Whisler's quietly unveiled a new mezcal bar over the weekend, and now Eater can share the name: Mezcalería Tobalá. The hidden-away upstairs bar will serve mezcals from $9 to $30 a glass on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. The menu also includes mezcal chocolates from Peruvian chocolatier Cesar Ramirez, and the traditional service of oranges and sal de gusano.
Guests can sample half pours in clay copitas or a full pour in a traditional veladora glass, which features a crucifix on the bottom. The bar will serve spirits from the following purveyors: Wahaka, Mezcal Vago, Del Maguey, Pierde Almas, Alipus, Los Nahuales, Ilegal, and Mezcal Union. Via a representative for the bar, general manager Cesar Aguilar says, "We have several economically and moderately priced mezcals to choose from, and we have others to splurge on when you want to get into some of the more rare stuff. I want to make mezcal converts out of everyone that sets foot into the bar."
