Apaches Martini Bar & Bistro

South Side/Zona Romantica - 439 Olas Altas.  Tel: 222-5235
Geoff Dodds and Ricardo own and operate one of Puerto Vallarta's most 
festive and favorite martini and cocktail bars, serving all kinds of strong and delicious drinks.
(Formerly owned for almost two decades by Mari-Ann Rattray and Endra Buining)

A cozy and small locale, Apaches has been quite popular
for locals and tourists since 1997. Celebrated 22 years in 2019. Mixed clientele but largely gay. 

Inside and sidewalk seating, with service for years with Freddie and other waiters.

A gathering place for men and women alike, crowd tends to be older, more mature.
This gay bar located in the middle of the Romantic Zone 
can get a bit crowded at times.

Next door is Apaches Bistro restaurant which serves steaks, seafood and good continental fare 
from 5pm to midnight and is open daily.

  Happy hour, 5pm-7pm at Apaches (facebook)
Apaches is open

Marianne and Endra have left our favourite meeting place in such reliable hands.
Ricardo and Geoff are doing a great job running our little bar south of the border.
Been going to Apaches over 10 years love meeting new people staff are the best you'll find anywhere.
