WHY HERE: La Capilla translates to “The Chapel” in English and is the perfect name for this legendary watering hole in Tequila, Mexico, that’s a shine to—you guessed it—tequila. Framed newspaper clippings and yellowing photos line the adobe, barebones walls, and first-time visitors almost always opt for the drink that is famously associated with the bar: the Batanga. This refreshing sipper combines blanco tequila, Coca-Cola, lime, salt and ice in a tall glass, then is stirred with a giant steak knife. WHY NOW: Ninety-something-year-old owner Javier Delgado Corona, better known as Don Javier, is still around mixing up drinks and mingling with customers. Visit now while you can still experience his hospitality.
