- No.64 The World's 50 Best Bars 2022
This female-led cocktail bar takes its name from the building it’s in, the Casa de las Brujas, or House of the Witches. That’s not where the references to witchcraft and shamanism end though – the intimate, esoteric and dimly-lit interior is the setting for a drinks offering that’s rooted in Mexican herbalism. The result is a frequently-changing cocktail list that’s both herbal led and inspired by the classics, made with an array of interesting ingredients prepared in the bar’s lab, and honouring female Latin American writers and activists. The beautifully illustrated menu features drinks such as the Naja, named for the symbol worn by Navajo people, and containing Beefeater gin infused with squash blossoms, Carpano Bianco Vermouth, Mexican corn liqueur Nixta and Fernet.
