Description: The Ocelot Bar. Its so close to the Parque Central. 32 Seconds walk actually so its very safe and we know all of the good taxi drivers who won't assault or attack you. We love our 5pm till 8pm happy hour everyday and we have the famous burgers & Wings from Lava Terrace Bar & Burgers upstairs. Live music at least 3 times a week. Cocktails & Microbrew beer. The bar owned by Welshman Shaun always attracts its fair share of Guatemaltecos. Shaun kicked out all the sloppy Gringo drunks that used to frequent the place in the early years and its now a really pleasant place to come and listen to great music and meet great people and have a good drink

Ocelot has been one of my favourites bars in town, friendly staff, really chill atmosphere, live music and Sunday pub quiz Its so much fun. Plus the variety of drinks and cocktails is one of the best in town.

We turned up just as the happy hour began and so we stocked up on 2 for 1 drinks. We also ate and found the food to be good including a veggie option.

So I left this place with a super bad vibe. The live music was fantastic (Mercedes - local Guatemalan acoustic, it blows my mind she hasn't been scooped up yet and signed) and the atmosphere was chill, but the guy hit me for Q200 for a couple of Jameson, pouring without mentioning that he's going to be charging more than my 2 person private bathroom suite that night for two bloody run of the mill whiskeys. C'mon pal, did I just buy you and your gal dinner or did you charge me for the 25 year single malt? Something shifty going on here...

Please, do me a favour and avenge my dissatisfaction. There are plenty of chill places to go in Antigua, don't go to the Ocelot (unless Mercedes is playing...then go, but don't buy any drinks ;) )

You got overcharged Q110.00 according to your prices and I now i have to decide do I fire the bartender and we only had one working that night so I know who the person is or do I judge this reveiw to be a fake. Are you a rival bar owner????? Now i was there all night on Thursday and yes I agree with you that Mercedes is amazing and she plays the Ocelot every Thursday 8.30pm but if you'd complained at the time instead of running to your hotel to use your laptop then we could have sorted the whole thing out there and then. I'm sorry this is an unfair review because you got overcharged and you didn't complain to the management at the time. p.s. I'm giving the bartender the benefit of the doubt

Ok, I could not get this burger craving out of my system. So I tried once more and happened upon Ocelot! I have been there many times for Happy Hour but never ate. I ate the regular burger and fries. It tasted exactly like my dad's grilled hamburger. The burger is huge and the fries are a small portion. The food was served hot. For me it was a homerun and hit the spot. The terrace was amazing in the daytime.
The only thing I did not like was the service. It was so super slow. I had to get the attention of the waiters several times.
