This bar has the best drinks I've ever had. They are made with fresh ingredients right in front of you. I watched the bartended crush the mint for my mojito right in front of me, and the mango he used for my daquerie was also cut up right in front of me. Delicious drinks for a reasonable price. Also, the... More

Not only did this place go through the typical chopping with a machete but when asked to get the coconut meat for us, the bartender put a LOT of work into getting us every last piece of coconut possible. We tipped him $8 on a $3 coconut and... More

I absolutely adore this place! A local friend told us last year about his amazing mojitos, so we decided to try it. While he was making them, he gave us a sample of his Coco Loco with 3 rums, fresh coconut water & lime, which he explained was his mother's recipe. Wow! I am hooked!! Every time we're back on...
