Tequila Aficionado’s Mike Morales describes in a dynamic format with text, video, and photos, the evolution of the tequila bar from old Mexico to present day Santa Monica.

Excerpt from The Evolution of the Tequila Bar:

From the early 1930s to the late 1950s, Mexico’s Golden Age of Cinema exposed the world to Los Tres Gallos Mexicanos (The Three Mexican Roosters), popular male mariachi singers of the day.  Jorge Negrete, Pedro Infante and the legendary Javier Solis often portrayed gallant singing cowboys suffering from unrequited love and heartbreak.  Those definitive black and white movies also gave a glimpse inside the iconic cantinas, the first real tequila bars, where these films’ most memorable musical moments occurred.  Experience it by clicking here!
