I know a handful of locals who have been eating there several times,
they liked the food and the place, itīs different than any other place in town.
itīs not the cheapest place, they serve beer and wine,
at least they did last time I was there maybe a year ago.

NO BUENO , si.
" it actually rates pretty high on Facebook, Yelp and Tripadvisor" What ! WoW ! that makes me wonder what those people eat and drink
To water down booze when the mix costs more than the cheap stuff they decant into name brand bottles is nuts, the food although edible is way more $ than any 5th ave fare. IMO almost anywhere else will give you a better dinning experience for a better price.

I was there Saturday for the first time. I described it as a unique artist haven, resturant and bar. The drinks were good, we did not eat, nor would I. Others I know have enjoyed meals there. It would fit well into the odd and usual category. It is room after room of very busy interesting art work and collectables. Some of the art work people may find disturbing or offensive. Personally I enjoyed the singer, the owner and having a look around.

That really can't be done as liquor bottles sold in Mexico have a special built in pour spout that is very very hard to remove, and I would say impossible to remove in one piece.

Yes, it was poured from a bottle with the plastic jigger thing removed, that was the first clue.

Either that or they purchased the bottles in the Duty Free Zone, Belize as the bottles there do not have "built it" pour spouts. If they did that and they get caught....big problemo as liquor bottles from the DFZ do not have MX tax stickers.
Or they could drill out the "pour spout" to remove and clean out the plastic pieces. Also, big problemo if they are caught.

I've bought liquor in the interior of Mexico and they don't have the plastic stopper.
