    Everything here is delicious and the staff is super friendly! Loved the carnitas and chorizo tacos and the chilaquiles are amazing! The tres leches and churros with chocolate sauce were so delectable!

    If you're a tequila lover, you need to come here. There's a ton of different options to choose from, and the cocktails they craft are delicious. The food is also not to be missed - get the tacos!

    Delicious tequila and mezcal drinks. The food here is amazing as well. If you like 'em spicy, you'll love it here. Dark and cozy. The wait can be hit or miss, but it's worth it.

    Been here for six years, one of the hidden gems in east village. Love their Pisco drinks, best to go with chips with their special sauces

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Tamales are trending this week and at this Mexican restaurant you will find some of the best in the Big Apple. We recommend you try the amazing mole braised chicken tamales.

    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.

    Great spot for drinks with a special someone. Stick to the spicy page. Liked the Nature Boy and any of the selections with chartreuse

    This is my church. Selection of tequila/mezcal/sotol is lovingly curated. As for cocktails, decide on stirred or shaken and then just go down list. If you've never had Sherry in a drink, please try!

    Came here for drinks and the wait for the room upstairs was worth it. Love the ambiance and decor. Many many drink choices but go for the tequila/mezcal ones.

    Soak up all that booze with small plates such as chorizo-stuffed shrimp and scallops or full plates like lobster ceviche and tamales filled with mole-braised chicken. Read more

    phenomenal drink called "hit or miss" with jalapeño infused tequila... spicy and lightly sweet relative to other drinks

    One drink here and you might be ready to move to Mexico, learn Spanish, and resettle. They serve pork belly and steak, and you can drink tequila underneath a huge tarantula-shaped chandelier.

    The cocktails are visually appealing! Loved their El Piloto - mezcal, Jamaican rum & absinthe. Also loved the Jimador Shifty - basically pineapple mezcal & negra modelo.

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

    This bar currently appears on 209 different lists, and there is a reason for that. A little bit hard to spot from the street, but well worth the search!

    Amazing amazing food and drink. Pork belly and torta were both very tasty. Amor Modo was the perfect mix of tequila gin and absinthe.

    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.

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

    Nature Boy is smokey, fresh, and spicy. The chilequiles is a very generous portion. Quesadillas were also great.

    Great tequila and mezcal cocktails. The Black Star combines tequila, bourbon, ginger, cinnamon, and apple butter.

    Many many options, if you're having trouble picking one go for the Green Gloves. Delicious, colorful and strong.

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

    Don't leave without trying the cochinitas (pork belly). Or the fish tacos. Or the quesadillas. Or the chilaquiles. It's all perfect for sharing, so do it to it.

    Come for the cocktails, stay for the chilaquiles. They're a traditional Mexican hangover dish, often served at weddings if the party is still going at sunrise. Get them and preempt your hangover.

    Cute place, fun bathroom, great atmosphere, really good drinks, great service. Unfortunately, not so great food. I tried 6 dif dishes didn't like a single one. Flavorless

    The best micheladas in the City!!! (kind of like a Bloody Mary with Negro Modelo... But a million times better and so perfect for summer if you like spicy drinks).

    Huge selection of tequilas and I suggest the Change Agent if you're not a huge mezcal fan. This place brings back tequila's good name.

    Amazing drinks, and amazing Mezcal. I ate the Ceviche de langosta (lobster, passion fruit, mango, jicama) and the Chilaquiles with chorizo. EXCEPTIONAL, for real. I can't wait to go back.

    Hiding behind weird cocktail names and a surprisingly large seating area, is the perfect place for tequila, mescal and beautiful waitresses.

    Speak-easy Mexican tequila bar, emphasis on the bar, and 100's of tequilas, and they can tell you the family that made each one in Mexico. Good Margaritas, but they specialize in a variety of other dr Read more

    Probably better to grab a table, you won't get the full bar experience sitting at the bar. Pretty authentic tasting food.

    Sit at the bar and just let the bartender know what you're in the mood for. Then prep for mezcal heaven
