New Bar at Gran Hotel Offers Live Music Nightly
The historic Gran Hotel Costa Rica in downtown San José welcomed a new bar to its elegant premises Feb. 14 – Bar Bufo Dorado (Golden Frog Bar). The bar seeks to draw, “the after-theater crowd” of the predominantly European and North American clientele that make up most of the hotel’s guests, said hotel manager Eric Gutiérrez.
“It’s a good place for adults to go and relax, as there aren’t many of these places in San José,” said patron Carlos Zamora.
The existing Casino Fiesta that sits belowground just inside the hotel’s main doors gave half of its space to the polished-wood, leather-seating Bufo Dorado, which offers a casual yet elegant atmosphere for listening to late-night jazz.
Open from 11 a.m. to midnight, the venue offers live music every night of the week after 9 p.m., as well as a wide selection of mixed drinks and a full menu of appetizers, main dishes and desserts.
The Gran Hotel sits opposite the National Theater in downtown San José’s CulturePlaza.
