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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Best tequila drinks in the East Village. Order one or two and nurse them for hours. Pass on the food, though -- I've been disappointed more than once.
