Mexico City, Mexico
Named after one of the Galápagos Islands, Baltra acts like a warm living room, as chatty groups of locals scatter themselves among the grey couches and couples huddle over light wooden coffee tables, examining the concise and approachable drinks menu. Its theme is evident in the Charles Darwin paraphernalia that hangs on the walls – think vintage maps, butterfly collections, lithographs and taxidermy. Owned by same group as The World’s 50 Best Bars regular Licorería Limantour, Baltra is the informal, relaxed sister venue with friendly service, fresh ingredients and a seasonally evolving menu, meaning there’s always something new and delightful to try.
