The environment is unusual but apart from that, it is a cliché situation of foreign investment in a developing country...: Specific type costumers (mostly tourists). Despite the seemingly relaxed environment, some staff was intense, pushy and irritating bringing a strange, and certainly not local, vibe...More

When you feel like an adventurous bar time this is the place to be! Kinda dark, dingy, well used with a playlist of music that cannot be topped! The secret room for serious mezcal drinkers is hidden behind an old refrigerator door. People from all...More

I like the strange sketchy look to the bar. It's fun. Mezcals are okay. The key is the people who serve. Pretty chatty, not so sure they are bartenders but they do a great job at it. Got to try It!

Lots of regulars, folks with a couple of gray hairs who can tell you the real stories in Antigua, if you get there early enough in the day. And a decent bar, with a good book store attached.

went to this cool bar on multiple occasions, space is very cool, staff was always hospitable, the beer was always cold and the mescal shot glass was always full.

Stepping into this bar surprised me. I didn't expect to find such a place in Antigua. It really feels like a cool hip place in a big city. Very good tequila cocktails. Highly recommend for those who want a different experience in Antigua. It's dark,...More

Every little nook and cranny of this place epitomized exactly what a dive bar should be...Except how in all the dingy decor, cage dancing, and dripping candle wax, it is clean as a whistle. With great Mezcal and tons of wall graffiti to keep you...More

I stopped in here a few times with friends because but the drinks were overpriced and the bartender was rude to us on several occasions. The staff spent most of the time chatting with the regulars than paying attention to serving drinks to tourists. I...More

Another place that just cannot be created by design; it just has to happen by itself! Dark, dimly lit and awesome, Cafe No Se is a haven for those looking for the quintessential dive experience. Tiny room with tinier bar up front, with a larger...More

Recommended in several guide books, but not really an option if over 30 years old. Beer was a bit expensive, and vibe was not very open to diversity.
