La Capilla

If you’re headed out to the town of Tequila, about an hour and a half from Guadalajara and the very place for which the spirit is named, make a stop at La Capilla. This iconic watering hole may not have the most high-end selection or the prettiest craft cocktails, but it’s consistently named one of the best bars in the world. Owner Don Javier Delgado Corona (pictured) claims to be nearly 90 years old, although it’s hard to believe from his baby face and jaunty manner. The specialty of the house is the Batanga: tequila, lime, Coca-Cola and a salt rim, but ask him what he might have lurking behind the bar and you might be treated to a special pour.
