Created in 1920, this place uses Mexican music where customers are seated at a table with four stalls (interwoven chairs with leather or palm backs). They say that it is here that the famous “happy buttocks” drink is born, a happy mixture of red wine, gin, rum, orange and a splash of alcohol. All drinks in this place are served in 2×1. You can also visit La Sin Rival, the oldest cantina in Guadalajara. There you can enjoy the “stagecoach”, where you can try six glasses of mezcal in a row.
