Great atmosphere - Great service

Stopped off here for a few beers. Range was good, music (1980s) on the video TVs was fantastic fun and the service was great Wish I'd been around later as I guess it's a bit lively

Great service, great food, great drinks. What more could anyone want?! Very entertaining since dancing on the bar earns you a free shot of tequila. Good music.

Love this place-it's fun, it's cheap and a great place to people watch in Playa Del Carmen! The wait staff are attentive, have great suggestions and the place looks like it is a very active bar at night! We always get a drink or two there!

We stopped here while strolling fifth avenue. The prices seem reasonable, the staff was polite, but it took forever. The server took a long time.

This is one of the those places you can't go just once. Both times I ordered a blue cheese bacon burger and it was amazing! There is blue cheese inside of the patty! If you like tequila, do the tequila tasters. They give you three different shots of a certain brand for a very good price. We may or may... More

Great place to watch games, people watch and make a few bets.. Normal bar food menu. It does get crowded for big events and you need to get their early to get a table.

The margarita I ordered was sickly sweet so I switched to beer. The NBA finals were on and the commentary had to compete with loud music being piped in... More

I've looked into your case of what happened and by whom.

Lovely place on 5th avenue to drink with music going and alcohol flowing! Prices are good and the food is good quality and big pro rations for the price. Servers attentive and quick to keep you watered up.
