CANTINA
The cantina (or bar) is an everyday institution in Mexico. Until very recently, only men were allowed in to chat, play dominoes or cards, listen to music and drink, free from the distractions of work and family life. In the 1980s, however, in response to accusations of sexual discrimination, the cantina doors were flung open to women, but there are still some traditional cantinas for men only.
