“Friendly Staff and Great Martinis!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Recently visited Puerto Vallarta from LA and this is one of my favorite little bars in town. The owner and staff couldn't be more friendly, always offering friendly chatter. The setup is very cosy with couches outside and flat screen TV playing music videos. The best part is meeting other people while you sip on a great martini. It's setup so that you can't but help get to know your neighbor. Found some nice new friends here from all over the world. Great place!

“Great martinis, friendly service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Happy hour is 5 to 7:30 and martinis are only 45 pesos.
Leonardo is the charming (and hunky!) manager. Great outdoor patio - you can watch the beach goers passing by. Great music. My favorite place to enjoy a drink in PV.

“Great people watching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

Terrific little outdoor gay martini lounge with sofas, dance music, stylish men and the occasional drag queens. Reminded me of being home in Minneapolis! Seriously, this is a great place to hang out right next to The Palm which has terrific shows for very reasonable prices. Everyone either hangs out here or eventually walks by. Get a perch, order your drink and toast your good fortune to be in Puerto Vallarta.

“Fun Outdoor Cocktail Lounge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Sama is a great little place to enjoy cocktails with friends while sitting outside people watching on Olas Atlas. Where else but Puerto Vallarta can you find an outdoor gay martini lounge complete with sofas, dance music and great drinks? Certainly not in Minnesota!
