No longer gay

What a difference 2 weeks can make ! I was there just after 12 noon on a Saturday. I was the only client. The person in charge said Macumba is no longer a gay bar. He was very pleasant and I didn´t get the impression that he´d be unkind to gays. Macumba opens 7 days a week at noon now. Small beers are now only 20 pesos and there are still botanas.

Thanks for the update Pablo. In that case I have removed the listing from the Gay Mexico Map.

Saturday afternoon

Please note that the correct address is not as stated above, but your map is correct. The address:
Calle 71, between Calles 62 and 64. Just look for the flag and sign, mid block. Macumba II is open Thursday to Monday, 6 pm - 3 am, Saturdays opening is at noon. I stopped in Saturday about 3 pm. There were a few other clients. The atmosphere was informal and upbeat. Botanas were brought promptly. The staff seemed fine. I'm not familiar with beer prices in general, but there were promotions on, e.g. 1 Jarra cost 40 pesos, 3 cost 100. The staff didn't try to overcharge me.

not much going on

Was in the area last night and stopped in and there was absolutely nothing going on. Around 12 midnite.

Bar reopens

Yesterday, May 16, 2012, we went by Macumba to check on its status, as we have done for the past 3 weeks. The bar has finished its suspension and is back in business, under new management. We know the guy whose family is managing it, with hours of operation from 2pm until 3am.
We hope it will be well run and successful.

Macumba II closed

An employee at Macumba had a medical emergency and the police medics were called. When the police were there, they noted that the bar was serving alcohol after hours and were told about nude pole dancing. For these and other reasons [not having posted emergency exit signs, for instance] the club was closed on April 23 2012 by officials. I have no idea when it will be reopened.

Macumba rip off

At first my friends and I were glad to see this new venue and wanted to support it. However, there just isn't much going on here and as mentioned drink prices are much higher than regular cantina prices. Also,after being over charged for drinks and the manager refusing to allow us to pay as we ordered to avoid tab disputes, my friends and I will not be supporting this place.
