It was okay until a fight kicked off. I almost got flung of my chair, broken bottles etc. Seemly a regular occurrence, as some local a week later said I was brave going to it. Haven't been back since.

I really enjoy this bar and come here every time I am in Sayulita. I really enjoy the live bands that play and the fact that there are 2 stories to this bar so you have some room to move around. I would recommend this...place if you are looking for some live music to enjoy.More

We walked in on Saturday night maybe around 11pm. Just as we were walking in a jazz band started to play live music. If you just flinched at the word jazz, take it back! We're talking about creative, improvisational jazz where the musicians and everyone...in the bar is compelled to tap their feet, shake their heads, and move their body in time to the music! Music that fills your soul with life! I was in a terrible mood when we had walked in... on the heels of the Golden State Warriors Game 1 NBA Finals Loss... and the music forced me out of my funk. Within 10 minutes, I was dancing. When the band went on break, the DJ took over musical duties. He was FANTASTIC as well! Perfect music! Perfect night! Love how full of life Sayulita is, even at night. It feels like people go there to really live.More

I was with my cousins, the 3 of us are all females ranging in age from 25-30’s. We had never been to Sayulita, and we hadn’t done much research, we were trying a new method of just talking to locals. The first gentleman we met...was Hiram, who is the doorman at Don Pato’s. We are SO grateful we did, this was are go to spot nearly every night. They always have live music and a friendly crowd, the staff was AMAZING. Plus we played a little fuseball. Great spot, and you can get plenty of great IG pics in here with their cheeky wall art. Be sure to stop next door at Monchi’s and grab a taco from El Ivan... and give our friend Hiram a high five :)More

Happened upon this restaurant while in town for the day. Fantastic chicken nachos with delicious sauces - these are all about flavor over quantity. Lunch : enchiladas and a burrito. All were top notch. Margaritas were great and don’t leave without trying a Piedra Lisa...IPA from Colima. Take your time, enjoy the neighborhood dogs and have a terrific meal. One fewer thing to worry about!More

We stopped in for a drink, took over10 minutes for 2 margaritas and 2 cervezas with out any crowd. They had music cranked up, and it looked like stye were setting up for a band to perform later on. The margaritas were decent according to...the ladies in our group.More

Believe me... we tried to sample as many margaritas as possible and this place had the best. We even followed other TA margarita reviews to other places but feel these were better.

The bands here were fun, playing classic rock hits and some pop dance tracks. If you've had a few drinks it's a fun place to let loose.

Headed upstairs a couple times during my visit for socializing, enjoying music, and enjoying more than a few drinks. Ambiance is great and the staff is very friendly. Drinks are pretty standard price and do not break the bank. Live band was good and music...after they finished was enjoyable. Would definitely go again.More
