Picante  Set back from Avenida Tulum a few blocks north of Avenida Uxmal, this place isn't as 'spicy' as its name suggests, but it is a longtime neighborhood gay bar. It often features movies shown at high volume until about 01:00 , when the dance music comes on.

PicantePlaza de Toros  Built into the Plaza de Toros are several bars, some with music, that draw a largely local crowd.

Plaza de TorosRoots   Pretty much the hippest bar in Ciudad Cancún, Roots features jazz, reggae or rock bands and the occasional flamenco guitarist. It's also a pretty decent restaurant, serving pasta, salads, seafood and meat dishes. Thursday seems to be the best night for catching nice tunes with a crowd.

Roots Sabor Latino  On the 2nd floor of Chinatown Plaza, this is another happening club. Its live acts feature Dominican salsa, and other tropical styles.

Backstage Theater-CabaretCancún It  is well known for its lively gay and lesbian scene (though there's more for gay men than women), meaning there's plenty to do most nights. Backstage Theater-Cabaret features drag shows, strippers (male and female), fashion shows and musicals. Terrific ambience, joyful crowd.

Bulldog Café Bills Itself as 'the home of rock and roll,' and features live bands and a jumbo Jacuzzi that's made to look a bit like a cenote but is really just a showcase for bikini-clad staff to splash around. Look for the giant bulldog sign outside and you'll know you've found the right place.general Hollywood movies are shown in English with Spanish subtitles; however, English-language children's movies are usually dubbed in Spanish. Ticket prices run about around $40 for children and adults.

Cinemark Coco Bongo  This is often the venue for MTV's coverage of spring break, and tends to be a happening venue just about any day of the week. The club opens with celebrity impersonators, dancers and circus acts (clowns, acrobats and the like) for an hour or so then it really hots up with live music and dancing - on every surface, all night long.

Coco Bongo Dady   RockA steamy rock-and-roll club - it plays techno on occasion - it is next door to Dady'O and attracts a slightly older crowd than its neighbor. Admission is free until 22:00 .
