    We stumbled upon this place by accident, when the wait was too long at Barrio Chino. The drink list is awesome - we loved the Hibiscus Margarita. We paired it with the shrimp tacos & the steak tacos.

    Great atmosphere! Here for cocktails; we had a variety. favorites were: spicy margarita, rose margarita and the cucumber margarita - light on the cucumber with some Serrano peppers added. Fantastic.

    A perfect first date spot. Dim lighting with a red hue. Background music, but not overpowering. Social and lively, yet private. A great selection of drinks, and small, tasty, manageable plates.

    As the name implies, they sure do know their Mexican spirit drinks, particularly mezcal. There is an extensive mezcal margarita menu with some build it yourself as well as selection of cocktails.

    Get cozy in a velvet booth at this mescal bar adorned with folk art, statuettes, masks and other mementos of the co-owners’ travels. Taste the namesake spirit in a flight of three one-ounce pours. Read more

    Rose infused mezcal margaritas are what I go here for. And I don't even like tequila. Great and intimate atmosphere. They even have an upstairs section for dinner for larger groups.

    There's a tasty margarita for everyone here. Take advantage of Happy Hour, which is all of Monday, and 5-7pm the rest of the week.

    The kitchen churns out small bites that you won't find at your standard burrito joint like melted cheese with grasshoppers and tomato, and braised lamb in a chipotle sauce. Read more

    Came here for Sunday brunch... The chips and guacamole are the best in NYC... Margaritas are handcrafted... Friendliest service. Great hidden Mexican food gem.

    The tacos de cazuela—tender stewed meats and vegetables served on a tortilla—offer a change of pace from the Puebla- and West Coast-style tacos found around town. Read more

    Mixologist Miguel Aranda creates perfectly balanced Latin cocktails with an Asian influence. You might also catch an impromptu band, burlesque, or dance performance.

    More elegant than Barrio Chino round the corner, CM has comfy seating and creative drink menu for people who like their cocktails strong and spicy.

    The cocktails are great, especially at happy hour prices, but the service could improve. The "large" guac is TEENY...skip it!

    Great environment. Tasty food. Mezcal Margaritas are the bomb. A bit expensive. Good place for a nice date.

    Another subpar Mexican spot. Decor is festive, margaritas are good (spicy cucumber!), but the food is below average and the chips and salsa are borderline embarrassing

    Owner doesn't let you take your drinks from the bar to the table... A little over priced. Chorizo queso was pretty good considering
