“Fun place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Great bar in a great location on 5th avenue. Didn't watch a game there but can imagine the atmosphere is great. Drinks are slightly on the expensive side but not too bad. Service during the day was great and we really enjoyed the jalapeño poppers and chicken tequila fajitas. Service in the night felt more pushy and you are definitely given 'the look' if you don't tip (witnessed a waitress running and checking the tip wallet and then pulling a face and muttering when there was nothing in it). We tipped as we felt it worthy but don't think you should feel like you absolutely have to. Was also told during the night that the promotions on the signs weren't what they actually said. For example something flashed up saying ladies open bar on a specific day between selected hours and when I asked what this was they said it was actually 'one' free drink if you come in and eat (not quite the same).

Overall this is a great fun bar with good music and a fun holiday atmosphere and we enjoyed our time there whilst in Playa, just make sure you have a tip ready and that you don't take the promotions as gospel.
