Live music upscale and no club kids

I'm 42. Older but certainly not dead. I like to go out and have fun with my friends and avoid 12th avenue at all costs. This is my favorite bar to do just that! Great service, always awesome live music, ample seating and drink specials. This could be a nice bar for a romantic date night or a great... read more

Quickly looked online for a close by bar that could satisfy our post travel itch and cure a day of packing and bus rides. Sala Rosa had some rave reviews and realised it was about 50 metres from our hotel so decided to check it out. It was early evening and the crowds were still not out but the lack... More

A friend had recommended we visit this bar during our stay in Playa del Carmen and we are so glad we did. We arrived at the bar on Friday around 9:30 pm and the atmosphere was perfect. They had an entertainer singing and the vibes were so positive. Staff were very happy and made us feel like family. Their English... More

This is probably my best (so far) dinner in Playa del Carmen. Only a few blocks from our vacation condo... and owned by 2 Quebec (Canada) sisters. How can i explain how good those tapas we're? Well first of all, i must say that i am a big fan of tapas. So it is quite easy for me to make... More

We return year after year and the quality of the food, beverages, staff remains the same. Perfect! Very cosy, friendly, quality drinks and tapas. we often order 3 tapas and can never finish what we ordered but always do because they are yummy and tasty. Stay off the Main Street which tends to be pricey and okay. Sala Rosa is... More

We tend to stroll in this direction on Mondays to usually find many places closed like Sala Rosa. Luckily we managed to get there before Monday hits this time, and were positively surprised. It really is as good as its reputation: excellent service, food quality & quantity and ambience. Not even 400M$ we paid for a jar of Sangria (second... More

I've only just left the place but felt I had to review immediately. Outstanding doesn't do it justice. So reasonably priced and top top quality too. Grilled cheese, chorizo, pulled pork and fish cakes plus a few beers was a touch over 400 pesos! And honestly there was too much for the two of us, but felt we had to... More

La Sala Rosa is a terrific alternative to the creepy banality of touristy Playa. Real people, good booze (with a smart emphasis on delicious Mezcal!), good food, and a tranquil vibe. There's a reason why this place has a loyal clientele of locals and expats. Worth your attention.

My girl friend and I found Sala Rosa one night during our stay and automatically fell in love. The music they were playing, the food and drinks they served, and the overall atmosphere was the best treatment we found in Playa! Free spirited place to say the least :)

We stumbled upon Sala Rosa when our first choice eatery of the evening was closed. Wow, are we glad we did! We were promptly seated on an attractive outdoor patio. The waiter quickly took our drinks order and despite the intriguing wine choices, we opted for a Mojito and a Margarita. Both were superb and as I recall very reasonably... More
