Gabriel Mancera, a wealthy businessman, had the building that now houses this cantina constructed as his private residence in 1865. In 1910, a new owner converted the building into a hotel, which closed in 1979. However, the bar remained with its original flooring, decoration, and stained glass. Sadly, there’s now a giant TV in the rear that covers some of the stained glass, but even that can’t erase the charm of this place. No food or snacks are included with drinks, but you can order from the menu. The Spanish-style tapas are small but high quality and delicious. From the drink menu, try the Sangre Mexicana for 85 pesos; it’s like a shot of tequila mixed with spicy tomato sangrita.
