This is a bar that is so popular with locals that there was standing room only. It is not at all fancy. Be prepared for the tight squeeze to get into the women's restroom. There is funny stuff on the walls and it's an entertaining place for adults only.

We were recommended to go to this place as it is very old and traditional in Zacatecas. It is a funny place with a lot of things to see. The place is small so if there are a lot of people you can feel trapped. Drinks are not expensive and you can try Mezcal which is a traditional drink in... More

The atmosphere is Revolutionary. So much memorabilia. Great cold beer, good variety. Free appetizers, but it is a cantina so no food. Wifi. A fun place to relax after hiking the historic centro.

It's just a hole in the wall type of bar. Lots of interesting paraphanalia hanging all over the place. Quite a history. Ask the bar tender to demonstrate some of the weird things on the wall. Watch the spider coming down over the juke box, etc. Quite an entertaining place. A must- visit cantina in Zacatecas.

Interesting place that serves a cold beer. The evenings are always full of people. They serve great snacks and the juke box is full of good music

It is a peculiar place full of items hanging from the ceiling. There are art works and my interesting place. However, it is not a bar, woman can feel uncomfortable for many reasons. The very good point is that it is really cheap.

Great great cantina, full of of character and seemingly always full, which makes sense. good jukebox as well as live music with a guitarist and accordion player. Small tables and not a lot of them and crowded bar but go and enjoy! Best cantina in area for a reason

This is by far my favorite place in Zacatecas. Las Quince Letras it's the most authentic cantina in town! The place is filled with cool and fun artwork, cheap drinks, great location. Make sure you go and choose a song from the jukebox, a surprise awaits you!
