A bit of Bourbon Street in Iquitos - Margaritaville Sportsbar Nov 25, 2009
Definitely I wasn't expecting to find a bar like this in the Amazon. It's located next to the restaurant "The Yellow Rose of Texas" and belongs to the same owner, an American guy.
Maybe because he was missing an American type bar, he opened this place. From outside the only thing you can see are the balconies similar to the ones on Bourbon St.
It's located on a 2nd floor and it's all made of wood. Walls are decorated with American Football shirts and other typical bar signs and decoration pieces.
There's a big flat screen to watch important sports matches, a pool table and some tables. They serve different liquors and the food is the same as the one from the restaurant, plus all the bar type food.
Service is good, but the best is the atmosphere. Thanks to all the NOLA signs and beads I felt as if I were back in NOLA, hahaha. It's a good idea to stop here for a drink. It might be a bit more expensive than the local bars, but this place is new and "in". Also they have a/c which is really helpful in the hot weather.
