You think you’re walking up to this taqueria in the Marais for simple tacos and frozen margaritas at the counter. But shimmy past the barstools, and through the white door into Candelaria. It’s a dimly lit speakeasy that’s full of comfy banquettes and bar stools, and focuses on agave cocktails that may sound weird at first but work, like the Stay Puft with tequila, marshmallow, and absinthe. Because you can’t live on tequila alone, there are solid small bites, and the same barbacoa and asada-filled tacos from the taqueria up front (though they’re slightly more expensive). The music gets louder as the night goes on, and some dancing may break out—you could end up being here all night.
