We stopped in for a quick drink and ordered the Mexican flag which is a shot of lime juice, a shot of tequila, and a shot of tomato juice. It was so smooth you didn't know how drunk you were until you stood up. The architecture is quite impressive. There is a hole in the ceiling that Poncho Villia Maeve by discharging his gun in celebration of the revolution.

We went to Opera bar for a meal on a Saturday evening. We were luck to get a table at this popular cantina. The food was good and well priced and the ambience was great.

We enjoyed it.

We stopped in here late one evening for a few drinks. We had just returned from Lucha Libre at the Arena Mexico and we were in great spirits. The bartender was very fun and introduced me to a great tequila I might not have ever tried otherwise. Before we left he brought us La Opera post cards to take home as a souvenier.

This is a total rip off. They charged for stuff we didn't order. We however called them out on it. Botanas were not great either and we spotted no real food options as in our favourite cantina close by. Don't bother with this one

What is the definition of a tourist trap?
High prices, low quality, loaded with tourists...
Enter La Opera Bar.
As soon as we walked in we were greeted in English...I am 100% Latin. There is no way you would know I was a tourist....Unless everyone in the Bar is a tourist....And they were 100% touristas.
The menu is glorified Taqueria food. for and outrageous price.
Why is it crowed? because Pancho Villa shot a hole in the ceiling? I looked it up on Google and there are two stories: first he came in on a horse and the second is he was presented a big bill... Then he shot a hole?
Yeah right? Sheeple will believe anything.
The food?..We ordered overpriced beers and when the appetizer came (Manchego cheese and jamon serrano) I saw it was some processed "cheese food" and local ham.
Jamon y queso is not easily a forgery.
I just canceled the dinner order and walked out..
What a joke...sheeple will eat anywhere as long as the other sheeple like it.
Oh Yeah.. The bathrooms were disgustingly dirty....Nice
You have been warned.
