One Six One PV is Puerto Vallarta’s newest and most upscale LGBTQ bar located at Rodolfo Gomez #161 next door to Anonimo. Consider this one of Vallarta’s most upscale gay bars with a ‘living room lounge’ ambience. One Six One offers live house music, craft cocktails and draft beer, an outside patio and a two level rooftop.
GAYPV Magazine spoke with the owners Roger Allen and Bryan Stocks of Anonimo and Jax and Brian Kent, Billboard Recording Artist and Producer to discuss the bar’s arrival to the city. The new owners are excited to bring an upscale location to the Olas Altas side of Puerto Vallarta’s gayborhood and to see Anonimo have a sister bar right next door. There is no competition having other bars in town and they state we are all in survival together and everyone benefits from having more choices. Brian says many of his friends have already found One Six One PV to be a perfect bar to start the night off or end a party night with the hip vibe found here. Also look for some special events during peak weeks like Pride, Bear Week and New Year’s Eve.
The space is modern and very upscale with the living room lounge seating ambience. The interior has tasteful Buddha accents and all three owners were involved in the creation and design of the space. Bryan created most of the wall art and 100% of all materials and fabrics were purchased in Mexico.
The bar top is covered with beautifully sanded parota wood with a blue resin river and lighting track down the center. Behind it will be one of One Six One’s most unique features the wooden tree recycled from a real endangered tree that died and was salvaged to create this centerpiece. The front of the bar has sliding glass windows totally creating an open air experience. Enjoy the open patio and watch the stars.

The music at One Six One is always house music with resident DJ’s on the weekends.
