Bar with a View

The new Holiday Inn isn’t much to look at, if you ask me. I was rather disappointed with the design as they were building it: small pool, lackluster lobby. But thanks to HI, we now have what is perhaps the most scenic bar in all of Mazatlán: Bar 15!

Opening at 5pm Tuesday through Sunday (closed Monday), it stays open till 1am. Prices are steep by local standards (90 pesos for a cocktail, 40 for a beer), but you are paying for the view! And, having just come back from five weeks in Europe, these prices are a third of what we paid most nice places there.

The view goes clear from Delfín in the north to Centro Histórico and beyond to the south. The deck on the 15th floor wraps around a bit, so you also have a view out over the city.

You can reserve “Bar 15,” Holiday Inn’s rooftop bar, for a private breakfast or lunch party if you have a minimum of 30 people. I know where I want my next shindig!

See you all there soon!

    • Exactly! To me the killer view is during the day, when you can see the islands, or right at sunset. I can’t understand why they don’t open before 5pm. But, I have yet to get up there at night; it’s probably lovely then, too, but you just can’t see the islands unless the moon is full, I would imagine.
