This is a good place to hang out. Music is fun and the service is good. Food is also good. If you want a more local experience then go 2 blocks off the Malecon and visit this place.

Zapata is a beautiful bar restaurant in the Romantic Zone. Food and music are great. Craft beer made in Mexico available. Try the Puerto Vallarta beer by the El Terrible Brewing Co.
