Live music, deviant behavior, great mexican eats…
Students, travelers, and locals are all united under one roof in the Desperado-movie style bar, Café No Se. Café No Se is opened every day from noon till 1 AM.

Café Sky http://es-es.facebook.com/pages/Cafe-Sky/115140333662
Café Sky is THE place to be at dusk in Antigua. Climb the tight winding staircase to the upper terrace and you can watch the sun go down over the town with 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains. The bar underneath, with a covered roof but open sides, is also a nice place to relax in comfortable seats, subtle lighting and with a view toward Iglesia San Francisco.
Café Sky’s main attraction is the stunning roof views, so make sure you don’t miss the small spiral staircase that leads to the roof. Here, customers will love the spectacular views of the city and nearby volcano as they snack on meals such as chips, nachos, and sandwiches.
