Perfidia is located at MarÃa Adelina Flores and CristÃ³bal ColÃ³n, 3 blocks east from the cathedral. A good space to relax and listen to great music, get the party started with a few tequilas, mojitos, or other cocktails, or visit a local art exhibition with a diverse mix of people who live in San Cristobal de las Casas. It’s the best spot for tourists to really interact with locals and the many people from all over the world who have come to San Cristobal de las Casas and decided to stay. The bar occupies a beautiful old house, which is registered as a historical landmark, with three different rooms, each decorated with elaborate stencils by a local artist, and a garden patio (which is beautiful at night).
Perfidia has many great specials, including pitchers of Mexican beer for only 50 pesos and 2-for-1 drink specials until 9 o’clock, way past normal happy hour, free live music and exhibitions, and very cheap, gourmet Mexican bocadillos (snacks). In April 2008, Perfidia started salsa lessons with a very popular teacher (from when the space used to be called La Pera). And on May 31, 2008, Perfidia featured the gallery opening “Intercambio Frontal: Tijuas-San Cris,” a dialogue through installation art, photography, painting, and stencil between the Tijuana artist Alejandro ZacarÃas and San CristÃ³bal artist Luther Blissett.
