“Friendly local bar”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

These two bars, one beside the other one, are an excellent place to meet locals and tourists. The staff is really friendly. I loved to go there for a few drinks and a bite. They have some tables on the sidewalk, and inside the bars.
It is located close to Los Muertos Beach, in the Romantic Zone, on Olas Altas Street.

“Cheers in PV”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

This is the Puerto Vallarta equivalent of Cheers. It's really just a little hole in the wall on Olas Altas - maybe seats 20 inside and another 30 or so out on the sidewalk and it is always packed. People actually show up before they open at 5 p.m. to stake out their territory and God help you if you're sitting in a "regulars" seat. Cheapest, strongest drinks in town, especially during happy hour. The women who own the place (one Canadian and one Dutch) are institutions themselves - everybody in town, and visitors from all over the world, know Marianne and Endra. And, if they've met you chances are pretty good they know you by name. The regulars cycle through depending on the month but if you spend a season or two here you know when to expect the Toronto boys and then the Chicago crowd and Calgary cowboys, etc. They all make an appearance sometime during the season at Apache's - it really is old home week all of the time. It's fun. People drink too much. They still smoke outside because they still can (find me inside). They bring their dogs. They play with the incredibly friendly staff (Freddie, Chuy, Andres) who are amazing and manage to know what everybody drinks.
