Description: Amazing Restaurant Bar near the beach like going down to Mamitas. You will find the best food and amazing drinks at the right price. The service is very personal and amazing. You will be able to mingle with locals and tourists. Playing all kinds of music with a live DJ and in the evenings and special events. The best of nightlife in bar in Playa del Carmen near the beach going down to Mamitas! Grab your inexpensive drinks and food before going to Mamitas Beach and on your way back. Avoid all the overpriced places at the beach and enjoy amazing drinks and great lunch or dining.

“Huge drinks and great shrimp tacos!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Stopped here for lunch and had some micheladas and shrimp tacos. I was hooked on the green salsa and chips. The micheladas were huge and had a tamarindo stick, which made it even better!! Shrimp tacos are kind of small, but so flavorful. My husband had fish ceviche and it was delicious as well. They were playing cool music and the vibe was great. This is a small joint, nothing fancy. It wasn't expensive either. So glad we stopped here for some awesome drinks and good food. We had a great time, totally recommend it.

“Great little locals bar w/HUGE drinks & great cheap eats.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Best habanero salsa hands down. It's a flavorful hot not a singe your mouth hot. The guacamole w/shrimps was delicious and hand made & a cheap! The cocktails come in 1litre mugs! You'll soon know why it's called the Hangover Bar. Staff knows plenty of English to guide you if you aren't comfortable w/your Spanish. It's a great spot to get away from the expensive 5th avenue tourist traps.

“What are people thinking?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

Went here on purpose based on TA reviews. Wow...what a disappointment. Terrible service and the single worst Margerita I have ever tasted...actually the worst cocktail of any sort I have ever been served. We couldn't get out of there quickly enough. The only positive was the street side guy working to hook people into the place. Genuinely pleasant.
