Caitan 'n' Joe Bar, Dona Paula
Cocktails, mocktails and wines feature high on the list of spirits served at this relaxed drinking hole. Open from 7 pm to 11 pm, patrons enjoy soothing music as they imbibe the drink of their choice and admire the murals by local artist Osborne Carvalho narrating the story of friends Caitan and Joe. On their way to work, the two fictitious characters are distracted by the little tavern, where they stop for a drink. They begin enjoying the company of friends and strangers passing through the area and one drink leads to another, and another... Soon it is time for the two to leave for home, which is illustrated in the final mural.
