After walking the streets and putting my head at the number of nightclubs all over the Zona Romantica I decided to stay at Garbos for a while. The place was almost empty at the beginning but it started filling up after 10pm. At 10:30 the sax player started his pleasant performance. It is a clean and slightly upscale place compared... More

This gem is a real comfortable place. Music, conversation and A/C..staff is friendly. The prices are competetive. The decor is a salute to art deco/modernist. Comfortable seating Really a nice bar. I like this place.

This is the best place in Puerto Vallarta to meet old friends and to make new ones. The drinks are good, the music is relaxing, the crowd is friendly.
