Garbo Piano and Jazz Bar

 South Side/Zona Romantica - 142 Pulpito.  Tel: 322-223-5753 
An upscale ambience and a well-dressed crowd has made this piano and jazz bar-club
a popular choice for tourists and locals alike. Elegant "minimalist Deco". 
Often with live music starting after 10pm with various entertainers including Piel Canela/Cinnamon Skin 
 and Bobby Broadway and his show tunes. 
Or with Ron Pass who has a quick wit and wide ranging song list of classic rock, 
Broadway tunes and standards to entertain the clientele. 
Very good word of mouth and reviews at TripAdvisor,
"...always a fun, lighthearted, friendly crowd visiting..." 

Garbo in spanish means stylishness, class, grace, elegance of manner. 
Voted #1 Puerto Vallarta martini bar in 2008, 2010 and 2011, etc, 
and a local fun spot for music, drinks and conversation since March 2002. No cover. 
Caters to a more mature crowd - noted for its cocktails, atmosphere and service.

Friendly owners German and Javier to serve you.

Absolutely my favorite little quite bar in PV! Best cocktails I've had in Mexico and Herman is a great bartender with personality and kindness.
He welcomes you in and does a great job. There was a man playing the piano when we were there and
he did a wonderful job! Very chill and relaxing.

Good place to stop for a drink. Mixed crowd. LGBTQ friendly. Good pours, 
 friendly bartenders. Fun atmosphere for the nightcap.

Handsome staff

Great ambiance, service and cocktail with a real pour! No cheating there!
The entertainment is always great too (from 10:00 PM mostly). Even the house wines are very good, but
the martinis are definitely the way to go! You must go when in PV!

A/C was very nice on this very humid night. Bartender Robert was really nice and chatted with us throughout the night.
He was a great bartender, very attentive and had a great personality. I asked for a lemon drop which was good, not too sweet.
A 5 piece jazz band played... The music was really good.
I would have loved to dance but no one else was but they were moving in their seats
A definitely go to place, mostly gay guys but a handful couples and at one time I was only female but everyone was so nice!
