    Top of the line Mezcal cocktails. And one of the most amazing Latinx music playlists you'll find in NYC!!

    If it's a drink made with agave you can get it here. Get adventurous and try one of the sotol cocktails.

    Reflect your inner self in a cocktail mixed with Pueblo Viejo. Ask the bartender of Mayahuel to make a Tequila Sunrise for you.

    Cocktails are good, esp for Mezcal lovers, but the upstairs seating is uncomfortable. If you can't sit at the bar, better to head elsewhere.

    Drinks are really good if you like mezcal. They don't give you enough chips to finish the $15 queso and they charge you if you ask for a few more. Super lame and a waste of cheese.

    Total date spot. Cute, cozy, but make sure your date is into tequila or it's a waste. 🍸

    Lots of room so you can find a seat on a Saturday night. Known for tequila and mezcal drinks. If you're not into full on mezcal get the sotol. Sotol is between tequila and mezcal.

    the chilaquiles are a delicious mess of corn tortilla, cheese, and chorizo (or your choice of other meat)

    Quiet and low key. Great spot for dates and small groups. Extensive cocktail menu; love trying something new each time. Limited food menu but nicely curated. I think about their fish tacos often.

    Skip the tres leches (legit: it's a dry muffin top dipped in condensed milk). Cocktails and service are great though. Would definitely go back to try an entree and *maybe* pick the churros instead.

    The premier Mezcal / Tequila bar in NYC and likely the best in the USA. If agave spirits and cocktails are your thing then you need to make a stop here. Phenomenal experience and drinks.

    Mayahuel is dedicated to the worship and preservation of agave. A mix of Mexican tile, dark wood and lots of tequila & mezcal bottles, it’s an embodiment of the most intentional of cocktail programs. Read more

    Food is decent, but overpriced. Service can be slow though, but who cares when you're there with good company and good drinks. I love La Vida Rosa, by the way. Not too strong, but refreshing.

    A great bar to have a drink with your lover or a couple of friends. Really intimate, interesting interior and great cocktails — Afternoon Delight was a great spicy, summer beer-cocktail.

    There's magic in that smoked tomatillo salsa. Every bite will mystify you more than the last. Will you ever unlock the secret? Even if not, it goes perfectly with your smokey Mezcal.
