Located on an expansive rooftop in the Arts District, this colorful Mexican restaurant (the original location is in Mexico City) strikes that perfect balance between fun and casual, while also being downright beautiful. What I’m trying to say is this place makes LA look like a million bucks - without trying too hard in the process. It’s the kind of place you can swing by with a few friends for some mezcal cocktails and tuna tostadas, hit a romantic date night out of the ballpark, or show off to someone who you’re trying to desperately convince to move to LA. It’s also a perfect place to eat and drink while trying to remember how to socialize.
