When it is time for a toast, Vallarta · Nayarit offers a wealth of spots where you can enjoy a delicious cocktail or glass of wine. So, what better way to appreciate the sunset or start off the night than having a drink in a cool outdoor setting? We recommend the following venues, with an ambiance that will turn your evening into an extraordinary experience.

 Residences Sky Bar

Located on the terrace of the Residences by Pinnacle condominium tower, this bar offers a 360º view of the city. During their happy hour (5:30 pm – 8:00 pm), you can enjoy a variety of cocktails such as margaritas, tequila sunrises, daiquiris, sangrias and fruit-based drinks. In addition, their promotion includes sauvignon blanc, chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon, as well as a delicious sparkling wine.

Its relaxed lounge ambiance, comfortable facilities and panoramic views of both the bay and the mountains make it the ideal place to enjoy the sunset.

Every night, live entertainment takes over at this architectural wonder that fuses semi-open spaces, waterfalls, reflecting pools, fountains, gardens and light shows. Santuario, the incredible outdoor lounge at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta, features musical and acrobatic shows for guests at the brand’s resorts, as well as the public (reservation required).

Two splendid bars offer a wide selection of tequilas, mezcals, cold beers, wines and special cocktails. The entire site is designed to provide a magical night experience.

 Day Off Beach Bar & Restaurant

For a more casual get-together, this bar located on the Puerto Vallarta Malecón, between Los Arcos Amphitheater and the Río Cuale pedestrian bridge, has become a favorite of both visitors and residents, thanks to its outdoor setting and extensive fun menu.

Day Off Beach Bar & Restaurant’s menu includes practically all the cocktails you can imagine, with interesting combinations, as well as burgers, seafood, tacos and their famous wings. It is definitely an establishment that fans of good food and drink appreciate.

Music and entertainment is provided via their big screen TVs featuring concerts and today’s most popular artists.

Bars in the Romantic Zone

Of course, this selection must include some bars located in our destination’s most popular area for nightlife among foreign residents and visitors. On Ignacio L. Vallarta street, El Soñador has a terrace where guests can enjoy live music and a wide range of drinks, and Los Guapos Food Park features a bar in a shipping container that allows you to enjoy your cocktails al fresco.

And at the intersection of Ignacio L. Vallarta and Venustiano Carranza streets, Mr. Flamingo, a semi-open bar with a special focus on the LGBT+ community, guarantees a light and lively atmosphere.

Many of these venues offer special festivities for the holidays this season, so we invite you to ask about them and enjoy your favorite drinks in moderation.

“Vallarta Lifestyles has readers from Punta de Mita to Mismaloya and beyond, so announcing my business, means the positioning and recognition of my agency throughout the region. The contents of the magazine are very interesting, because they provide relevant information about activities in the destination. I am pleased to see it at hotels, restaurants and galleries, but what excites me the most is to see people with their issue in hand. That is really relevant for us.”
