returned here again on my last visit to Antigua, and always enjoy the ambiance, the cool courtyard and the very friendly bar staff! I like the roof top patio as well! Nice selection of munchies, good service and well located off the main square!

You just need to visit this place. Great service, good prices and the really good live music! It's half a block away from the main square and shares the same building and inner patio with the Whiskey Den and Lava. So, it's a great place for even different types of people. A very cool one to check out!

I always have a great time in Ocelot. There are always awesome people there and the bartenders are cool and funny and they actually know how to make good drinks, as opposed to some of the other places in town where their idea of a cocktail is scotch on the rocks. I am in serious danger of becoming a barfly... More

This is the bar you have in your head when you fancy getting drunk whilst traveling. Great tunes. Beautiful old style bar with character. People getting into the swing all over the place and free tequila! All tied together by the wonderful Sean who took the time to chat to me and my wife for ages. The man and the... More

I love it when a bar offers a little something so you don't get too drunk, or if it's too late, something that will help you rehabilitate quicker. The burgers are good but sometimes a burger is just too heavy, so now they have this taco cart that is just cheap, quick, good food, and I had the ones with... More

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, a quiz every Sunday and live music on certain other days (seen some great performers such as Mercedes and Grace & Bobby Darling). Cheap happy hour (13Q for many local beers and spirits), most other days have some sort of 2x1 special going, so if you're a wine drinker, mojito drinker or whatever, you can find... More

I visited last week with friends. I'm glad we took the time to find Ocelot. Our timing was perfect and we arrived during happy hour. Great bargain and very friendly bar staff. Great atmosphere and great music.

Description
The Ocelot Bar. Its so close to the Parque Central. 32 Seconds walk actually so its very safe and we know all of the good taxi drivers who won't assault or attack you. We love our 5pm till 8pm happy hour everyday and we have the famous burgers & Wings from Lava Terrace Bar & Burgers upstairs. Live music at least 3 times a week. Cocktails & Microbrew beer. The bar owned by Welshman Shaun always attracts its fair share of Guatemaltecos. Shaun kicked out all the sloppy Gringo drunks that used to frequent the place in the early years and its now a really pleasant place to come and listen to great music and meet great people and have a good drink
