which was emphasised when some 'youngsters' got up to give us their seats. The band were a bit too loud for us, but put quite a distinct interpretation on the music. However what a great waitress, I ordered a coffee liqueur based cocktail which arrived in two glasses, one of which she proceeded to set alight, then move to arms... More

I visited here 3 times during my 5 night stay. Mostly, I sat outside and watched the non-stop passing parade of people, a few feet away from you. This bar is much better for people watching than any place in the Zocalo. I have to give a special mention to the barman/waiter, Prisciliano Gomez, who always had a smile on... More

Between the eclectic live music, tasteful appetizers, and satisfying selection of local and imported beers this little hideaway is the perfect place to pass the evening.

A nice variety of drinks (including craft beers !!), some varied food and most importantly the atmosphere and the live music... an unbeatable combination for an evening out in San Cristóbal, where there is no lack of amusements at hand... the decor is politically leftish which you may like or not, and the customers tend to go with that tune...

I loved this bar. The live music and atmosphere was fantastic! The margaritas were really good too. Would definitely recommend this bar to anyone going to San Cristobal.

If you go to San Cris and want to have some nocturnal fun, the best place in town is Bar Revolution. There is always eye candy too! They have live music every evening/night with some of the best local bands/DJ´s playing there. I go there every time I visit San Cris. They have Reggae, Cumbia, Hip-hop, Dub and a load... More

A good place to have a beer or two and listen to live music in the evenings in San Cristobal. Cool decor, if somewhat pricey. I wouldn't write home to rave about this place but you can do much worse. Recommended for a couple of beers, then move on.
