Good Music, Have a drink after dinner before heading to danceclubs

Tequila Barrell provided a good relaxed atmosphere to sit around and have drink or two before heading elsewhere. The crowd is pretty good mix of collegeaged kids and locals. It is located just around the corner of the famous "clubstreet" where you can head dancing after your drinks.

Thank you to Juan Jose, who is the manager at Tequila Barrel and all of his staff for their honesty! I had forgotten my digital camera at the bar the night before. I called the following morning to ask if someone had seen it. They were nice enough to hold it for me and went back to get it.

Three couples sitting at roadside eating, drinking and watching the folks go by meanwhile music blares, sun shines, and smiles abound. Waitress was friendly and efficient. Food was nothing fancy but OK. Noise may be the only complaint as the speakers were set to LOUD and talking was only pursued with difficulty. However, the "buckets" of beer appeased our senses.

The drinks were good and the food was average nothing that blows your mind but a pretty decent spot. It's a nice place to sit back and relax and have a nice drink and enjoy watching people as they passed by.

Friendly staff, excellent mojitos and good music resulted in us staying a bit longer than we originally planned. Order the cheesy chips to soak up the alcohol!

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.

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

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!
