Mescafé does not have the same terrace as Natura Dub or Big Ben but has a very nice and special atmosphere when you enter the bar. With its futuristic appearance and the reggaeton music they play, it is a perfect place to drink something before you go out in one of the clubs in Valencia. The bar is filled with tables where mostly Spaniards enjoy their drinks and dance to the reggaeton vibes. A nice little detail of Mescafé is that you can play Jenga, it can be hilarious.
This might be the best known bar of this neighbourhood. El Bósforo does not have the atmosphere most tourist appreciate but, because of the location next to the University of Valencia, the terrace is always filled with students. Beer is also very cheap. El Bósforo is known for its Kebab, people say it’s the best kebab of Valencia.
