This is the Puerto Vallarta equivalent of Cheers. It's really just a little hole in the wall on Olas Altas - maybe seats 20 inside and another 30 or so out on the sidewalk and it is always packed. People actually show up before they open at 5 p.m. to stake out their territory and God help you if you're... More

One of the owners greeted us as we were uncertainly walking down the street. Super welcoming and inviting atmosphere. We didn't get but the drinks were nice and strong. Best couple of hours in PVR!

Apache bar and. Bistro has excellent food at very reasonable prices they should not have 4 $$$$ as a rating? I have lived here for 6 years and almost always go there for great food and 2 for drinks at happy hour.

Enjoyed a couple of happy hours here before heading home. Gotta be careful with the heavy pours as sometimes the drinks look better than they taste in the end if you don't like strong drinks. Always a good time though. Thank god for the pretzels.

Very busy cocktail hour....patrons jam the sidewalk tables to the point of being uncomfortable.strong, huge drinks guarantee that the noise level will be ear drum smashing. I may be in the minority here as its very popular, but I,m looking for a more relaxed atmosphere when I,m in Paradise. Place to see and be seen, I guess......
