    The Taberna del Gallo is located in the Colonial Spanish Quarter on St George street. It was established in 1734 and was one of about 40 bars in the area by 1740. Today, they serve a small assortment of wines, beers and sangria along with soft drinks. Sometimes you will see people inside in period dress. It is lit with torches to add to the authenticity. Hours are 12 PM to 5:15 PM Wednesday and Thursday; 12 PM to 9 PM Friday and Saturday; and 1 PM to 5:15 PM on Sunday. They are closed Monday and Tuesday.

    Tavern de Gallo: Ho Ho Ho and a bottle of Rum!

    The way we found this pub was that we were wandering through St. George street and we heard some Pirates singing. We followed the voice and entered the tiniest little pub filled with Pirates and Wenches.
    Behind the bar is the patio, very dark, lit up with only tiki torches (they had no electricity ya know..) there's a table of Pirates singing and drinking and all the patrons were having a great time clapping along. They only served wine and beer (and very little selection at that) but it's definately a must see!

    Dress Code: hook and cape. ;)
