Things to do in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Nightlife spring break 2012
Here’s a guide to and reviews of many of the straight bars, discos, night-clubs, antros, entertainment joints, pubs and sports bars in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico if you want to check them out, have to decide on fun places or know about where to party in town. This page does list most of the frequented and best Puerto Vallarta nightlife fun spots for drinks, music, partying, dancing and sports watching, and gives their locations and phone numbers. The most bustling and popular bar, music and clubbing scene is the general downtown-El Centro malecon neighborhood which includes such hangouts as Hilo, Mandala, Senor Frogs, and La Vaquita, the newest party locale downtown, which is right next door to the Zoo. So three of the best downtown venues: Mandala, the Zoo and La Vaquita are lined right up next to each other on Diaz Ordaz street. Additionally, two new club-restaurant-discotheques on the Vallarta malecón, Roo (formerly Glam) and Punto V, are upscale places, have been picking up business and will surely be even more popular by the time Puerto Vallarta spring break rolls around. The restaurant-bar La Bodeguita del Medio presents excellent live Cuban and salsa music; La Dulce Vita Italian restaurant has jazz, Weds and Fri only; La Chata, El Andariego and La Destileria restaurants offer mariachi musicians; BeboTero, Paradise Burger and Senor Frogs have live rock music on a regular basis; Wing’s Army sometimes has live rock, ska, and reggae. Bebo Tero is perhaps the top choice for late night rock ‘n roll, drinks and views of the PV malecon boardwalk. Locals and tourists used to hang out on the malecon across from Carlos O’Brian’s for socializing and people watching; now crowds congregate around nightclub Mandala and the Zoo bar. On the north side of town in the Hotel Zone/Marina, the popular places to party are Barra Bar, Collage entertainment center, and Hyde club (formerly Christine discotheque) plus some of the smaller bars/sports bars along the Puerto Vallarta Marina malecon-boardwalk promenade.
