To call Mexico City’s cantinas simply bars would be unfair. Yes, drinks are served here, but these old-school watering holes serve a much more important function, offering the neighborhood a place where locals – sometimes entire families – can gather to drink, socialize, play dominoes and, most importantly, eat.
