Brahms and Liszt. This very popular bar is found halfway along the Parque La Paz strip of venues in Las Americas and has been entertaining, feeding and quenching the thirst of holidaymakers for nearly 20 years.
As I said on my "Nightlife" main page, it has been described as being like a "working men's club" and, for those of you not from the UK who don't know what this means, it is a compliment.
Admittedly, in Tenerife, it's difficult to keep up with all the developments, but I believe that the manager of the venue, Jim, who had run it since its inception, has, sometime in 2009, departed and, after a full refurbishment, the bar is now open, under new management.
As befits the "working men's club" comparison, this large bar is an out-and-out British pub, even having the beer "Old Speckled Hen" on tap. Try finding that anywhere else in Tenerife!
The spacious interior has loads of comfortable seating and there is also a large terrace.
They must be doing something right, because holidaymakers return time and time again.
The bar opens at 11:30am and, through the day, is an excellent place to get a bite to eat. Such British classics as ploughman's lunch are available, plus all the usual snacks - sandwiches and toasties, jacket potatoes and pasties. Food service stops at 5pm.
There are also giant TV screens, showing sporting events, including Premier League matches on Saturdays and Sundays.
By night, the Brahms and Liszt becomes a cabaret bar (and, apparently, the price of the drinks goes up). The entertainment is compered by long-time Tenerife entertainer and radio broadcaster Dion. Performing on the island for many years, he specialises in rock 'n' roll and 50s music, with a touch of comedy thrown in. He appears every night except Tuesday and Friday.
Standing in for him on those nights is another veteran entertainer, Michael Graham, who has been on the island since the mid-1990s. An Irish recording artist, he provides music with a traditional Irish flavour, which, as you can imagine, is guaranteed to get everyone up dancing.
Cabaret begins at around 9:30pm and the bar attempts to employ only the best of Tenerife's acts. Such is the reputation and quality of the bar, many of the acts have been performing there for years - and are not planning to go anywhere else. That's quite unusual in Tenerife!
All in all, this nice, family bar is generally well recommended by customers.
