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

“Good Atmosphere, Expensive Drinks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

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.

“Good happy hour drinks - nice people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

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.

“Brooklyn IPA in Guatemala”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

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.

“Ocelot is a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Ocelot Antigua Guatemala, owned by Shaun, really cool Welsh guy always happy to help out with advice on Guatemala, awesome bar staff, best hamburgers and wings in town. 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 to make new friends easily, be they the fantastic people behind the bar, Shaun himself or others who have wandered into this great place. A place for tourists, locals and ex-pats. Do yourself a favour and go visit the Ocelot.

“The best happy hour in Antigua”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

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.
