Puebla 109This popular bar is the spot to immerse yourself in a crash course about Mexican wines and cocktails. There are 71 labels of wine from which to choose, so if you're not sure where to dive in: ask! As for the cocktails, expect plenty of tequila and mezcal options, often elaborated with smoky infusions and house-made syrups. One great option? The Smoky Margarita, which features tequila blanco, Cointreau, passionfruit smoked with eucalyptus, and a mole-salted rim.

An Alternative to Busy Maximo Bistrot
Not everyone knows it, but the chef who designed the menu for Puebla 109 is the same one in charge of the kitchen at Maximo Bistrot, one of the city's most popular restaurants, and, as a consequence, hardest to secure a seat at. Though the concept is different here--the menu does not change daily, as it does at Maximo and the overall feel is more casual--the food is still excellent and the vibe is hip; the restaurant is located within a 20th-century house that has been restored.
