El Pobre Diablo - Restaurant Quito - Ecuador

El Pobre Diablo is a well-decorated jazz bar, popular with artsy intellectuals and local bohemian types. Live music lights the place up most Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, with jazz and soft Cuban beats on other nights. Its food is pricier than local norms, but dishes are decent and the atmosphere more than makes up for the extra cents. You can order a portion of fried yucca, empanadas, or a meat-and-cheese plate to pick at as you drink and enjoy the music, or a full-on main course. It also has a set lunch menu on weekdays, which includes a soup, entree with a side, dessert and juice. When there is a live show, there is usually a cover of $6.50-8. Drinks are also very expensive here, especially compared to other Quito bars.
