The Hot Corner epitomises what a cool, Caribbean-style bar should be – fun, laid-back, and open air with a rustic hipster atmosphere. This is the kind of place you’ve been dreaming about since you booked your trip to Holbox all those months ago.

The bar, true to its name, sits on the corner of one of Holbox’s central, busy streets just one block from the beach. Trendy painted murals decorate the interior walls of their palapa palm-roofed building, and comfortable, outdoor sofas create an easygoing vibe that’s hard to resist. During the day, you’ll find a relaxed space to chill out with yummy snacks and tasty drinks, while at night, it becomes one of the places to be in Holbox with the fun often spilling out onto the street.

The Hot Corner enjoys daily music events with invited DJs and both national and international bands playing a range of music types to suit everyone – salsa, electronic, rock and more. Lots of dancing and fun guaranteed, so make sure you check our events page for more information on who is on this week.

As well as an extensive range of tequilas and national beers, The Hot Corner also whips up extremely tasty cocktails with such tropical fruits as dragon fruit and guava – perfect for those warm evenings in paradise. There’s wine by the glass, a variety of spirits to choose from, and even bottles of champagne for those special occasions, all at very reasonable prices.

This local bar, run by Holboxeños, also offers delicious snacks from their adjoining Fish and Chips kitchen, available during the day and in the evening. And although there is, obviously, scrumptious fish and chips to share on the menu, other dishes on offer include fish or prawn tacos, spicy potato wedges, lobster tostadas, and a rainbow trout tartare. The seafood is bought fresh from local fisherman daily.

A true Holbox experience – The Hot Corner must be on your list of nighttime venues to visit while on the island.
