Fun local bar right in the middle of downtown Playa del Carmen. James the bartender makes you feel welcome and does a great job with the small space that he has. Enjoyed meeting him and looking forward to visiting again.

The crew at the roof bar are great. Angel, Juan and the others provide a fun, attentive and friendly daytime experience. The drinks are delicious and reasonably priced, the food rivals the best gourmet restaurants and the pool and view that go along with it...More
