“Excellent mezcal, but pricey”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Impressive collection of artisan mezcal. Menus include description and origin. Prices are high, probably because it's right on the main tourist pedestrian street.

“authentic mezcal”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

This place has a great selection of mezcal. They are knowledgeable and well versed on the varieties and splendors of mezcal. They can tell you all about the diferent types of agave while other establishments that serve mezcal do not know their agaves.
My only suggestion is to serve a bigger shot. I was disheartened by such a small portion.

Great place and great service. Mezcal variety is really nice. Music is cool and two kind of potatoes are recommendable to take a snack

“Friendly people, nice music, relaxed”
Reviewed 12 October 2013 via mobile

We had a couple of beers here a week ago, and had a really good time! The people who work here are really friendly and helpful, and it's in a great spot to see people walk by in the evenings.
