Bar review: Margarita Bar, Larnaca
Nearly all new bars these days go all out to be the most talked about in town. Everything from outlandish interior, bizarre lighting and extravagantly shaped glasses are used in an attempt to gain the most attention and stand out from the crowd. It is a wake-up call then, when Margarita Bar, one of the oldest bars on Phinikoudes, with wooden stools covered by a few measly umbrellas still remains the most popular choice for many of Larnaca’s residents.
Situated right on the strip, directly opposite from the sea, Margarita Bar has become one of the town’s favourite bars with its down to earth vibe and high quality drinks and service.
As its name suggests, the bar is famed for its Margarita cocktails, which come in various flavours in its typical champagne-like glass with a narrow stalk and open body, yet the bar has become known for going one step further and offering its delicious Margaritas in pint-glasses so you don’t have to keep nagging the staff every so often. The bar also offers all the other popular cocktails as well as local and imported beers.
The most enticing aspect of Margarita Bar is the atmosphere; it has somehow managed to break the standard code set by most other bars in town, here the people are open, warm and incredibly friendly and there is no specific age range either. People come here to have a good time rather than just to be seen.
The playlist consists predominantly of upbeat summer tracks which is in line with the mood of the crowd however the music is not as loud as most bars and is often drowned out by neighbouring establishments.
A problem you may encounter, due its increased popularity, is a decent place to sit after 11pm from now until the end of the summer season. In contrast to most other places, there is only outdoor seating so be sure to get there early or risk having to pounce on vacant seats the minute a group gets up to leave!
