Agave Steps Into the Spotlight at Mezcaleria Las Flores

 

Logan Square has often been at the precipice of drink trends in Chicago. The Whistler helped pioneer craft cocktails in general, while the neighborhood garnered a reputation as a whiskey hub thanks to places like Longman & Eagle. Lost Lake put the tiki craze in the limelight, Scofflaw focused on gin and Parson’s Chicken & Fish took over the planet with its Negroni slushy a couple summers ago. Could mezcal be next?

The bar is located in a former flower shop right on the Square, alongside Johnny’s Grill, whose owner Sarah Jordan serves as partner. Coupled with Billy Sunday, Lula Cafe and Dunlay’s on the Square, this may very well be the booziest block in the neighborhood, with a little something for every taste. Walking into Mezcaleria may feel like drunkenly stumbling into a bar in Oaxaca, thanks in part to the impressive fact that Schroeder scoured Mexican markets for service ware and his transportive work with the smoky agave-based spirit.
