Situated inside and below popular restaurant Mercadito, known for having some of the best tacos in town, Double A offers an intimate setting to get better acquainted with some quality cocktails. Don’t let the gorgeous wood walls and plush leather booths confuse you for a stuffy lounge, Double A knows how to let her hair down and party. With a cocktail program crafted by famed mixologists the Tippling Bros. (Paul Tanguay and Tad Carducci), Double A features around 70 types of high-end tequilas, including a bottle of $3,000 1800 Colección. A “mixologist’s table,” like a chef’s table, sits in the middle of the action offering a first-hand look at drinks being made—until your eyes start to cross.
THE DRINK TO DRINK:
Like a classic Margarita? Go all fancy with the Double Daaisy, featuring Altos tequila reposado, lime, agave and Combier orange liqueur. While you’re at it, order two. They go down easily.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:
With only 60 seats, the lounge fills quickly so call to score a table reservation, otherwise you’ll feel in the way. Expect to get bottle service after 10p.m. on weekends.
