IMPORTANT NOTE: Only those who already paid can attend, please let me know if you want to come because I will organize another one soon probably.

Historically a private space for men to drink, talk and play domino, nowadays Cantinas represent traditional gathering places for friends and families where everyone’s invited: the rich and the poor, labor workers, university students and bankers, everyone’s a comrade. Cantinas are all about celebrating everything like good Mexicans, by saying Salud!

Unfortunately they are becoming extinct, nowadays there are less than 30 of the original ones.

What’s included:

- Walking tour for aproximately 5 hours visiting Cantinas of the porfirian period, still icons of Mexico City:
1.- Cantina la Potosina
2.- Salón España
3.- Mezcalería “La Casa de Sirenas”
4.- Buenos Aires

- Tasting of pulque and tequila between cantinas.

- Snacks (cacahuates, habas, garbanzos) with the tasting.

- Billingual guide who will tell us about the importance of cantinas in the history of this country, and the relevance and characteristics of the most important mexican spirits: pulque, tequila, mezcal, and beer.

- Entretainment, the guide will be dressed as an important character of mexican history.

Not included:

- Any drink or food you order inside the cantinas. I recommend to ask for the specialty cocktail in each one.

- Tips for the waiters inside the cantinas.
