One thing I've learned in travelling to different places is that names can often be deceiving.
Case in point:
|The Red Monkey - Old San Juan|
Señor Frog's - For some reason, this place is popular with tourists. In reality it's a dive bar with corporate (read, weak) drinks and sub-par food. Too much noise as well. (although the DJ was good)
|Casino de Madrid|
Texas Embassy - Bad Tex-Mex, watered down Margaritas and a staff that's too damn London cool to care. If you're visiting London and you're from Texas you might stop by and take a picture or two, but pass on eating there. It's better not to.
I think the key, in most cases, is to stay away from places with names that are too cute, too obvious. There's too much to see out in the world that doesn't involve a monkey in a martini glass, make sure you don't miss it.
