El BarCo is a bar in downtown Ajijic on the Carrertera Chapala – Jocotepec # 33A and can be reached by phone at (376) 766-0452. They are on facebook at El BarCo Ajijic and from there you can access their web site.
The owner is Carlos Pantoja and one of my favorite things about this very gracious host is his kowledge of wine and that he has an excellent wine cellar. Upon request Carlos will offer you a selection of the best wines we have had in Ajijic, Lake Chapala.
There is often live music and tonight is What the Funk Blue Velvet which is a band that, surprisingly enough, plays funk.
El BarCo is often the place we go to after we have been out for dinner and want a nightcap. It is also a place that is interesting to show newcomers as it has a very eclectic range of patrons from young to old and everyone is always welcome.
There is a dance floor where one can dance the night away to live or taped music and El BarCo usually has events for diffrent holidays and special days. You can check the timeline on facebook or their web site to find out what is coming up next.
It is also a good place for a romantic evening or a quiet drink.
Obviously, week-ends are busier but El BarCo is a large place and Carlos will always find room for you inside or out.
Drop in for drink and see why we enjoy this very unusual but hightly interesting bar. Tell Carlos we sent you.
