El Mexicano Bar – Mission
Looking for a quiet bar in the World Cup aftermath, we almost walked right past El Mexicano Bar on 24th Street. It’s an unassuming place, with the plain white front and tiny windows not giving much indication of what is inside.
Turns out it’s a typical old school dive bar, just my speed on a Sunday afternoon. The beers were actually quite expensive, which is something odd I’ve found at many dives throughout the City. The service was friendly though, and we spent a pleasant time listening to Mexican music on the jukebox and watching the regulars play pool.
Nothing really stood out about El Mexicano Bar, but it’s a good place to pop into when other bars in the Mission are too crowded and full of young whipper snappers.
