There are many establishments in New York City with huge tequila and mezcal collections. One of the best is this literal library of agave spirits in Midtown Manhattan—thankfully, there’s no need to keep your voice down in here. The walls are lined with spirits, including the more common tequilas and mezcals, but you can also try out the lesser-known sotol. La Biblioteca de Tequila stocks 400 different spirits and even has a tequila sommelier to help you make the right drinking decision.
THE DRINK TO DRINK:
Try the mezcal-based Cucumber Serrano Martini.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:
Customers who buy a bottle of tequila or mezcal can store it in one of the bar’s lockers for up to six months for free. Just go back and present your “library card” to retrieve the bottle again.
