They had me at the giant vintage poster of a bull fighter that extends from the top of the bar to the ceiling, pictured. This is a colorful bar with open windows, one pool table, and plenty of booth seating that overlooks the sidewalk. The music was a mix of pop and rock (which frankly, I prefer to really loud techno or really live banda), and the drinks were cheap; like $2. There’s a little extra thought and edge here—maybe it’s the painting of the puma on the wall or the antlers above the bathrooms, or the sweet bartender from Vancover— but whatever it is, I’d bet by midnight this is a fun place to be.
Open from 6:30 pm to 4 a.m, on the corner of Madero and Vallarta in Old Vallarta.
