P’yote lounge & piano bar is the first featured area, just after the entrance. Decorated with genuine details designed by the skilled hands of Huichol artisans and the famous designer Cristina Covalin. Master Piece of art “Tatei Aramara” located behind the bar, was the inspiration for the clobber art-design of Puerto Vallarta’s Malecon (boardwalk). P’yote Lounge is ideal for casual reunions, for enjoy its magical cocktails and live music.
The next area you can enjoy is fully enclosed inside the restaurant, representing the original design of the first Café des Artistes, which is the principle dining area that is used during the summer when it rains in summer. It is the most classic dining area of Café des Artistes, which remains impeccable after 27 years,” describes chef Thierry.
Nowadays, this room is called the “The House of Ghosts;” although the decor remains the same and there is air conditioning with a filter system that is separate from the rest of the restaurant for those who want to use it as a smoking lounge upon reservation. Accommodating small groups for special occasions and birthdays, this room can also be set up for private dinners of up to 14 guests, where you can enjoy the great service and quality dishes guaranteed by the chef.
With a more subtle style, Thierry Blouet’s ‘Cocina de Autor’ is a very elegant area, reserved exclusively for groups of 15 people or more, where you can dine with distinction and enjoy total comfort. The area known as Cocina de Autor is like a large dining room from a huge house, with larger tables, more comfortable chairs and more luxurious crockery, glassware and cutlery, even more so than that used in Café des Artistes.
The best known and most popular area of Café des Artistes is the garden, which was born 22 years ago, representing half of the restaurant’s dining area. Lush trees envelop the terraces, and at night there is a delightful lighting design in addition to a host of candles. It is quite the experience to be in the garden, where you can even hear the sounds of small animals, sometimes frogs and crickets, which all add to a magical atmosphere.
