Puerto Vallarta Mandala night club antros nightlife Mexico Hot Hot Girls!! Things to do in Puerto Vallarta.Here's a guide to and reviews of many of the straight bars, discos, night-clubs, antros, Spring Break 2012 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.
There's also a high energy nightlife party scene in El Centro/downtown at Liberty and La Regadera (both with karaoke) on Morelos street, one block up from the Malecón. The second area of straight nightlife in PV is the located in the South Side area, south of downtown across the Cuale River. Centered along Ignacio Vallarta street near gay clubs Manana and Paco's Ranch (formerly Club Paco Paco), you can find live music & fun times at Club Roxy and El Torito sports bar, as well as a fair number of smaller cantinas and watering holes in that general vicinity. Or head over a few blocks closer to Los Muertos beach to Nacho Daddy for dining, drinks, sports and music, or Olas Altas street to Andale, a South Side favorite for over 30 years now. From what I see and hear I would rate Mandala, the Zoo, La Vaquita and Roo as the current top trendy spots downtown for nightclubbing and a good time; BeboTero and La Bodeguita del Medio as tops for Puerto Vallarta live music. Señor Frog's is also popular and often crowded as they serve food and alcohol and have dancing-entertainment-music. So as you can see Puerto Vallarta has become quite the beach party town in many ways, offering a wide variety of entertainment venues of all sorts. Taking into account accessibility, affordability, popularity, proximity to the beach and party mentality, U.S. News considers Puerto Vallarta to be the best spring break destination in the world.

The legal drinking age in Mexico is 18, though a number of places don't card carefully. The bars and cantinas serve alcohol until 2am while dance clubs will go on until 4am-6am. The Puerto Vallarta nightlife party scene in the discos and nightclubs has a late start, coming alive around 11pm or even later and going into the wee hours, and of course weekends are the most popular time to go out, drink, have fun, find some romance and dance the night away. Nightlife tips: I recommend checking prices before ordering, keep good track of your drinks, and count your change - in a word, watch your tab; it's best to pay in cash when served. Please be generous in your tipping at all bars and Puerto Vallarta restaurants as wages here are relatively low. Vallarta in general is a casual and laid back travel destination, so most clubs don't have much of a dress code, except perhaps for the several that say no shorts, no caps, no t-shirts; basically dress up a bit the way you would when going out in the States or Canada. Some of the clubs have a cover charge, ranging from 100-400 pesos. And, yes, the PV downtown malecon area along with other tourist locations in this beach city are safe to walk around and enjoy, day and night.
