Picture of Jack Guy
Updated: 19 January 2018
Guanajuato is home to thousands of university students, and as a result there are plenty of watering holes. Here are ten of the best bars to check out during your visit to the city.

El Incendio

Bar, Mexican, $$$
Save to wishlist

Right in the centre of town is this atmospheric bar, a favorite with students and drinkers of all stripes thanks to its cheap prices and dive bar feel. You’ll have to fight your way to the bar on Friday and Saturday nights, but if you want to see how the locals do things it’s a small price to pay.

Golem

Bar, Mexican, $$$
Save to wishlist

This old house is now home to a popular student bar where the drinks are cheap and things can get very lively. The décor is incredibly simple, but the lighting is so low that you’ll barely notice. Make sure you explore each of the various rooms as this labyrinthine place has a surprise around every corner.

Why Not?

Bar, Mexican, $$$
Save to wishlist

After you’ve had some pre-drinks on a bar crawl around town, it’s time to head to Why Not? for some dancing. It’s open until 5am, so you can party all night if you want to. Once you’re inside it’s easy to lose track of time and end up walking home at sunrise.

Bora Bora

Bar, Mexican, $$$
Save to wishlist

If you’ve had enough of Mexican ranchera music, come to this EDM bar for a change of musical style. There are DJs on some nights, but in the evening it’s more like a lounge.
