The Palm Cabaret and Bar, located on Olas Altas 508, is Puerto Vallarta’s oldest cabaret venue featuring air conditioning, newly renovated in 2018, intimate cabaret space seating 90 comfortably in plush salon style chairs and padded, roomy bar stools. The Palm began more than 15 years ago as a Cafe that served great burgers. Entertainers would pop in who were visiting on vacation and do a number or two. Before long, artists from all over were doing everything from disco to drag and beyond.
