“Great cocktails, great Mexican food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012 via mobile

Joe penas is tucked away down a tiny alley in gemmayze with a gorgeous little courtyard and an airy Caribbean feel to the bar/restaurant. Happy hour cocktails are incredibly well priced and the food is fresh and flavor packed.
