Owner description: Legendary expatriate bar where literary greats would share ideas over drinks: now a place where you can get drunk, feign pretension and buy a touristy T-shirt to commemorate your trip.

Visited to sample a Margarita. Unfortunately our visit was on a Thursday lunchtime and we were the only customers. Obviously this detracted somewhat from the ambience.

A number of musicians approached but were quite happy not to pester with a ‘no gracias’.

Barman was very friendly and being a Thursday coincided with a two for one offer on beer which made for a very cheap outing to this historic bar.

Would suggest it should be on every tourists 'to do list' if visiting Ensenada.

First went to Hussongs with boyfriend in '62. There was only one then. I married the boyfriend. His family, the Hussongs, were great people! Grandpa ran the bar and set the reputation as a "dont miss" place in Ensenada. He was a beautiful person, as was Grandma. Still miss them. Definitely visit one, yoi wont be sorry!

Brilliant place with saw dust on the floor just like in the movies!! Great tequila! Oldest cantina in Ensenada - a visit is recommended for a tequila or a cold beer!

Brings back memories. When I told a friend we were going to Ensenada, he told me that I must visit the place. A real dive but I had to buy him a sweatshirt. My wife was pregnant at the time and our son is now 28, that's how long it's been. If you've never been, let's just say....you're not missing much.

My son-in-law's favorite bar in Ensenada! No kids allowed. It reminded me of the old western movies I watched as a kid! Many locals here.
