Recently opening in the heart of the Sydney CBD, Londres 126 is a high-energy Mexican cantina style bar, exploring the luxurious boundaries of Mexican cuisine and mezcal.
Los Siete Misterios was founded in 2010 and brings together the passion, traditions and culture of the founders’ Mexican roots to inspire a liquid that seeks to revive the past and integrate it with the present.
Agave spirits have never before been so in demand. Right around the country you can find bars that do more than just sling out the tequila shots and sauce the tacos — these days there’s real depth to the selections on hand and knowledgeable staff to guide you in the right direction.
