Regarding Salón Peter Gay. Peter Gay was a fiftyish man with a tendency to obesity who tended bar for the clients of the Porfirian society. His "salon" was a small space, with not much more room besides that needed for the bar. Peter Gay's bar was famous in the city, stocked with the bottles of all known liquors. Gay spoke two or three languages and always had on his head a red fez with a black silk tassel. Translated from www.cdmx200lugares.com
