Tequila Mockingbird - Various Sites

For those of you who fancy a taste of the smoky stuff, head on over to Tequila Mockingbird. Found in Shoreditch, Tooting, Covent Garden and more, it's whipping up a stellar selection of cocktails laced with moreish mezcal.

Zapote

To pair mezcal cocktails with Mexican food from an award-winning chef? Look no further than Zapote in Shoreditch. Not only is this drinking and dining den a looker, but the unique concoctions are shaken up with pistachio foam, almond syrup and more. 

Dona Bar

A must on the mezcal scene is Dalston's Doña bar, a stunning pink and red space that's plush as they come - complete with candles, feather boas above and below the bar, and even the odd smattering of cacti. Sip your way through mexcal negronis, hibiscus-laced numbers and whole flights of the spirit while listening to live music across this inclusive space.

La Bodega Negra

La Bodega Negra is a secret speakeasy style bar with the warmth of a Mexican cantina, right in the heart of Soho. Descend the stairs past the neon 'Sex Shop' sign to enter a glowing lair full of flavourful cocktails, refreshing beer and a good selection of powerfully potent mezcals, to shot or savour.

Chamucos Clubhouse

A snug little basement bar, Chamuco's Clubhouse quickly fills up with eager drinkers wishing to try the huge range of premium tequilas and mezcals. Styled like a 'Day of the Dead' parade, think sombrero-wearing skeletons dressed like matadors, plucking at guitars, the atmosphere truly is buzzing. This devilish drinking den serves up some of the best mezcal in London along with refreshing classic cocktails and thirst quenching cervezas.

El Camion Soho

The kind of hidden gem you always dream of stumbling across, El Camion's clientèle are happy to keep it a secret. Low level lighting, a giant selection of mezcal and tequilas, late night DJs and a licence until 3am – this is the perfect recipe for a good night. As if that wasn't enough, you can even order a full meal to your table, courtesy of the restaurant upstairs.
