It might seem a bit pretentious when you first walk in but it became our home for our Shika Shika music collective / label thanks to their true enthusiasm and love for the music and for the people that would come down. Every show we played there was a crowd of loyal, wonderful, open-minded people ready to dance away the night. It wasn´t about a big sound system or an incredible mega-club but just a moment and a feeling — the place, the drinks, the ambience and, most of all, the people.
