open a few years yet has managed to acquire a large clientele. The place itself is very nice: walls painted in contrasting colors (red and blue), large tables and smaller ones for couples, comfortable seats, warm and welcoming atmosphere. At Bravo Café you can have lunch, an aperitif, have dinner, sip cocktails and drink good wine - the selection of wines is not large but accurate - or drink homemade sangria. With its live music, the Bravo Caffé has earned its place on the jazz circuit, and has taken part in the city's jazz festivals such as "Jazz in Town" in 1998. The reason for its success is probably due to its location as well as the good service and nice surroundings, being in Via Mascarella, next to the Odeon and opposite the Jam Club.
