The main room of this cocktail bar feels like your coolest friend's house-warming party, where everybody's sitting on leather sofas, the lighting from the hanging lamps is just dim enough, and the tropical paintings on the wall were probably a gift from an up-and-coming artist pal. The mood matches their cocktails perfectly, which are served in crystal glasses and feature spirits like charanda and sotol and Mexican herbs and roots. Order the Calmante made with manzanilla-infused mezcal, agave honey, and chile liqueur. Even though you can get something with vodka, gin, or whiskey, stick with the drinks that highlight Mexican spirits to really get the full experience.

Masea is a part bakery, part tortilla and atole shop in Centro where you should swing by for a snack.
