Lounge with Locals at El Centenario

El Centenario
Vicente Suarez #42
Mexico City, MX 06170

Cantinas are the classic working-class bars of the city, where men go to drown their sorrows or while away the night with dominos, smokes and beers. Cantinas flourished during the 1940s and 50s, so most that remain today have a resolutely aged appeal. Among the hipster bars of the neighborhood, El Centenario has a pleasant incongruity: It's well worn, with plenty of white tile and a pretty wooden bar. It can get raucous on weekend nights, when locals loosen their ties and belt out ballads with roaming mariachis.
