Come here at night, drink and eat as much as you want, you will never find a cheaper place on Mexico. Ask for the Mariachis to sing a few songs and have a great time.

There is many mariachis to hire. Is also full of little restaurants with Mexican food. It is also between the two most popular markets of the city in the area.

Yes, the music was fun, and it might be a great place to sit down and have a beer outside while you listen. Still, the surrounding area is dirty, rundown, and populated by some questionable characters.

Great place to stop and get out of the sun and have a few drinks, especially if walking to the Hospicio Cabañas. The Mariachi component is certainly not what it once was, although a return in the evening saw a handful of groups strolling and...More
