“You gotta stop for the band!”

Walking the streets of 5th Avenue, we heard an awesome band, stopped in for a drink and stayed for hours. Classic American Rock is not what we expected to hear, but the band was great and we had good service at a table on the street. My husband was excited to be able to smoke a cigar without hassle, but you must know...CASH ONLY!!!

We stopped at this bar on a Saturday night after being pulled in by the amazing band that was playing. The drinks were the best priced that we experienced our entire trip. After talking with one of the local patrons, we learned that the bar is owned by Saul Hernandez, the lead singer of Caifanes. He had made a rare appearance just a few days before and drew a large crowd.

Great place just to hang and enjoy the music!

Went to this place a few times during our trip and it is a must go to if you are in the Playa Del Carmen area! It is right in the heart of 5th Avenue and they always had a cover band playing rock music from the 80's, 90's and early 2000's. Each band was very good and put there own flavor into the different songs they played. The drinks were very affordable and were very good. The bartenders are friendly and are very attentive to when your drink is getting low or when trying to get there attention when you need another drink. The environment was always good with it never being empty but wasn't wall to wall people either so it was easy to get around. Definitely will go back when in the area again!

I had such a terrible hangover the next day, must have been because I mixed the cocktails! Great little venue, we saw a cover band (can’t remember who, not surprisingly) and drank reasonable prices cocktails served by friendly staff.
