Kitxen without a Kitchen

Yep, Kitxen does not have a kitchen. The only 'food' on offer is free popcorn or nuts. However, food is not why you stop by. The music is very varied but generally good to... read more

Holy cow this was an expensive stop on our walk. The music brought us to the bar stools, but the drink taste and the drink prices sent us walking after the first round. My strawberry margarita lacked taste so badly, that I cashed out before getting my 2 for 1!! The bartenders were nice, but next time, we'll keep walking!

just came back from my fifth night in a row at this bar. The music is fantastic, and a whole lot of fun, but what brought me back Night after night was the bartenders. They are the absolute best, especially the "tall bald guy" who other reviews are putting down. What they are saying is absolute garbage. He is the... More

I went to Playa in 2012 and fell in love with this place! We stayed one evening drinking the best mojitos ever, people watching, and listening to live bands. So wonderful! We went back this month, and it was not as enchanting. Still a cool vibe and good people watching, but I think the prices went up and the drinks... More

We like British ales, and Ocho Reales brewed in Monterrey is the closest to our taste. Kitxen serves Ocho Reales, along with other ales and beers. The cool T-shirt wearing staff is very friendly. Live music with nice covers of famous rock anthems starts at 9:15 pm, so if you want a table, be there at 8:30ish.

I won't return. The service is very rude. Their tall bald waiter is rude and over charges. The bar tender is decent to your face but after I took care of the issue with him and tipped $50 after his az hole server tried ripping us off he sent out the second of a two-or-one margarita with straight mixer. There... More

This place could be good if they fired the tall bald server. Music was good. Drinks reasonable. Service was b-r-u-t-a-l. First drinks were brought to us and then it was like pulling teeth to get our server to come over to take our drink order. we weren't ordering very two seconds we were leisurely having drinks and every time we...
