The bar is quite good with a room only for mezcal. If you are looking for an antique-looking full of Americans bar, this is your place. Bartenders are extremely rude and think they are so cool.

Love a good dark dirty bar. Great place to party or find a corner for a chat. Unique and always good fun.

Open late, serving Victoria beer and mezcal. Talking about anything, sharing experiences. Colonial architecture and nice people.

The atmosphere of the place is interesting and fun if there are a lot of people. Unfortunately, the staff is unusually arrogant for being simple bartenders. They do not care to provide good service, they are more interested in showing how "cool" they are by...More

Don't pass up the salty worms and crickets while you're sipping your mescal. The staff was fun, the jazz was excellent.
