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, cantinas are becoming extinct; nowadays there are less than 30 of the original ones. So don't miss this opportunity to visit some of the most representative ones before they disappear.
