Relocated eating place has Herman Hesse motif

A well-known eating and drinking place, characterized as urban-bohemian, has relocated in downtown San José after being ousted by construction of a new legislative building.

The business is the Restaurante y Bar El Lobo Estepario, which promoters say now has a space much larger and more attractive.

The bar has been a gathering place for the art crowd and those, as the bohemian title implies, who follow an alternative lifestyle.

The new location is on Avenida 2 at Calle 13. The location has two floors and capacity for 200 persons, an announcement said.

Those sought as customers are the young adults and the not-so-young adults and art lovers. The operators are Dennis Ávila and Paola Valverde. The name of the facility comes from a novel by Hermann Hesse, “Steppenwolf,” or wolf of the steppes.

Several well known artists participated in the interior decorations consistent with the character in the Hesse novel, said the announcement.

The first floor contains a permanent display of faces of prominent poets, and the second floor has space for a small theater.
