    Amazing margaritas, especially the Zengo, and great guacamole too. Call ahead though if you're bringing a date - if there's a private party, it can take up almost all of the seating space.

    OK, this is getting serious. Not only does this tequila and mezcal bar offer discounts on drinks and apps everyday; it also features a “reverse happy hour” Tues-Fri from 9:30 p.m. to close. Read more

    They have great happy hours from 5-8. Must try the margaritas and tacos. A good place to meet after work. The place is in a basement under zenga!

    Literally translates to the library (of tequila). Underground bar with extensive lists of tequila drinks. Opt for a sangria if you're not feeling like a tequila that day.

    Not only does this tequila and mezcal bar offer discounts on select drinks and apps every night depending on the day, it also features a “reverse happy hour” Tuesdays through Fridays from 9:30 p.m

    Great underground cocktail bar to come to for casual drinks, but be warned - the service is terrible. We still keep coming back for the Zengo Margarita though.

    Somewhat hidden bar beneath Zengo that boasts a library setting, leather couches and candlelight. Service was slow & disorganized but the guac and drinks are amazing. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    La Biblioteca serves its treats — hibiscus, strawberry and tamarind varieties, with tequila, of course — year-round. ($15 each).

    If you're a girl and tequila generally makes you cringe, try the barrel-aged tequila flight. You'll especially like the Wine and Cognac with their floral and vanilla accents. Read more

    Came for happy hour, the darkest and loudest one ever. Bar food and drinks were small and not inexpensive, friends got a table before I arrived otherwise 👎🏼

    Lighting and sound environment are pleasant, the bar staff was inattentive though. Nothing extraordinary or terrible about this place.

    Bartender could friendlier and quicker. But the tequila snowcones are great. Tamarid flavor my favorite.

    Used to be good but the management does not treat customers well. Recent, they told me the place opens at 7:00, which then became 9:00, then 11:00. This was after we ate dinner at Zengo. Why lie?
