We came to polanco looking for a cool bar. We were stopped at the door and told it’s an hour wait but of course if we paid the door man off we’d get in no problem. Once inside it was extremely dark and cramped. The...More

The refrigerator door is an excellent way to start the evening, downstairs is a whole other world. You forget the upstairs world for a while, it also helps there is little to none cell reception. The cocktails are to die for definitely one of the...More

Let me preface this by saying that I’m in my 30s so maybe this place is too cool for school? So maybe for a young crowd? But I love a good cocktail and I like a good bar scene. However, when you walk down into...More
