    Great cocktails and a fun vibe. Fun throwback 90s hip hop and dancing too. Came for a birthday and loved it! Try the Smoking Gun cocktail and their spicy Tecates.

    Such a cool, underground spot in a surprising location. A little pricey for the quality though.

    HH all night long! $8 micheladas and margaritas. $4 tacos. Chicken taco is the best one. Trust me.

    Mexican restaurant with bar downstairs, great for a dance. Next to Apotheke for cocktails before!

    Apparently according to the (extremely nice) bartender this is the only pulque place in N America. Awesome food, awesomely liberal with free drinks. Highly recommended :)

    Really enjoyed the drinks here, well made creative cocktails. The music was pretty deafening in the lounge area.

  • Amanda T.

    $13-15 tacos

    Shrimp tacos and guacamole

    This subterranean Mexican can improbably - yet credibly - lay claim to being one of the most expensive restaurants in Chinatown. You're paying for the atmosphere, although the food & cocktails are 😋

    I went for my birthday with my boyfriend and had a great time. I love the interior and how it's sort of hidden. The guac was great and the drinks were tasty too.

    Decent Mexican, but a good upbeat vibe. Checkout before a big night out.

    Aside from the classic Mexican food served here, Pulqueria was the first restaurant in the city to offer offer Aztec spirit Pulque.

    Compass · April 24, 2014

    The ensalada de la casa is to die for. We were sure there was bacon in it but it's purely vegetarian. Absolutely delicious, you can't stop eating it.

    Restaurant/Club in basement. Great (but quite loud) music plays in restaurant and bar/dance floor area. Recommend: Gringo Chicken Tacos, Tacos de Camarones, Esquites. Great Margarita list!

    A great festive hideaway under Doyers St. Unique and fresh ingredients in their mixed drinks. But how many "secret" bars does C Town really need?

    Edward Gregory · January 31, 2014

    Great music. Expensive drinks. There were children here tonight....might have been the sweet 16 of the owners. Weird.

    If you come for dinner with friends you want to talk to, sit in the back. That's the quietest spot.

    You definitely want to make a reservation. It was a long wait on a rainy winter Friday night. Worth the wait, though

    The guacamole and carnita tacos are amazing! Must try!

    Lauren Navarro · December 1, 2013

    This is the entrance, go down the stairs, right next to Apotheque. Enjoy :)

    If you go for margaritas, you will be satisfied, however, don't get caught paying $16 for three corn chip fish tostadas.

    Pierce Crosby · October 4, 2013
  • Alex M.

    sashimi tuna tostada was super fresh and yummeh. but maybe it was the jalepeno margs...

    Alex Marshall · September 23, 2013

    Braised short rib tacos + jalapeño cucumber margarita = extreme happiness
