Every Friday night, La Mez is filled with the ambiance of craft mezcal cocktails and funky musical vibes provided by DJ UZO. This ultimate lounge has an amazing aura and a friendly environment. The lovely bartenders are experts at creating the perfect drink for you. If you like to mingle, or you’re looking for a new business partner, or you just want to have an amazing Friday night, stop by La Mez for a drink or two or three. Who counts drinks when they taste incredibly delicious!

Places to Visit:

Mercadito/La Mez (Downtown)

Since I work and am constantly in this particular locale, why not drop a line about the amazing cuisine and drinks at Mercadito/La Mez. As you enter Mercadito, you’ll find yourself in the lap of luxury, and you’ll be able to indulge in awesome Mexican tacos and mezcal cocktails. La Mez (Basement) features craft mezcal and tequila cocktails… all lit on fire! Also, every Friday DJ UZO provides you with a dose of funky beats, which means this is the pre-party spot of the year!

Sip Coffeehouse (West Town)

For those who like to be left alone in a nice cozy environment, I invite you to visit Sip Cafe in West Town. This amazing establishment has four different zones, each with its own feel. You can work on your next project, have a business lunch, or just chill with your friends and have a great time. Stop by and see for yourself… and try their signature homemade cookies!

Cerise (Virgin Hotel – Downtown)

I like being at Cerise because of the environment this place exudes. The expressive and very stylish interior design, along with one of the best rooftop views in the city, will leave you breathless. Their awesome vibes include weekly DJs who play the best house music tunes.
