Restaurant details

Description: *Pukka is already a big brand name when it comes to accommodations, restaurants & bar in El Nido, Palawan Philippines. *Pukka Beach Bar Main has been in the long run for almost a decade as the best reggae bar and late night party getaway. *and if you're in to a more chillax lunch afternoon you can visit our shop located in Ayala Lio Estate, Pukka Beach Lio. Ambiance, food, relaxation and acoustic live music is the main attraction here which is far from the party life of the main Pukka Bar. *Pukka Beach is the addition to the raging Pukka Empire and describes as a flashpacker accommodation with a Miami beach inspired design. A Boutique Hotel with its own expression of ideas and stories detailed in each rooms.

Weird clubby vibe inside with awful lights and mardy bar staff. A few signs that were anti lgbt which just made us leave ASAP. Do better

The place is quite lively, the cocktails are yummy but you can hardly feel alcohol in them. The bar’s ambiance is cool especially if you’re a Rasta fan. There’s also live music, dance floor and exit to the beach.

To summarize: prostitutes and ladyboys... some of them are quite pretty so caution is advised. So if you're a drunk macho you might end up with a little surprise ;) Most of them are looking to hook up with foreigners... Sad it's considered to be the most popular bar in town. Must admit it has some ambiance if you like reggae... Service is average

This is the best bar for fun and adventures, be careful of the ladyboys. It’s a great place to party out the night which closes around 3 am. Many locals and westerners a like visit this bar with good music and plenty of dancing.

Some westerners do get too carried away drunk and cause some issues from time to time but it’s a great night out with the right attitude.
