Experience a modern mezcal bar
An intimate mezcal lounge, Mezcalista evokes the spirit of a modern speakeasy. Our cocktail bar was designed by Saladino Design Studios as a catacomb-like space dedicated to the ancient traditions of the revered spirit, mezcal. Guests arrive through the back of Como Como or through a discreet entrance on Miami Beach's Washington Avenue. Here, a large wooden carving of a pre-Hispanic elder greets you, a basket of agave plants balanced on his head. Copper shelves hold beautiful glass bottles of mezcal and tequila. From the foyer, guests proceed past an arched doorway draped in velvet into a seductively lit lounge with walnut banquettes upholstered in leather, carved with figures of eagles.
Behind a bar topped with black stone, a terracotta wall displays illuminated bottles of mezcal. On one side of the lounge, a velvet-draped, stone-walled tasting room provides an intimate setting for private events in Miami Beach. Mezcalista's speakeasy vibe ranges from intimate and relaxing during the week, with mezcal connoisseurs sipping attentively, to fun and exclusive on the weekends when performances from some of the world's top DJ's inspire the occasional late-night dance on the banquettes.
