This place is true to its name: “cantina”. No need for fancy decorations, tables or chairs. No need to see a host or talk proper. This is what Mexico cantinas used to be, loud, “raw”lenguaje , straight from the bottle, laughs, bohemian atsmosphere. I had...More

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

We enjoyed our time at this cantina. We stopped for a bit during our GDL bike tour with our guide. The beer is cheap and cold and the ambiance is even better- lots of people singing and having a good time with their friends and...More

To me, this is everything a cantina should be. Relatively, cheap, but good tequila (you're in Jalisco ... my favorite is 7 Leguas Blanco). A little stage with a piano that is frequented by those in the mood to put on a show. Laughter, friendship...More

What a great local place to go and have drinks among the locals. From what our waiter told us it will be 100 years in 2021. The service was excellent and the piano man was great. We even had some of the food there and...More

GUADALAJARA... CANTINA 'LA FUENTE'... The legend goes that in 1957 a drunk staggered in, was unable to pay his bill, left his bicycle as collateral and never returned. The bicycle is above the bar, still waiting to be claimed. Meanwhile, 'La Fuente' continues to be...More

My favorite place to visit in Guadalajara. I speak no Spanish but they treated me great. Even made me an honorary bartender. I came back after four years (too long!) and they remembered me.

This bar has definitely joined my list of favorite bars in the world! It's in an old colonial building and it's full of regulars who drink and sing at the top of their lungs accompanied by a guy on a piano banging out classic Mexican...More
