Westword's Description

There's magic in Mezcal's off-hours, when it's just a quiet little neighborhood spot for simple, traditional Tijuana street food in a comfy-funky atmosphere. Friday night? That's different. That's when the kids come -- backflow from the Bluebird Theater and shock troops of the local hipsterati in their weekend best -- and crowd the bar. Here, lucha libre fighters plaster the walls, and there are more tequila choices than you can shake a tamale at. The late-night menu certainly is an attraction, with a moonlit happy hour famous for more than just beer. After dinner, the folks bellying up are, as is typical along this stretch, on the younger, hipper side of things. There's also a decent amount of traffic before and after (and during set breaks from) shows at the Bluebird Theater, which is across the street. Mezcal's kitchen keeps going until 1 a.m., and after 10 p.m. it bangs out tacos at a dollar a pop in a kind of reverse happy hour that keeps the area jumping 'til long after most decent folk have gone to bed.

Merchant's Description

Built around the history of agave spirits and traditional Mexican cuisine, Mezcal is focused on the education and satisfaction of our friends and guests. The ambiance and d├ęcor was designed specifically to address the art, culture and personality of our closest neighbor South of the border.

Mezcal and its staff value its relationships with our patrons, community, vendors and culture.

    They got a early evening Happy Hour & late night Happy Hour. If you're at a show across the street at the Bluebird Theater, stop in here at set-break and do some tequila!

    Mezcal is always a good time...free monthly tequila tastings and two awesome happy hours. Cool staff and a fun crowd. Definitely one of my favorite places on the Fax!
