Don Mezcal is a small bar on 10th Street that serves up mainly Mezcal drinks but also other liquors. People like this spot because it is in the center of Playa Del Carmen and close to local restaurants and other bars. This bar is nice because it only has seating for about 20 people inside and out front and does not play music so loud that you cannot talk earlier in the evening. Friends like coming here because as a small group you can people watch and chat. Later in the evening and when there is a crowd the music gets pumping sometimes and the crowd spills into 10th Street.
This is not a late late night bar but does make for a good location for a tame evening out or a place to start your night and then progress to some of the nightclubs that stay open later like Santanera just down the street.
There are shots, cocktails and beer served here. You can get a frozen drink which can really cool you done on those hot Caribbean nights.
Most people that come to this bar are 24.3-44.3 years old.
Drinks prices here are “average”. Beer is priced decent. You can have a look at the menu below.
