BarFly's Review of Conquistador


(Formerly, Globe. Opened December 2011.)  Spawn of downtown's favorite dive, The Matador (hence its nickname, "Matador East").

Formerly soulless space has been thoroughly, and thoughtfully, transformed, into a party-happy lounge replete with sixties-era takes on old Spanish style, to campy good effect. Deep, tall black leatherette booths line the long wall leading to the small game room with pool (x1) and shuffleboard (x1).

Adorable, pinball-laden and make-out couch-outfitted loft space (the owner derisively refers to it as the 'Sniff and Diddle Room').

The cherry on top: an actual, honest to god, REAL jukebox (vintage c. 1975), that plays 45s! Bonus: It's FREE!

Caveat: Better for groups than soloists, as small bar affords only a few seats.

Spacious, smoker-friendly patio fronts the bar on the deep sidewalk.

Rotating cast of DJs featured regularly. Never a cover.

Open seven days a week, 365 days/year, 4pm-2:30am.

$2 dom pints, $3 micros, $3.25 well, $6 pitchers, menu specials, 4pm-7pm.

What You Think:

Yes, these CAPTCHAs suck, but they are a necessary evil. Typing the words you see below proves you are a human.

Before hitting that submit button, we highly suggest you read the following guidelines:

  1. Owners/Managers/Employees: Do not shill for yourself or bad mouth competitors because we WILL catch you. We have been known to "out" repeat violators. Simply identify yourself as the owner/employee/manager to address our users's complaints. Trust us, it works to do it that way. It is great PR, our users love it, we love it, and your business will love it.

    Also, please do not use the review system to update your bar's listing. Instead, fill out this form

  2. ALL CAPS does not get get your point across, but it does make you look completely stupid. The button on your keyboard is clearly labeled CapsLock. Move your pinky 5/16ths of an inch and turn it off.

  3. Mockery is cool, libel isn't. Learn the difference. Naming names in a negative or totally false review? You forfeit your right to privacy and will be named if any legal issues arise.

  4. Were you 86ed for being a complete douchebag? Are you the perpetually unsatisfied bitch? The bartender's psycho ex? Are you copy & pasting the same review from/to Yelp, Citysearch, etc? Then you undermine the value of user reviews. Don't waste your time posting.

  5. The 1st Amendment covers your right to say what ever you want and our right to delete it off our server.

  6. BarFly staff may choose to break these rules at their own discretion.

  7. Shills WILL be publicly outed. By clicking submit, you authorize us to release details about your review(s), including your IP address, email, name, and any other contact info if we feel you have abused our website.

Now, if you think your review will pass muster, click the submit button.
