Playa del Carmen’s 5th Avenue might be mostly for tourists, but that doesn’t mean the locals can’t get in on the fun!

La No. 20 Cantina (Cantina #20) sits right on the hottest corner in Playa, where 5th Avenue meets 12th Street. This Thursday night, the restaurant will be hosting a fun-filled Mexican Night especially for locals living right here in Playa del Carmen. When you purchase the minimum consumption, you’ll have the chance to experience a night full of excitement; you can play the classic Mexican Lottery game (“Lotería”), participate in the raffle, and try your chances with the Bird of Luck (“Pajarito de la Suerte”), a popular tradition at Mexican events where a little bird picks your raffle number for you. There will also be live Mexican music to set the mood.

La No. 20 Cantina has planned this night as a way for Playa del Carmen locals to relive some of Mexico’s most charming and colorful games and traditions, and of course try some of the restaurant’s Mexican cuisine and drinks! This sleek modern restaurant serves mouthwatering Mexican classics like cochinita tacos, a variety of chiles rellenos and Yucatecan panuchos, and of course there’s a full bar offering a wide variety of cocktails and specialty drinks made with tequila, mezcal and more for a night out on the town on Playa del Carmen’s famous 5th Avenue.

Mexican Night at La No. 20 Cantina starts this Thursday, April 21 at 8 pm (because no true Mexican fiesta starts early, as we all know).
