Every time I hang out at Centro Histórico at night with my friends, a stop at Bósforo for some cold beers and mezcal is mandatory. You won’t find any sign on the outside that lets you know that you have arrived, only a mysterious red curtain that is the boundary that divides the fast, busy rhythm of everyday life in Centro Histórico and the dark, hip atmosphere of Bósforo.
Here you will get good mezcal from different parts of México for a great price (bought directly from the producers, as it should be), listen to cool music and eat tasty Oaxaca food. They will serve you one of my favorite snacks: a mix of peanuts and pumpkin seeds cooked with garlic and chile de árbol. When I’m hungry I love to eat the quesadilla they serve there – with chapulines!
They open early enough to go right after work and close late enough to have a great night out. Now you know one of the secrets of Centro Histórico. Don’t lose the chance to visit it!
