Bar de Cao

Address: Av. Independencia 2400 – San Cristóbal

“Los Hermanos Cao” opened their food store and retail alcoholic drinks shop in 1915. This is witnessed by a white and blue china plaque from those times; likewise, there is a wood and marble counter, tables and old fridges from back then, as well as the shelves crowded with bottles covered in dust behind the bar.
The spirit of the original business was kept despite the modifications it underwent when the café opened. Nowadays, it offers Spanish tapas, besides typical drinks and coffee.
This is a quiet place where habitués come in and feel time freezes, while they see the fast traffic along Independencia Avenue through the windows.
