Baltra Bar

Although this intimate bar in Mexico City’s chic Colonia Condesa has been open for nearly eight years, drinking there still feels like stumbling upon an unexpected treasure. Perhaps it’s because of its laid-back yet sophisticated atmosphere, courtesy of the mix of regulars, newcomers, and foreigners drinking there nightly. But it’s probably because the award-winning staff, led by bar director José Luis León – also of Licorería Limantour fame – keeps reinventing the menu, giving guests new reasons to come back. The latest menu, inspired by adaptation and camouflage, features creations like the Hipocampo, with nori-infused tequila, dill cordials, lime and sparkling water. It makes sense that the bar is named after one of the islands visited by Charles Darwin during his travels across the Galapagos – here, evolution is a constant. Classics are expertly and deliciously crafted, too, especially Martinis, which even have their own day: the beloved Martini Tuesdays (Martes de Martinis).
