Avenida Álvaro Obregón 106, Roma Norte, 06700 Mexico City
As a leader in local mixology, Licorería Limantour played a crucial role in cultivating a taste for craft cocktails in Mexico City. As its approach evolves it has gone from the bar that brought cocktails to Mexico to the bar that’s bringing Mexico to cocktails – and to this year's Best Bar in Latin America, sponsored by Heering Cherry Liqueur.
Its latest menu offers drinks inspired by Latin American literary works and incorporating local spirits or liqueurs, such as the tequila based Small Town, designed to convey the sentiments of Laura Esquivel’s Like Water for Chocolate in cocktail form. The décor is Art Deco-inspired and this multi-level bar is usually packed with a lively crowd of locals and visitors.
Limantour’s success is, in large part, due to its enthusiastic team, including multiple award-winning barman José Luis León, who continues to hone his skills through hard work, find new sources of inspiration through travel and embodies the bar’s tagline: “The bar is open and so is my heart.”
