Inferno Cantina

Mexican food by day, dancing by night



I’ve always been intrigued by Inferno Cantina (122 W. Pierpont Ave.). Maybe it’s because I’m a huge fan of tequila bars, flaming torches and, obviously, that movie Inferno starring Jean-Claude Van Damme. But in all seriousness, this downtown spot throws some damned good fiestas. Known for serving up authentic c, Inferno pulls a hefty college crowd every weekend. This is especially evident on Saturdays, hosted by DJ Erockalypze, who plays a spicy, balanced blend of hip-hop and Top 40. While you’re there, take advantage of the Tecate & tequila shot combo for a mere $5. Pics are from the Nov. 10 Snow Pants or No Pants Party. All photos by Mike Fuchs.
