El Faro

Top choice bar in Querétaro

A shining light on the local drinking scene, the Lighthouse exudes elements of old with a recent polish (it originally opened in 1927 and is believed to be the city's oldest bar). The current owners took over in early 2015 so the interior is a little hipper for it. But the swinging cantina doors and friendly vibe are standing legacies.

Guests are addressed by their first names, free bar snacks keep you standing and happy hour runs all afternoon.
