It is not the only stand up pub in Montevideo, but it is certainly the first one and the only one that offers weekly shows with all sorts of performers, from very amateur to well known comedians. I would recommend to call and make reservations for your party, so you get a good table, even though you can see well... More

This bar is fantastic. The staff made us feel very welcome and spoke reasonable English. Really liked the menu and both the food and the drinks were very generous. The staff make this a very fun place to be, perfect for a young crowd.

In the boring bar scene of Montevideo Mess Bar offers a fresh breeze.. Located in a lively neighborhood the atmosphere is far from Ciudad Vieja's chain bars. A great way to get to know to the local bar scene without feeling like an outsider.

It's not so easy to find a cool lively bar in Montevideo, but the Mess Bar seduced me straight away! There was a happy party ambient, and the bartenders are friendly and... just great!

If you're coming from Buenos Aires you will notice Montevideo is a much smaller city, consequently with many less places to go out to... The city's population is small and if you don't know where to go you can end up in an empty bar or whole neighborhood with no night activity! Stay away from the "Ciudad Vieja", the places... More
