El Gran Escape


The building El Gran Escape Bar and Restaurant has a long and storied history since it was built in the 1950’s. It’s prior lives include that of a Brothel, Social Security office and also the former location of the Cerveceria of Beer Distribution, and then finally becoming El Gran Escape!

In 1981 it was a much smaller restaurant than how we know it today, with a bar and a modest fisherman’s menu of typical Costa Rican fare. In 1991, previous owner, originally from Chico, California, spoke to the owner and decided to take over El Gran Escape.
