“My Kind of Place!”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

I have to say that this was the LAST kind of bar I expected to find in Isla....and I am SO happy I did. Romina & Paolo made me so happy and welcome (even without the beer). We had so much fun playing Siouxsie & The Banshees, The Cure, Killing Joke, etc. all night. Everybody is welcome but you will feel most at home if your music tastes are not the USA top 40. I can't wait to see them again in October 2012. This really has become my 'night' spot on the island. Great people, drinks and music. Just GO!

“Favorite place to be when not in the water”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We just loved hanging out with Romina and Paul, enjoying drinks, awesome music, and some really cool stories about how they followed The Cure. They even give you a shot when you sit down and put a karaoke microphone in your hand when they can tell you want to wail your own version of Glycerine. Definitively one of the things we miss most about Isla. If you make it out there be sure to stop by. It's right on the "main" road, Hidalgo Street, where all the action is.

Special place, run by awesome people. Great, welcoming place to meet folks from around the island, and also the world. Best jukebox south of New Orleans.

“Always a great time! Great Music, drinks and Hosts!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

If you are looking for a great new alternative for something to do at night on Isla Mujeres, then check out Rock Bar for sure! A small bar with a BIG heart and love for music! The bartender pours some great drinks while DJing your favorite rock tunes (and takes requests!) while drinks are brought to your table outside on Hidalgo or right at the bar! Perfect place for a group of friends to meet up, sing songs (yes, you can sing on the mic there) and have a great evening while getting some good people watching in right in the heart of Isla Mujeres!
