We went to la negrita two nights while we were in merida. From the outside it doesnt look special. But it is. Live music, salsa dancing, beer and bites. Really cool experience. The waiter Renan is doing a great job.

We spent all our evenings in Merida in this bar. The live music was excellent. We even ended up dancing even though it’s is not necessarily our cup of coffee. Their prices are quite reasonable. We only ate veggie food and they were all delicious....More

Tried to get in several times for dinner but the wait was always long. Ended up stopping in for afternoon giant margaritas. There's a reason this place is so popular...lively music, delicious drinks and a festive atmosphere. Will definitely try again for dinner.

We were here three times and every time it was packed and had live latin music. The drinks are great and cheap and the snacks are tasty also. The only problem is that it is only open until 10 pm.

Obviously a favourite place for the locals. So many wonderfully happy groups of people there. The live music was fun, lots of singing along. Fantastic margaritas and mojitos. Super friendly staff. Reasonably priced. If you are just sitting having drinks, the staff constantly brings out...More

I went here with my partner based on a recommendation of a friend. The place has live music, good food and drinks - all the makings for a great evening. Unfortunately we were seated behind a person whom from the moment we sat down began...More
