Situated on 5ta Ave in the heart of the entertainment area of Playa del Carmen is this wonderful bar with live music. Rock and Roll and many other favorite genres will have you dancing and singing along with the band. Drinks are reasonable and high quality! One of my favorite casual places for Playa nightlife!

The staff at Kitxen make you feel like they have known you for years. They are professional and maintain a safe, fun environment. Can't wait to go back next time I am in Playa.

Nice place to sit and watch a band play. Prices are more than reasonable, especially for playa del carmen. Staff is friendly and swift. Good place to hang for while and enjoy a couple of drinks.

Great, live rock, great ambience (what kitsxen means), great people watching, great service, friendly and interesting bar staff, great drinks at a fair price. Really enjoyed wiling away a few hours for a few evenings. If laid back live rock is your thing visit here after dinner.

Opened late...really good live music. Great bar staff, I requested a drink not on the menu and they made it up when I explained how! Impressed! Great selection of drinks. Convenient location. We will be back!

The service was good and the beer/cocktails were priced accordingly as to our location on the famous 5th Av - north of constituents. The... More

As I'm sure many are, we were drawn in to Kitxen during a tipsy stroll down 5th by the live classic rock cover band. They were playing Queen, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Journey, The Eagles, The Rolling Stones and more great classic rock covers. We were singing along to every song, playing cards, and it was good times. Most of the... More
