Mexico City

Brujas is named for her location: Roma Norte’s famous Casa de las Brujas, or House of the Witches. But the true alchemy is performed inside this subterranean oasis. Decked out in warm woods and plush seating, Brujas is an ideal place to catch up with friends or share a date. Led by bar manager Claudia Mendoza, the bar’s all female ‘coven’ of mixologists spread warmth via impeccable service and intoxicatingly interesting drinks.

A new entry to the list in 2023, Brujas has cemented its place in North America’s 50 Best Bars with a cocktail menu inspired by witchcraft and women, which salutes authors and activists through an array of herbal and floral libations. A bounty of botanical ingredients like sage, lavender and lemon balm find their way into the cauldron. Like her sister bar, Hanky Panky, Brujas places great emphasis on sourcing these herbs from Mexico City’s celebrated markets. The results are delightful originals such as Lenca, a tribute to Honduran indigenous champion Berta Cáceres, a blend of tequila plata infused with Arabica coffee beans, herbal Italian liqueur and vermouth. The drinks are soothing, a bit indulgent, and entirely spellbinding – like Brujas itself.
