Miguel Aranda (Bar Masa, Apotheke) oversees the drinks program at this 35-seat bar below Casa Mezcal. Choose from vegetal cocktails—including ones made with herbs grown on the building's roof—like the Cucumber Bramble (velvet falernum, cucumber water, mint) and Midori Tails (gin, yuzu, edamame puree). Vintage apothecary bottles decorate the cozy underground cellar, which hosts live performances by DJ Bobby Nourmand, a fashion-world regular.
