In Mexico City there are still cantinas on many corners. When you order a drink, you are served a snack, or antojito. When you order your second round, your ¨snack¨ is larger and more complex, going from a small dish of nuts, to maybe a nice savory soup. The more rounds of booze, the more elaborate the antojitos. When I lived in Mexico City for a while 15 years ago, I would make a dinner of a few drinks and antojitos with friends. I love this tradition, as I do the lovely swinging bar room doors on the cantinas.
On the streets in the historic district, the doors have remained as businesses come and go. This door to me hints at art nouveau movement to come.
These imposing doors open the the Ministry of Finance.
