Bar's Name

El Esco Bar I dare you!! Only joking! It's a hard one, best to be significant in Spanish and English. Can we have a rough idea of the site, ambience or whatever? Linzi.

Norton Rats

I always liked the Norton Rats name.You know the place in Cusco,but I don,t want to rip him off.
I,m thinking it has to be a little bit pub,a little bit bike and a little bit Colombia
eg "The Old Velocetts Arse Carajo!!!"
Lets try things along those lines

Assuming that Albert has the same target audience for this bar as his bar in Quito, world travellers, how about "The 7 Seas".

Crutcher's Columbian Cantina Con Caro Cerveza y Chicas.

Ride safe.

Still might be a bit tricky for the expat whose wife has no sense of humor.
But a classic none the less.
