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 is a must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

Ocelot Antigua Guatemala, owned by Shaun, really cool Welsh guy always happy to help out with advice on Guatemala, awesome bar staff, best hamburgers and wings in town. Terrific hangout place and if you go on a Wednesday or thursday night you'll get the bonus of fantastic live music, why these people aren't recording I will never know.
A place to make new friends easily, be they the fantastic people behind the bar, Shaun himself or others who have wandered into this great place. A place for tourists, locals and ex-pats. Do yourself a favour and go visit the Ocelot.

“The best happy hour in Antigua”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

This place has a lovely atmosphere, usually with decent music in the background as well. Between 5pm and 6pm there is a great happy hour, and surprisingly it's almost always very quiet as well. A lot of happy hours in Antigua aren't exactly cheap, but this place really is.
Fast and friendly service.

“Great atmosphere for a drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

Cute, relaxed little bar for a drink and there is a food menu.

We didnt have anything to eat here, just a rum and a ocelot cocktail (their house special). Both were good.

Great service from the Aussie bar staff and guessing by the large Welsh flag and writing this is a favourite with expats.

Good little bar to begin or end the night drinking!

“Great bar with a relaxing atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

The Ocelot is a bar where you can go, sit down, and strike up a friendly conversation with someone next to you. The atmosphere is low key and the staff are friendly and talkative. The owner is a great guy as well. I also enjoy the pub quizzes here. They do share a kitchen with Lava so the food is great as well.
