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.

So corny. If you want to hang out with Americans whose only Spanish is "gracias," come here! Plus 1 star for the very charming waitress who served us refreshing cocktails. Negative 258 stars for the cornball behind the bar who put our bill's change directly...More

Of the two cool bars that I visited in Mexico City (this and Hanky Panky), I think I preferred this one. It wasn't very spacious, but the special mezcal was amazing. And the mixed mezcal drink that I had was very refreshing. I think that...More

Easy to explore either on bike or foot, Condesa offers
a great variety of activities and places to visit
while admiring its neo-colonial architecture. Diverse
restaurants vary from regional to global along its
streets, while local bars even let you craft your own
beer. The urban yet relaxing vibe let visitors cycle
or stroll on the Amsterdam Circuit.

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
