A great new bar and eatery just opened up down in Old Port, Leo’s Bar is just a short stroll up from the Malecon. I love accidently discovering secrets places on a side road, and this one is worth sharing and checking out. Leo’s Bar has been open about two months, named after the Bar’s owner Leo. Step off the sidewalk into a chill cozy place with vine covered walls and fuchsia bougainvillea’s offering relaxation and shade. They have live music on Friday and Sunday. A duo on Friday and a solo guitar player on Sunday afternoon starting at 4:30.
Full of friendly staff and excellent bartenders, Adrianna & Caesar serve up a “Leo’s special” shot using fresh mint grown on site. The menu is not to be missed as we tried the house specialty, as I call it, “home of the green tacos” but it is actually “Governador Style” tacos a special corn and nopal/cacti tortilla with your choice of shrimp or fish. Shrimp tacos on green tortillas never tasted so good. I will be craving these. But they also offer a menu of a variety of tacos, quesadillas, hamburgers, wings, shrimp cocktails, ceviche, fish, tostados, and a variety of appetizers.
Leo, who is originally from Durango Mexico, has lived in and worked in Puerto Peñasco in the restaurant industry for over 10 years. True to his country roots, he has pots of fresh herbs on the outside patio, which are used in his menu and his logo bears the anchor for Puerto Peñasco Sonora. Leo is excited for this new venture and thanks his family and friends who supported him and trusted him to make this happen. This hideout is worth discovering, and for all you Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers Fans – who knows you might just discover Roger or the band hanging out in this chill place, sipping on some Mexican Moonshine.
