“The Best Entertainment in Town”
Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

This is my third time going to the Palm in PV. Kim Kuzma and her live band is by far the best entertainment in town. Her voice, energy, and engagement to the audience are all fantastic in this very compact and intimate nightclub/cabaret. We tried to get tickets at 5:30 for the 7:00 show and were put on a waiting list. The guys selling the tickets were very accommodating and really follow the waiting list in the order people showed up. ( Rare honesty in Mexico). We barely got in. Show sells out quickly--- my advice is buy ahead but don't miss this fabulous show!! Have seen some other shows here like the female impersonators, (Miss Conception)she's a riot, but once is enough. Kim is a must see every year.

Thank Brucheryl

“Nice little venue”
Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

We went twice on our recent trip to PV and both times were great! Definitely worth the small price to see some talented acts. Small place but a great time to be had by all.

“Cabaret Show not to be Missed!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

The shows that make it to the stage of this Puerto Vallart entertainment institution should not be missed. Plan to be in the audience as the shows are better than first class off broadway material!
We just saw "Oy Vey In A Manger" the final Christmas show presented by the talented KINSET SICKS billed as America's favourite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet. The show filled to overflowing with snappy comedic writing and excellent singing left everyone on their feet begging for more. You can purchase tickets at the door or on line.

“SNEAKY Pay for High End Liquor and Poured Cheap”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Stopped in to a packed place, with a show in progress. I am a Bar Manager, where we serve over 200,000 patrons a year. One of my job duties is to watch employees. Well, at this place I had ordered a Graygoose Cosmo. However, When the bartending made it, he used house Vodka and added water to it, thus charging me for Graygoose. I paid said nothing over tipped and will never return. The place was packed with hundreds of Canadians and Americans (mostly Canadians). I really took my time drinking the drink, knowing I was not going to have another. The show was great and entertaining. I watched the group of guys from Alberta, Canada next to me order a go around of absolute and the bartender poured house, Fleischmanns. I know after a couple drinks people loose inhibitions, but to take advantage of tourists that support and patronize your business is dishonest. This must be coming from the owner. I WILL NEVER RETURN TO THIS. BEWARE!!!!

Tracy P, Manager at The Palm Cabaret and Bar, responded to this review, January 13, 2013
Thank you for writing about your experience at The Palm. As the show director, I am always concerned about our clients experience and want to make sure everyone has a good time at The Palm. I would have loved to know of your concern the night of the show. I am always at the front door, usually with our co-director Mark. Our wonderful manage, Manuel, will also take care of your concerns and correct any errors. While we do not own the bar, we do try to intervene where we can to make sure everyone has a great time and good experience. We would have done the same for you, had you given us the chance. I am glad you enjoyed the show and thank you for saying so. I am confused by how you saw the bartender pour you a vodka we don't serve. He is in a service bar in the back of the bar, behind a curtain and not visible to the audience, near the dressing rooms (to keep noise to a minimum). There is a bar at the top of the stairs near the entrance but it is rarely used, except when we are super busy and then only to serve the guests on the patio and upper area. We do not use the brand of vodka you say your received. We serve only Smirnoff (house) or Grey Goose (call). If you would like to come back and give us another shot at making you happy, I promise to buy you a drink and make sure you leave happy. We are very sorry to recieve your review and hope we can make it up to you.
