We enjoyed the musicians so much we went four times. The servers took great care of us making the whole experience memorable.

This place has the most exceptional martinis I've tasted anywhere. The variety is amazing. Live music happens most every night and the super attentive staff do a fantastic job (it was quite crowded on my last visit and the servers navigated the room like professionals, never missing a beat) Next time I'll try their signature drink (the Greta Garbo).

Garbo is fun. Go for drinks, listen to music, relax. It's not difficult to find a seat. The waiters are very helpful and they will do their best to accommodate you even if you show up with 20 people... True story. The band Piel Canela is so good. Make sure stay and listen to them. It's definitely a good time.

Great gay bar in the heart of the romantic zone in Puerto Vallarta. We came here before closing with a party of 10 and there were only a few people hanging out. We were too late for any of the music shows, but the friendly staff sat us and provided great bar service. I've also been here on previous dates... More

This bar appeals to a wide age group. ( 30's to 70's. ) Good place to have a drink before or after dinner somewhere in the neighborhood. Probably about 70% GLBT. Nice quiet ambience earlier. Gets loud around 10pm with live music.

Great spot in the Centro Romantico for a superb martini. I enjoy sitting at the bar where I've always found interesting folks with whom to chat. Live music some evenings. Need to inquire about schedule.

Very nice, clean, modern piano bar venue very close to the gay beach. Nice bartenders and cocktail waiters and great drinks! It can be a bit noisy and limited seating when crowded but very casual and friendly atmosphere!
