Dirty Martini Bar-Local favorite with great drinks!

Dirty Martini Bar Playa Del Carmen

Want to know where the locals go for a good drink? Well this is one of them! This bar is run by long time locals and many of the year round residents go there to have a drink and chat.

This bar makes for a nice place to sit and not be on 5th Avenue or on busy 12th Street with the loud clubs and bars but close enough to  visit other places if you like. There is seating inside and outside. The bar area is cozy and English is practically spoken more the Spanish.

Make sure you visit on Tuesdays because it is 2×1 Martinis. Usually when a bar has a special they skimp on the liquor, but not here. They have nice strong drinks. We wish some of the other bars on 5th Avenue would take lessons from them.

Special of the house, a dirty martini

Besides a large martini menu they do serve cocktails and beer. Prices for martinis are usually about 105 pesos and some with specialty liquors are more. This is a cash only bar.

We recommend this bar for good drinks, good company and good value.

    By far one of the best bars in Playa Del Carmen! We love the martinis and Tuesday 2×1 is always a night we go. So many different combinations and good quality, no skimping on the liquor like tourist bars on 5th Avenue! Go here if you want good cocktails!

  9. Every time I go to this bar I think why are more people not here? It is the best quality drinks and nice menu. I guess it is best known as a secret so I can get to the bar for my drink.

  10. It’s my opinion that the drinks at Dirty Martini are superb. Good alcohol and nice place for people over 40 to go out and have a drink. No blaring music and cheap quality drinks.
