We were not the only Americans packed into this place! Felt kind of like a New York City bar in that way. We loved the cocktails, and the staff was super friendly. Walked in at 9ish on a Saturday and got a table right away.

My friends and I stopped in to try some mezcal. I honestly didn’t see many other tourists there, maybe 2 other folks beside our party. I didn’t expect to stay too long but stayed for a couple hours. My friends and I tried a few...More

Even though this bar was full of Americans, it still gave off an authentic vibe! We ordered mezcal cocktails since we didn’t want to sip on straight mezcal. I recommend the aguacate cocktail. It sounds weirdo, but you can’t even taste the avocado. In fact,...More

For some reason we were under the impression that this was some sort of speakeasy. However it was not only super easy to find but pretty well trafficked by tourists. However the staff were all really friendly and knowledgeable. We got a lot of mezcal...More

Casual and small bar packed with English speaking patrons. The mezcal we tried was not the smoothest. It may help to go when not as crowded so you could receive more attentive service.

We went here after dinner and it's a very small place but with cozy lights and the highlight is the mezcal wall and the cocktails. The mezcal menu in itself is huge. They have snacks too but we didn't get to try them. The free...More

Didn’t know anything about mezcal AND traveling solo. Smart, friendly bartenders and wait staff helped me get tipsy while helping me learn about this complex, delicious drink. No brainer while in Mexico City.

No, but if you want to drink mezcal on Sunday, you can go to El Palenquito, another mezcaleria that we also have at Alvaro Obregon 39. Regards
