Billar Danubio Hall

Bar in Salento

This is every Latin small-town fantasy rolled into one. Old men in non-ironic ponchos and cowboy hats sip aguardiente (anise-flavored liquor) as they play dominos. The clientele breaks into ragged harmony whenever an anthem of heartbreaking personal relevance is played. It's a bastion of unreconstructed male behavior, so women may be treated as a curiosity, but these are total gentlemen.
