San Jose, Costa Rica has no shortage of venues for instant romance. While most are still top notch, many have fallen into disfavor. Unfortunately many of these remain on Internet tour maps, including the new famous Don Gordo walking tour of San Jose.
This article is a warning for venues that are of little interest to visit anymore. Those included are here primarily because there is little or no talent. Others factors may include one or more of the following.
- Culturally awkward for foreigner – Those who do not speak Spanish or have little experience in Latin America are likely to be out of place or uncomfortable in this setting.
- Off the Beaten Path – Not even near some other place that would make it worth coming to this part of town.
- Land Time Forgot – Little or nothing has been upgraded or repaired in this place since the 1980s. Any future improvement would be highly unlikely.
Excluded from the list is Lipstick Night Club, which despite usually having a great lineup of talent is a notorious clip joint that deserves its own waning page.
Editor’s Note: Please by all means comment if you feel one of these venues deserves reconsideration.
