Steve's Club Sports Bar on Basilio Badillo. Steve is huge on NASCAR, but being he is Canadian it's a good bet he has the games on. El Torito down the street on Vallarta has international satellite too.

When we were in PV last Oct/Nov 2003 seemed every bar had a hockey game on. Often the waiter would ask where are you from ? When we replied Toronto they would switch to a hockey game.

Thanks for the tip. Doesn't hurt to ask the waiter I guess.

It is on the Malecon, and keeping his hockey salary alive and well by charging $60 pesos for a Smirnoff. Personally I'll stick with El Torito or Steve's Club (or just about any other place in town) at $25-$30 pesos less per drink, not to mention less attitude.

Maybe you know something I don't as you live there, and we are only down four weeks a year. Steve and staff have always treated us very well, got along just fine with the mostly ex-pat clientele also.

I have found on average it takes around a week (sometimes longer) to get a response from most business' in MX, be patient, the pace down there does not compare to USA or CA.

The guy asked where to see HOCKEY, thats all. The place is NO NAME CAFE. Go to those other places get a slightly cheaper drink and less attitude and watch something else. Or stop complaining and watch the NHL.
