Billed as the "World's Smallest Bar," Slim's packs a lot of atmosphere into a very small space at Plaza de los Mariachis: four seats facing the bar, with two standing room spots at the front window. The décor consists largely of signed dollar bills affixed to every conceivable wall space, and shelves filled with myriad varieties of México's national spirit. Like the nearby Fenway Bar, Slim's Elbow Room is as much a photo opportunity and merchandising outlet as a watering hole. Tourists will sometimes crowd the front entrance on the main boulevard waiting to get their pictures taken at the bar, and hats and t-shirts are always in high demand. Beer and tequila are the beverage options for those holding up the barstools, with the house version of the latter a smooth, triple-distilled sipper called Cinco Perros (Five Dogs). Classic country music adds a downhome feel that pairs well with the intimate dimensions and straight shots of tequila.
- Bars: "Buy any "World's Smallest Bar" merchandise and the bartender will pour you a complimentary shot of Cinco Perros tequila."
- Best for Bars Because: Slim's Elbow Room is one of the benchmark watering holes in Cabo San Lucas, famed for its comfy confines and sizable tequila collection.
