I was walking down Calle 9 from the Del Rey the other day & was surprised to see the old NY Bar location open for business. It is now operating as "New York Streets", calling itself a sports bar. It's been cleaned up & modernized from the old days & still has that little balcony with the million $ view of the bus stop & the pungent aroma of bus fumes. Saw a few ex-pat types drinking in there but none of the weathered "talent" that use to hang there. I stopped in, had a couple of rums & reminisced of 2004 & beyond when I first came to SJO. They've got a full menu & good drink prices so you might stop in have a cold beer & a bowl of chifrijo.

Those were the days sitting in the terrace over looking the street. Now there are comfy seats and a table. The menu looked good and reasonably priced. They did not have wine. But was told they would soon.

We used to have cigars and beers out on the balcony many years ago. Lots of fun and good memories. Glad that it has re-opened, will go there in April. :D

Was there in the afternoon, had soup, was very good. Menu prices were reasonable. 1200 colones beer, they said they had happy hour for hard liquor. Nice bartenders. I liked the place. Don't know if girls go in the evening, but it has potential.
