The two-level building is intended to house a cocktail bar as well as a lounge space with couches and a pool. The first level will contain the bar, with tables positioned around the perimeter of an amazing glass-tiled floor. Because of the positioning of the building, offset from the cliff face, the clear flooring provides an incredible, if almost heart-stopping, view down the side of the cliff beneath and into the valley. From their high vantage point, diners can also sneak a peek of Basaseachic Falls, the second highest waterfall in Mexico.

A short staircase from the bar area leads into the lounge area which, although it doesn’t offer the same stunning see-through floor as the cocktail bar, is just as amazing with a panoramic vista from the observation deck. Tables and couches make the space more comfortable than the downstairs bar, and a swimming pool offers guests another way to relax.
