Bar review: Tepee Rock Bar and Grill, Limassol
By Christiana Ioannou Published on February 7, 2010
In a society where image is so important even bars are subject to passing trends. For a bar to survive through time and people’s frequent changes in appetite is definitely an achievement. Tepee Rock Bar and Grill in Limassol has successfully done exactly that. Probably the oldest rock bar in town, it still remains a popular hangout for rock fans all over Cyprus as well as for those who just want to enjoy a pint of beer in a casual environment.
Located in the popular Yermasoyia tourist area, Tepee unquestionably catches the eye of everyone passing by. The exterior as well as the interior of the bar proudly reflect the name. Inspired by Native American culture, Tepee reminds of a classic American saloon in the west. Its interior design keeps the eye busy even though critics could describe it as over packed with junk, as empty bottles of Jack Daniels abound. There are American Indians hanging from the walls, as well as motorbikes and a wagon wheel has been used to suspend central lights from.
Tepee’s main attraction is the plethora of music acts. Popular domestic rock bands such as the amazing Sulphur, Greek artists including Vasilis Papakonstantinou and international band Katatonia have performed there. On Fridays one can be carried along in a world of old and contemporary rock by the Cypriot rock band Lock Stock. However if you’re not really an English rock music fan, every Wednesday is Greek Rock night. Even on days when there are no booked acts, Tepee doesn’t disappoint and offers a hard rock night with a house DJ. Every rock music taste is satisfied.
Even if you’re not into rock music at all it is still possible to enjoy a night out with friends sipping on a cold pint of beer or one of Tepee’s excellent cocktails, playing a game of pool or just people watching and socialising on the quiet part of the bar on the balcony.
What is also soothing about this bar is its non-pretentious crowd. There anyone can be anyone. Tepee’s regulars include artists, lawyers, accountants, students, teachers, construction workers or businessmen. The crowd is friendly, communicative and interesting. If you want to meet new people Tepee is the place to go.
Tepee offers competitive prices on drinks and food – in the same venue you can enjoy a delicious Mexican dish, drinks and live music. Moreover since it is built on a main road it is easily accessible and there is a parking lot just next door.
