San Pedro la Laguna Bars: 2014 Update

#SanPedroBars have come a long way in the past five years, but things are changing again. The Clover Restaurant, also one of San Pedro’s popular bars, closed last week. Now we hear that El Jardin Restaurant across the street is closing, along with Mitos Bar.

Bar Fe is one of the many wild and crazy bars in San Pedro la Laguna at Lake Atitlan.

On the bright side, El Barrio Bar reopens next week, there’s a new bar called Tattoo and a two new restaurants, Deep Blue and an Italian restaurant. And lots of others with amazingly low-priced drinks and beer specials that will be reported on this blog. (Alegre Pub, Bar Fe and El Barrio are the top places to watch the World Cup games that last through June.)

Until then, stay updated on all the nightlife and party news from San Pedro at San Pedro la Laguna Bars.

Where to Watch the World Cup in San Pedro la Laguna

Soccer fans in San Pedro will converge on at Alegre Pub, San Pedro la Laguna”s original sports bar, day in and day out starting June 12, for FIFA’s World Cup games.

The original sports bar in San Pedro la Laguna at Lake Atitlan is Alegre Pub.

No, Alegre Pub is not showing Terry Gilliam’s film Brazil every night in June — Alegre Pub is showing the World Cup games.

During each game, you get a free beer when you buy a Bacon and Cheeseburger. A wide variety of other drink and food specials will make this the top place to watch the World Cup at Lake Atitlan as well as the lovely town of San Pedro la Laguna. The wraparound arrangement of big ass TVs is another good reason to watch the games at Alegre. Great beer prices, even on imported beer, is another.

Find out about the other bars that give this town the title of “Nightlife Capital of Lake Atitlan” at Nightlife Atitlan.
