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

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...

This is a fantastic bar with great drinks and awsome service. The boys that work there are fabulous and totally knew us after the first night. We were in PDC for 15 nights and went there every night after dinner because they don't serve food. They have 2x1 cocktails from 4 to 7 pm, be careful cuz sometimes the sign... More

The best part of this little bar is the drinks, (particularly the mescal drinks with cucumber and chili, my favorite!) and the staff. The staff is incredibly fun and friendly. When I first moved to Playa, this was ome of thr first places where the staff embraced me as a local and were helpful with tips and tricks. Since then,... More

Cheap beer. Fantastic local bands (no cover, too). Friendly staff. What more do you need? Whenever we are in PDC we stop here every night. It's that good. Even got to see a fantastic impromptu guitar solo on the street in front of Kitxen last time we were there,. Wish I lived in PDC...this would be my "Cheers" if I... More
