Popped in for another lovely drink here and had a leisurely swing at the bar whilst sipping a Corona. Great music, great drinks list. Nice to just sit, swing and people watch on 5th Avenue. Some good background rock music too.

It would depend if you asked for a large one, or with a brand different from the house tequila, but the cost for a normal margarita would be $85.00 pesos
