The Indian Head is one of those bars I’ve walked past many times and never ventured inside! When it comes to bars Gran Canaria offers a fair bit of variety and this bar looked a bit different from the outside. It was totally different on the inside too – few bars here have red carpeted walls, American Indian photos all over the place and sculptures of American Indian heads! I visited with my partner Mike and we decided to have a drink there, despite Sitting Bull and Custer frowning down at us from a huge painting.
After getting our drinks, we decided to sit at the bar but soon began to see a lot of cockroaches crawling around! I also spotted a mouse dart inside across to the stage! The toilets are labelled as “squaws” and “braves” (possibly confusing to the current Scandinavian clientele) and they were very clean.
I left the “squaws” and went back to the bar area where the air had become decidedly frosty. The previously friendly barmaid deposited our un-asked for bill in front of us and Mike explained that he had asked the barmaid how come there were so many cockroaches in the bar!! That question obviously went down like the Titanic.
The prices were reasonable, the bar is interesting and there is live music from 10:30pm every night. If you are going to be in Gran Canaria at Christmas, you might want to try this bar for a change. The Indian Head is located on the first floor of the Puerto Rico Commercial Centre so if you fancy a different kind of night and the company of older people (and you don’t mind small wildlife) pop along for a drink. But don’t mention the roaches.
