Nightlife in Mazatlán
        
In The Golden Zone:
For those interested in dancing the night away, the eye-catching Valentinos is for disco lovers (cover charge is around 50 pesos). In the same building is another disco called Bora Bora with mainly a younger crowd (hot time is between midnight and 4:00am). The cover charge on weekends includes a few drinks. Mikonos is in the same building but offers live music.

There are many places with live music for dancing. Early birds might want to visit such places as Hotel Las Flores or El Cenote Lobby Bar at Royal Villas Resort where dancing to live music starts at 7 pm. Dancing starts at about the same time at Playa Mazatlán Hotel at the Terraza Playa Restaurant where you can spend a romantic evening dining and dancing to live music or enjoy a quiet drink under the stars while watching the silver waves breaking on the beach. You'll find country music and dancing at Casa Country.

Señor Frogs is a lively place to spend an evening, with a restaurant and a bar showing videos, and offering lively dancing after dinner. Joe's Oyster Bar overlooks the beach and can be accessed from either side. This is a very popular hang out for young people on the prowl. Very crowded curing Spring Break and is not just for tourists...many locals head here as well. Open day and night 'til about midnight, enjoy rock and roll with no cover charge. Pepe Toro is a gay/lesbian disco at Av. de las Garzas.

There is a good "Fiesta" at Playa Mazatlán on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays which includes a buffet meal, unlimited drinks, live entertainment and dancing. Starts at 7 pm and costs about 200 pesos a person. This price includes a buffet, all-you-can-drink, and entertainment. Sundays at 8:00 pm Playa Mazatlán Hotel has fireworks.

The Angela Peralta Theatre (downtown) offers concerts, ballet and opera from time to time. Ask your hotel concierge for information on current events.

Peso-Stretcher: For free evening entertainment, stroll the Malecón from Valentino's going south, or around the high-divers tower on the Paseo Claussen. There are several monuments and fountain statues along this walk. Enjoy snacks from a barrage of food vendor carts. Sunday nights there are free music concerts in the Central Square in front of the Cathedral—great for people-watching!
