Description: The Ocelot Bar. Its so close to the Parque Central. 32 Seconds walk actually so its very safe and we know all of the good taxi drivers who won't assault or attack you. We love our 5pm till 8pm happy hour everyday and we have the famous burgers & Wings from Lava Terrace Bar & Burgers upstairs. Live music at least 3 times a week. Cocktails & Microbrew beer. The bar owned by Welshman Shaun always attracts its fair share of Guatemaltecos. Shaun kicked out all the sloppy Gringo drunks that used to frequent the place in the early years and its now a really pleasant place to come and listen to great music and meet great people and have a good drink

Every sunday around 8:00 p.m. they have a Pub Quiz, it´s really fun, you pay Q20 per team to play and they have all kinds of categories and questions, art, geography, music, history, etc. REALLY FUN!

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, a quiz every Sunday and live music on certain other days (seen some great performers such as Mercedes and Grace & Bobby Darling). Cheap happy hour (13Q for many local beers and spirits), most other days have some sort of 2x1 special going, so if you're a wine drinker, mojito drinker or whatever, you can find... More

I visited last week with friends. I'm glad we took the time to find Ocelot. Our timing was perfect and we arrived during happy hour. Great bargain and very friendly bar staff. Great atmosphere and great music.

This is a quaint little bar, cozy, with great service. However it's a bit more expensive than it should be. Sunday night Trivia is fun, so come for that and then move on elsewhere for your drinking needs. Very basic food menu that i can;t really recommend.

Nice spot for a drink or 2... kind of cavernous. They are related to the lava bar upstairs- have good wings (although one out of 5 times we had them they were terrible... calling it an off day for this spot, that's all!) - good happy hour prices and average prices otherwise. They have music and a nice expat crowd.

We had some great burgers and a couple of Brooklyn IPAs at Ocelot. After weeks of flavorless Brahva and Gallo, it was really nice to find a bar with an IPA.

Terrific hangout place and if you go on a Wednesday or thursday night you'll get the bonus of fantastic live music, why these people aren't recording I will never know. A place... More

This place has a lovely atmosphere, usually with decent music in the background as well. Between 5pm and 6pm there is a great happy hour, and surprisingly it's almost always very quiet as well. A lot of happy hours in Antigua aren't exactly cheap, but this place really is. Fast and friendly service.

Cute, relaxed little bar for a drink and there is a food menu. We didnt have anything to eat here, just a rum and a ocelot cocktail (their house special). Both were good. Great service from the Aussie bar staff and guessing by the large Welsh flag and writing this is a favourite with expats. Good little bar to begin... More
