I used to go often, well located! 3 floors, first barfloor, 2nd with air conditioned and 3rd is a terrace half-opened where they use to jam tech-house / techno !! Quite nice relaxed vibe, not much fency! Building is nice, for elettronic music followers the music is average nothing special.. Of course years behind europe, but it doesn t matter... More

The music... More

I have to say first "it is not everyone's cup of tea" but if you like a cool party after 2 pm in Playa del Carmen it is the place to be. They don't have all ways the best DJs but they give a chance to locals to preform there music. Check it out and you will love or hate... More

This venue was a little hot but hey it's MExico and great for techno, tech house and house music! Gave off a great vibe! Bouncers were cool and the bar was fairly priced!

Everybody raves about this place, I didn't! No special whatsoever. Expensive like hell and they make you wait until you "deserve" to be inside and inside is lame, the service sucks and even bartenders are irritated by the waiters who are unable to order a drink correctly. Once again, waiters charge whatever they see fit so it is better to... More

The setup is pretty cool in that they have a club, a terrace, and a lounge. However, this place was highly unorganized when they were busy. Drink prices were OK and the atmosphere was Ok as well but I just dont think it was as put together as it should be for a unique set up.
