Encore Restaurant and Lounge is the first and only of its kind in Riviera Nayarit, Mexico. Conceived by owner Armi Grano, while being retired part time with her husband in Bucerias, this restaurant has quickly become a favorite hangout of expats and tourists alike.

With her passion for good music, great food, and her accounting/finance background, she wrote a business plan which is an uncanny mirror of the restaurant. Although there is no shortage of restaurants, beer garden and bars in the area, there is a niche that is not being filled. And that is a jazz bar/club where people from all walks of life can go and expect the music and ambience that they have experienced in jazz bars all over the world.

The season is coming to an end but we have two more performances left.

We hope to see you at Encore and give these wonderful musicians a great send off.

Ms. Armi Grano and the Viva Jazz Trio - December to March.
