Bar/Restaurant: Ron Kon Rolas
Dance Club & Live Music – As usual, we stumbled upon this bar, my choice, because the other places my friend wanted to go were too loud for my taste, where you have scream at each other all night. A la the reason for her voice loss and deep raspy voice that night.
This was an unfolding evening to this bar after having a little food (dumplings) and 1 beer, for me, at the Chinese restaurant Siam Wie (opposite La Union), then to the bar restaurant at the Nua in the Hotel Renaissance’s Asian fusion bar/lounge across from the Metro Center (where I had sushi, which was really very decent– to be reviewed) and then a short walk to Los Robles to Ron Kon Rolas.
They have various things going on at this spot, and that night there was a DJ playing some very nice house sounds. House music based in a Colombian style music as a base, mixed with Latin pop, tribal beats and snippets of trance. I was able to really groove to this music, for the first time in Managua– good dance music for a house dance music chica from downtown NYC.
The dance floor was mostly full of a very young crowd, 15-25, I know crazy young and not able to really dance to this type of music. At least, not like I can, after partying to house from the major cities of the USA to Europe. The style of dance for this music is unique and a particular style that is like NO other and I often get an audience when I dance (not bragging just explaining); although, on this night I was very unprepared for dancing like I knew I was going to get down like that… I was over dressed and had no powder. Only a east coast house music dancer would understand this.
Summary: the chicken wings were surprisingly excellent, well worth coming back for– crispy and really tasty in a tangy BBQ sauce. However, I won’t be ordering the curly fries again (not good quality, and overcooked)
I will be returning to this bar to see what else they have to offer!
