    Garufa - We Miss you!

    Hello,

    My wife and I were very disappointed to see Garufa was closed and has been that way since March. We have so many great memories over the last 14 years. Halloween was a blast. There is really nothing close like Garufa on the Island. Great live music, DJ, unique drinks and an eclectic mix of people, both visitors and locals. The bartenders and staff were the best! Blanca and Nelson we will miss you. We had the opportunity to run into Nelson during the week and it was bittersweet.
    We go to El Gaucho twice while here for 12 days and always look forward to walking across the street for a great night of entertainment. Now it is not the same. So much so we will only go to El Gaucho once while here.
    Hopefully El Gaucho owners will find new owners for Garufa soon.


    Thank you
    Sean

    yes Garufa is missed!
    my husband used to love sitting in there, enjoying a cigar and we both enjoyed the music and the people and a nice drink or 2.
    the space still sits empty?

    Yes it still stands empty but everything is in there minus the liquor. It's too bad as the trolley will make its way to this neighborhood in the coming years. Downtown and surrounding is making a come back. We walked the Trolley tracks last Sunday while things were quiet and it is very impressive to see the exciting changes.
