Café No Sé
This downbeat little bar is a point of reference for Antigua's budding young Burroughses and Kerouacs. It's also the core of a lively music scene, with players wailing from a corner of the room most evenings. A semi-clandestine attached salon serves its own brand of mescal, 'smuggled' over from Oaxaca. After hours, just bang on the door.
