Best Bars in Mexico City

Margarita Al Pastor: A Unique Blend

A standout on Licoreria Limantour’s menu is the Margarita Al Pastor. This signature drink showcases flavors Mexicans love while offering international visitors a unique taste experience.

This creative blend combines traditional margarita elements with unexpected ingredients like hoja santa to create a flavor profile as intriguing as it’s deliciously refreshing.

Other Cocktail Recommendations

Jamaica Mezcal: This is my second favorite cocktail in this bar after the Margarita al Pastor. This cocktail has some Hibiscus Syrup, Mezcal, Lime Juice and Agave with some Cardamome. I love the Sweet and Smokiness of the Mezcal Mixed together and its served in a Cantarito Glass which is very Mexican.

Mango/Piña: This might sound like a very fruity drink but it’s absolutely Incredible and is more spirit forward than fruity. It’s made of Mango and Pineapple Liquor mixed with Mezcal. This drink is sweet but perfectly balanced and refreshing and like I mentioned, very spirit forward.


Hundred Punch: I hate Cognac and Brandy but with this cocktail they make a quite incredible twist, the bartenders at Limantour create a Milk Punch that takes 3 days into making with some honey, passionfruit, Anis and Coconut. With these ingredients they do a cocktail clarification by adding Milk that when it makes contact with the alcohol it starts curdling and filtering some properties of the drinks making it more smooth compared to your regular Brandy Drink and lighter to drink. Simply Delicious!

Berry Collins: This cocktail is not listed in the Menu but I’m gonna give you a tip to order this cocktail. Ask the waiter or bartender if they have the ingredients to make the Berry Collins, if they say Yes, you’re in for a treat. This Cocktail is made of Vodka, a blend of all types of Berries, Cherry Grand Marnier Liquor, Simple Syrup and Lime Juice. If you like Berries as much as I do, you will love this cocktail so much.

In addition to its excellent cocktails, Limantour also has a wide selection of spirits. The bar has over 500 different types of tequila, mezcal, and rum, as well as a large selection of other spirits from around the world.

Two Limantour Bar Locations in Mexico City:

Limantour, the famous cocktail bar in Mexico City, now has a second location in the upscale neighborhood of Polanco. This new spot is smaller and more relaxed than the original, but still offers the same amazing cocktail menu and high-quality drinks. I absolutely love the park next to it called Parque Lincoln—it’s a beautiful place to hang out before or after visiting the bar. If you’re looking for a more intimate experience, I highly recommend having a drink at Limantour Polanco. The original location is great for going solo or enjoying cocktails with friends. Limantour has something for everyone, and this new addition adds even more options for a fantastic night out.
