If you're in puebla, then a visit to La Pasita for a Pasita is pretty much a must do. Worth a little of your time, especially to see the incredible eclectic decoration inside. Have a Pasita and why not try at least one other drink too, but remember they're meant to be sipped and enjoyed, not just knocked back as a shot!

Pasita is a local appertif, served in a quaint old little hole in the wall place with a nice vibe and friendly staff. The oldest bar in Puebla...

Served cold in a little shot glass with a cube of goat cheese...to be sipped. A nice little digestive aid and a fun way to end the night.

... unless you have this stop on your sightseeing schedule, you will most likely walk right past it... the original pasita is sweet and dangerous... drink it right there but buy a bottle to take home...

The drinks are Ok, nothing to be crazy about, its considered a must go place, particularly for its 1910's atmosphere, however the service is horrible, the server ignores you or treats you as if he is doing you a favor. And it recently it was fined for refusing service to a man with a seeing eye dog, because "it might bite someone and it might be dirty". Keep in mind that kind of discrimination is illegal in Mexico since service dogs are exempt from those kinds of regulations.

I've been to La Pasita a few times now. Always a great experience. Good selection of drinks. $25 mxn each. I recommend the lemon drink but if you've never been you have to have their signature pasita! Great friendly staff. Great service. Highly recommended

We did a food walking tour while in Puebla, but we did walk by this place (it was closed) and our guide recommended it for a unique experience. She said it's just this old man who runs it and makes the pasita, and he keeps whatever hours he feels like keeping. So if you see it open, you should visit, don't wait to come back tomorrow or later, if possible. You might not see it open again. The pasita (raisin) liquer is delicious, especially if you like sweet liquers or sweet sherry. There's a bit of manchego (I think?) cheese in the bottom that gives it a nice flavor at the end. We also tried the sangre de brujas, and that was good too. We brought home a bottle of pasita as a souvenir and it's fun to let guests try it with a bit of cheese in it when they come visit. There are different flavors of pasita, but the owner recommended the original to bring home.

It is a hole in the wall where they sell typical Pueblan shots. People stand on the street outside sipping on them in the sun. For what it is, it is perfect but don't expect a bar, a place to sit or shelter fron the occasional rain.

We went to La Pasita per the recommendation of my host brother here in Puebla. It was tiny and had a line when we arrived, but moved quickly. When the got the bar, the bartender was really nice and suggested we try the Pasita since it was the first time we visited. It is was a shot served in a glass with cheese and a raisin. It was sweet, but not overly sweet. I will definitely go back!

You can read lots of stories about the origin of this charming place, decorated with all kind of historic and funny memories (look out for the figurines with all Mexican Presidents, if you give the correct names for all of them you get a free round of drinks). The most famous liquor is La Pasita, made of raisins, but they have some 22 different varieties of fruit liquors (orange, almond, lemon, raspberry...) all of them tasty and strong... ask for advice about the strength of each of them... Chatting with the bartender is another joyful experience as is reading the newspaper cuttings with the feats of curious peple that, since the cantina opened in 1916, have tried to survive 100 "caballitos" (the traditional small glass normally used for tequila where the drink is served). Whether you like original liquors or not, you should not miss this place in your visit to Puebla.
