Great live bands and open to the street bar.

One of the best places to hang on 5th for almost three years. Consistently good. Excellent local micro brews, cocktails and really well sourced bands. A totally talented place.

I love anywhere I can get a daiquiri and they don't try to force me into a damn fruit in it. Lime daiquiris all the way. 2 for 1 cocktails apparently til 7, but think we got them much later than that. Live music always makes us happy !

Had a blast every night we were here. Love the array of bands they have playing. Servers were amazing and remembered what my friend and I had from the night before. Will definitely be back!

Very nice place, friendly bartenders, good live music. Great place for having some evening drinks with friends. Place is not very big, and they don't have kitchen, but if you just about to have some drinks in good atmosphere, this will be the right choice.

Staff are awesome - engaging and quick, music is very entertaining - this is a happening place for drinks, socializing and music - no kitchen here - parden the pun - popcorn and peanuts are all you will be offered... not known for the food, but the trendy place to be for a good variety of music, drinks and atmosphere!...

We partied here with some local friends one evening. This is an excellent location on Quinta Avenida. The band was very much entertaining and the overall atmosphere was great! Kitxen (pronounced kitchen) is slang for “love of things middle class." A celebration of the accessible. This bar is located in the heart of Playa del Carmen, right on 5th Avenue.... More
