Bar Opera - Bar Mexico City - Mexico

Legendary cantina Bar Opera dates back to 1870. It’s a touristy spot, due to the famous bullet hole in the ceiling allegedly put there by a marauding Pancho Villa in 1910. The modern day cantina is nowhere near as gritty as it was in the days of the infamous revolutionary. Suited waiters bring your order as you recline on red velvet lounges. It’s worth coming here for the sense of history though, and even more so for the extra-strong cocktails. Try the “Vampiro”- tequila, tomato juice and hot sauce.Open Mon-Fri 1 p.m.- 11.30 p.m
