Mezcalero opened pretty quietly, but it’s quickly become one of our favorite drinking spots downtown. The place is bigger than it looks, and it has a great casual atmosphere that is hard to come by around these parts. The drinks (yes, they involve a lot of mezcal) are excellent, and if you can’t find anything you want on the menu, the bartenders will happily make you something you’ll like. We’re also not mad about their tacos and spicy guac when the munchies kick in.
