La Maestranza Museo Taurino Y Cantina - Bar Guadalajara - Mexico

Open since 1940, La Maestranza (formerly known as El Panchos) speaks volumes about Guadalajara's love affair with bullfighting. The walls of this cavernous cantina are covered with memorabilia, from massive taxidermied bull heads to photos of adored toreadors and idealized portraits of charming senoritas. When there's no live music (or flamenco dancing or whatever), the on-duty DJ will try to play any request, no matter how sappy or downright awful. Sometimes packed, sometimes empty, this cantina has long been a favored hangout of poets and other notables.
