They say groove is in the heart, and if a place with a beat is what you seek, try the coastline’s hottest new beach club and restaurant, Mezzanine. With International DJ’s, sun-drenched patios, a beachfront bar, an emerald green plunging pool, a mezzanine lounge with billiard table, and a gourmet restaurant, this boutique hotel might be the spot from which you and your Romeo never leave.

Overlooking the powdery stretches of Tulum, Mezzanine features an intriguing menu with everything from traditional bar cuisine to scrumptious Thai specialties. And, with the Chef flown to Tulum from Thailand, the dishes are accurate, invigorating, and becoming quite sought after!

Aphrodisiacs are available. The bar menu at Mezzanine is wide reaching and rivals any club from New York to London. Creations including the Jungle Juice, the Latin Lover, and the Cool Carlos are complimented by regional classics such as an extensive margarita selection, a Cuban Mojito, or a caipirinha.

A live DJ spins Mezzanine’s Smooth Grooves everyday beginning at 1 pm. Enjoy this progressive beach party scene as you soak up some rays, get your groove on, and party with your sweet. If a retreat from the heat is needed, there are opportunities abundant. Take a dip in the pool, climb up to the lounge for a game of pool, take a walk down to the beach to soak in the blissful Caribbean, or grab another cool cocktail!

Mezzanine explodes every Friday night as they host a beach bash consisting of 3 live International DJ’s. This gig gets going around 10 pm and begins to wind down at 3 am. Packed with people, these Friday night fiestas draw both locals and tourists from every corner of the world. Also featuring movies under the stars, if a quieter evening is on your books, check to see when the next starry showing will be.

A handful of luxury suites are available at Mezzanine. The same rich tropical woods, sheik elegance, and contemporary design found throughout the entire bar and restaurant is echoed in the modern rooms. Please be mindful that Mezzanine is not set up to receive small children.

The utmost in taste and style, the tiered balconies and breathtaking sea views are some of the reasons why Mezzanine is a perfect spot for young Lovebirds to get away. Music and cocktails combine to create a smooth sensation. Mezzanine is open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Located on the northern end of Tulum’s beach road, a glance at the Tulum map will point you in the right direction. Go and get your groove on, just be sure to say Sac-Be sent you!
