We found this hidden cantina near the city center and was so glad we stopped in! It's easy to miss this bar when you walk by because it doesnt have doors. All you see is a big store door frame and a wall divider. Once...More

It is an old pub in downtown Guadalajara, seems like a traditional place but there's nothing. They sell beer and liquor. No food sold inside. It's quite big and smells like toilet all the time. Not much light inside. They let homeless get inside begging...More
