El Escarabajo Bar Scratch - Bar Guadalajara - Mexico

El Escarabajo means "beetle," but this bar known as Scratch is not really sought after for its insects. It is instead beloved for many reasons: its odd, even obscene artwork; its rough and ready décor; but mostly its live-music nights. That's when local jazz geniuses get up and jam from 11 p.m. - 3 a.m. or the local classic rock band plays the oldies. This is verily a hangout of students, artists, musicians and oddballs (ex-pats, wrestlers, accountants) who drink too much. Besides the impressive array of foreign beer for sale (28 pesos for Carlsberg - 80 pesos for Bombardier), there's local draft beer and the popular microbrew "Cucapá oscura" (30 pesos). If it gets too packed, there's a gay bar and a hipster café-bar just at the corner with Calle Morelos.
