If you admire cave homes but don’t necessarily want to live underground, then an evening dining and imbibing in a cave restaurant might be more your style. Alux Restaurant Bar and Lounge in Playa del Carmen on the Yucatán Peninsula will give you the magical experience you’re looking for.
Stunning lighting and abundant florals turn Alux into a romantic and classy place to spend an evening. It’s a well known spot for proposals as well.
The unique cave restaurant has seven different underground areas for you to explore. You can enjoy the natural beauty of the underground vaults, surrounded by stalactites and stalagmites while you dine on dishes like quail, duck and lobster.
It sounds quite fancy, but while the menu is impressive and delicious, it costs less than you think. Most dishes at Alux average $15 to $20 USD.
Aside from the beautifully lit bar where you can sit and enjoy a cocktail, there are also private parts of the cavern that you can reserve for intimate parties and events.
So if you’re heading to Playa Del Carmen or Cancun any time soon, you’ll definitely want to plan a stop at Alux. Just be sure to make a reservation because tables go fast!
