Mexico City’s fun speakeasy shows no signs of stopping. Officially members-only, ambitious gatecrashers (doll up and don’t be pushy; foreign accents not a liability) should look for a rather forlorn, seemingly late-night calle Londres sandwich shop. Are those customers and employees real? Once you’ve talked your way through the air-lock-style door to the back room, you reach a genie-bottle of a lounge, outfitted in sexy, disco style. Groups take booths and others sit at the bar where surprisingly friendly—and deeply knowledgeable—bartenders shake, stir, garnish, and ignite some of the city’s most show-stopping haute cocktaillerie. They’re happy to make your usual, but why not let go a little, allowing mixologists to add their surprising touches? A winning combo of insiders-only and everybody’s welcome.
