“Great place for Cuban Jazz in Cancun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

Friday is Cuban Jazz at the Roots! A cozy place in town town Cancun, with an excellent service,
perfect for a glass of wine and cheese in a cool ambiance. You are so close to the musicians, you can feel their joy to perform. Not to forget the comments of the owner, Mr. Happy. Definitely something you should not miss when you stay in Cancun. It is much fun!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2012

Your host Herbert does a fine job in this place....Some of the musicians are outstanding and festival quality...Herbert is proud of his chef and the cleanliness of the kitchen......Good staff and Ally your waitress is very attentive and always smiling.........A cosy place to relax and is like a jazz club should be...I am usually in bed by 10 pm but left this club at 3.15am ..after having so much fun...Not many dancers but we always dance and its encouraged..!!

“A hidden gem...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2012

Situated right in the heart of downtown Cancun is this open-air lovely restaurant and live music club. Over the years it has become the address to turn to for musicians from all over. While Jazz is the main musical scheme here, the owner features a Roots Rock Reggae selector session on Wednesday nites.
The food served is fresh and natural, with the menu offering a variety of international and mexican-flavored dishes. Full bar service. The ambiance is cozy and the service friendly and effective. There ain't many tourists here which is a good and a bad thing at the same time as the location actually deserves more attention for what is being offered here. A hidden gem...

“THE place to go if you don't like nightclubs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2011

Excellent world class music from different groups ranging from Jazz to Flamenco to Cuban to...
Great food and lovely ambience. Its great for all age groups, the music is first class, live often with impromptu jam sessions. Roots is downtown near Parque Las Palapas on the side street where the church is located. The area is safe and taxis and buses from the hotel zone are easy to get. The food is always fresh, good and reasonably priced. A place where you can go on your own and immediately feel as if you're in your local pub downtown, very friendly, international and if you're lucky, you may bump into some famous artists. The music starts at 10:30 on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and is not too loud so that its still possible to have a conversation. There is a small cover but its well worth it and the "in place" for local and international music lovers. Well worth visiting and guaranteed to receive a warm welcome and become included in the "Roots family" If you've been once, you will always go back... it's a must if you're in Cancun :)
