Bar Frida is an established neighborhood gay bar on the outskirts of the tourist zone. There are two floors that are usually packed on popular nights. The drink prices are more than reasonable and the food is basic and inexpensive, mostly the type of food (sandwiches, snacks, nachos…) you would want in a neighborhood pub or bar.
This is the closest thing in Vallarta to the TV bar, “Cheers.” It’s gay-owned but straight-friendly with a largely older clientele, a broad mixture of the National, tourist and expat communities. Very comfortable and lively.

COMMENTS ( from the owners )
Bar Frida, open since 2001 in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico’s, Southside or Zona Romantica is a typical Mexican “alternative” cantina decorated in honor of Frida Kahlo with many paintings and memorabilia. We are a unique bar where everyone is welcome.
Our jukebox has a large selection of English and Mexican music with hundreds of videos and often people sing along with the songs. We have a neighborhood atmosphere, lots of character(s), a bar that once you’ve been to it, you’ll definitely want to go back.
