Mexico City is no stranger to theatrical speakeasies and our favorite is Jules Basement. This reservation-required bar is, in fact, in a basement, but one that can only be accessed through the door of a refrigerator in the back of a neighboring taco shop. Once you take a seat at the bar and start drinking the cocktails, you’ll realize the effort was worth it. The drinks, while not any less dramatic than the entrance, are easily among the most unique you’ll find in the city. Plus, if a mezcal cocktail served inside an iridescent skull with hickory smoke billowing from the top doesn’t sound like something you want to get involved with, you’re either lying to yourself or not the person we want to go on vacation with.
