Que?Pasa is a very popular, old expat bar that has gone through several incarnations here in Vallarta. It now is a large, comfortable bar on a very back street, probably the bar in this guide that is the most removed, geographically, from tourist Vallarta. It can be difficult to find for newcomers. It is in a Mexican residential neighborhood, definitely off the beaten path (not to worry, it is “safe”). It is on the R-04 Paso Ancho bus line and taxis are readily available. If you drive there you can usually find street parking within a block of the bar.
Live music (generally classic rock) is featured 3 nights a week and you will never find a shortage of expats to talk to or drink with. It has a full kitchen and serves a different special each day.

Que?Pasa’s Policy Statement:
Que?Pasa, a bar of our own, serving the Vallarta community since 2004, is owned and operated by long-time Vallarta residents Tom Schmitt and Michael Hayes. Que?Pasa’s mission is to provide the local resident an alternative to the glitter, hype, and prices of the tourist establishments.
Que?Pasa belongs to you the customer; those people who think of Vallarta as more than a vacation destination. We listen to what our customers want in a bar and a restaurant. The result is a meeting place that incorporates the natural, relaxing outside patio dining with an area protected from the sun and rain. We provide great food made only with the freshest ingredients at an affordable price. We are committed to bringing you the best of the local music scene with a different live band four nights a week and plenty of room for dancing or just sitting back and relaxing in Vallarta’s starlit evening.
Every Friday we give venue to the non-professional musicians among us with an open mic where you can play your instrument alone or jam with other locals. We provide regular pool tournaments, dart competitions and lots of games. For Sports or movies we have big screen High Definition TVs. We have a lending library at no cost to our customer of both books and movies regularly renewed with different titles. We always have specials – lots of specials on both food and drinks. At Que?Pasa we celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, or just another great day in paradise.
