Cold drinks; very cold drinks indeed and good imported gin. From time to time, there is live music, but you're always sure for a very good time. Carlos and Joa are always ready to give you some very nice hours in their lovely company. If you go there in the afternoon, you have to be prepared to eat late, as... More

In looking at reviews for live music in Zihua I ran across The Flophouse Bar & put it on my to do list. Went to town to find this place (which was hard to do even with the very helpful people we met along the way), just kept walking down Ejido until we spotted it on a corner. There we... More

Stopped in yesterday afternoon while walking around Centro. Had a couple of nice cold beers and some good conversation. The bar is open and airy with a very comfortable feel to it. Carlos the bartender was super friendly and the prices didn't break the wallet. All in all, well worth stopping at for a cold one (or two, or three,... More

This little bar punches well above its weight. Carlos, the bartender is super friendly and an excellent conversationalist. If you're not sitting at the bar, you are missing out. Even so, the crowd is always friendly and in a good mood. The place is open on two sides, and really light and airy feeling. Live music almost any evening, with... More

The flophouse is really a great little bar. Really cold beer, good cocktails, an interesting and friendly crowd. Carlos the owner is a fountain of knowledge and has great music. Lots of good live music pretty much everyday as well. A terrific find in Zihuatanejo.

Was there last night for drinks and music with my wife. Had to be after dinner as they do not serve food. However, guests are free to bring their own food or can call to have it delivered there. Nice tiny place to relax & enjoy super cold beers, wine or cocktails. Beers are kept cold with koozies. Owners (bartender... More

Stopped on a whim. Great Piña Coladas. Very friendly and informative owner/bartender. Talked about Tequila and the different types. Best stop we made.
