The hundreds of tequilas to choose from at Mezcal make it the place to come for margaritas or shots. The place is done up in a Mexican movie madness theme, with posters of bodacious Latinas on the walls and Mexican church candles flickering.
Across the street from the Bluebird Theater, Mezcal attracts concertgoers as well as neighborhood locals who can’t get enough of the $1 tacos after 10 p.m. Parking can be very limited on nearby side streets and along Colfax Avenue.
