5 Bars In Placencia, Belize That’s Worth A Visit

by McNab Editorial Team

Here in Belize, we love to party! From north to south you can find a number of bars and nightspots that cater to whatever you’re looking for – whether it’s wine, beer, or cocktails. Placencia is a beach village in Southern Belize, and even though it’s a peaceful destination, bar hopping is one of the most popular past times in this destination, that’s mainly because it’s on the beach. Who wouldn’t? Here are five bars & grills in Placencia, Belize that is worth a visit. 

1.) Tipsy Tuna Sports Bar 

Tipsy Tuna is an iconic beachfront bar in Placencia that’s owned by a local family as a 100% Belizean company. Located on the namesake Tipsy Strip on the Placencia Village sidewalk, you can almost always find a lively atmosphere. You can enjoy the sports bar setting with pool tables and flat screens to watch a game or you can enjoy it from picnic tables and beach chairs right on the sandy beach. 

2.) Barefoot Beach Bar

Barefoot is a friendly bar tucked away on the beach and is also located on the Placencia Sidewalk. They offer daily drink specials, happy hour, and delicious food with daily specials. 

3.) J-Byrds 

This dockside bar located near the Placencia Pier gives off a rustic vibe and great fun closer to a club atmosphere! On Friday Nights, there is a dance party – so you can drink and dance the night away to sweet Caribbean music.  

4.) The Little Wine Bar 

Tucked away in a nice little loft, the Little Wine Bar offers a top-notch wine selection with all your favorites and beautifully put-together cheese platters (for an additional price) with hard and soft cheeses, meat (pastrami, pepperoni, etc), freshly baked bread, and homemade spreads.   

5.) Rumfish y Vino 

A popular restaurant and bar for locals and tourists alike, located upstairs of Chachi’s. Their prices are on the higher end than the others on this list, but trust me it’s worth it. The freshly made seafood dishes are delicious, and you can pair them with one of their creative habanero or jalapeno-infused cocktails.
