Mezcaleria La Milagrosa – a Williamsburg speakeasy hidden behind a Mexican deli’s freezer


The hidden bar is in the back of a bodega on Havemeyer Street. It’s owned by the same people behind the fantastic Mexican joint, La Superior. If you can get in, they serve five types of Margaritas: regular, mezcal, Jamaica, guava and tamarind. The Observer, which is no longer owned by Complicit Kushner, has more:

Mezcaleria La Milagrosa is a new concept locale from Felipe Mendez, the chef and owner of Williamsburg’s La Superior and Cerveceria Havemeyer, which is located just next door. Unlike Mendez’s other restaurants, this mezcal bar is exceedingly difficult to find for those who don’t know about it—and there’s a disco ball.

Don’t expect to wander into this bodega front and former laundromat on a random weekend evening. Patrons must make reservations in advance by calling (718) 599-1499. Without phoning ahead, you could easily be locked outside that freezer door, which certainly won’t impress whoever you bring with you to try the inventive cocktails.
