This would be the only Welsh bar I have visited but as bar it is a hip friendly place to grab a drink with friends. Sean the owner is welcoming and provides great service. The best part are the murals filling the place with life and entertainment.

This is the place to meet the expats as well as travelers. The owner is Welch and does a great job and you can order food from the restaurant and bar in the same building, Lava.

I stayed at the D'Leyenda Hotel next door and as I was going out for dinner saw The Ocelot bar and decided to stop by for a pre dinner drink. The owner, bartender, and patrons were friendly. After dinner I decided... More

Never a dull moment or a bad song playing at the Ocelot. The staff is fun, the vibe is laid back. A nice mix between ex-pats, tourists, and locals. Good to bring a larger group or just a couple of friends. Cheap drinks, great atmosphere...and I LOVE their coca-cola wings!

John, our bartender, was really great. He is a fun guy to chat with, and he does a great job bartending. They also have pub trivia, and some great live music. Check it out!!!

Not the cheapest but there were an equal no. of ladies to men. The only problem was the owner - although British, he's from Wales and you know what everybody says about Welshmen! Seriously, you will always find a welcome at this establishment & you can food sent down from Lava.

The Ocelot is a great little pub with paintings of regulars on the wall. We had drinks and it was a fun time with great atmosphere.

The regulars have not been on the Wall for about three years. It is a great bar to come with friends though. Cheers More

This is a welsh bar. It is smokey and delicious. A deep throated guitarist was cranking out sweet tunes in the corner and we drank beers and cocktails and had a wonderful time. Everyone mingled and was happy.

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
