11 Mexican Bars Make N. America’s 50 Best Bars List

In Dine, Playa del Carmen & Tulum by Christina Silvestri

Eleven cocktail bars across Mexico have been given the exclusive honor of being among the 50 best bars in all of North America.

The annual ranking is a prestigious list compiled by multimedia company William Reed of some of the most creative and inspiring libation concepts on the continent.

Ten bars in Mexico placed within the top 5, including Handshake Speakeasy (No. 2) and Licorería Limantour (No. 3), both in Mexico City.

In addition, two high-end cocktail establishments in Quintana Roo also made the list: Zapote in Playa del Carmen (No. 11) and Arca in Tulum (No. 37). Zapote is a love letter to the Yucatan Peninsula, marrying craft cocktails with heritage Mexican spirits, ingredients and techniques, such as the reimagined margarita with tequila, soursop juice, lemongrass, lime and chilli salt. Meanwhile, Tulum’s Arca delivers an excellent mezcal selection, as evidenced by the standout Lone Palm cocktail that flawlessly combines mezcal, hibiscus, piloncillo and chipotle syrup, lemon and chapulín salt frost.

The other incredible Mexican bars that made the list are: Baltra Bar, Mexico City (No. 7), Kaito del Valle, Mexico City (No. 13), Café de Nadie, Mexico City (No. 15), Hanky Panky, Mexico City (No. 16), Sabina Sabe, Oaxaca (No. 20), El Gallo Altanero, Guadalajara (No. 21) and Selva, Oaxaca (No. 22).

In addition to the Mexican bars, other winners in North America included 30 high-end bars in the United States, eight in Canada and one in Cuba.
