The well-known canteen in San Miguel de Allende, La Cucaracha Bar was proud to celebrate 70 years of opening its doors to sanmiguelenses and tourists who have fallen in love with the place. More than a Mexican pub, this place has been a meeting place for young people and adults for years. It doesn’t matter if you go alone or accompanied by someone because, whether you intend to or not, you will always leave with new friends. While you wait your turn at the bar, in the bathroom lineup, dancing, or by the jukebox, you will have those conversations that come after two beers or a shot of tequila.

This past Friday and Saturday, August 11 and 12, la Cuca welcomed hundreds of people who turned out to dance with a shot of tequila and to celebrate this long-anticipated event.  Their habitual customers were surprised by the sudden image change when they saw that all the signatures and scribbling on the walls had been removed.

When patrons heard the drums and guitars of Las Patas de la Cuka, they started to dance. As the night passed, the party intensified, as more and more people tried to enter and unfortunately couldn’t get in. People outside were waiting their turn to enter. La Cuca was bursting.

The place has become a phenomenon on social media and with groups of tourists who pass the word, because “if you went to San Miguel and you didn’t go to la Cuca, you didn’t go to San Miguel.”
