The menu kicks off with a selection of ‘bebidas ancestrál’ (pre-Hispanic fermented beverages) including Tepache, Nitro Pulque and Tejuino before shifting into Mírate spins on margaritas and cocktail staples like the Daiquiri and Ranch Water. Various prices; Mondays – Fridays, 5:00 pm – close, Saturdays – Sundays (weekend brunch), 11:00 am – 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm – close; 1712 N. Vermont Ave., Los Feliz, CA 90027; 323.649.7937

  • Tu Compa – Mírate’s spin on the Paloma is a can of house-made ‘squirt’ mixed with ingredients like Cascahuin 48 and Pulque. On the back of the can, guests can scan a QR code for a “secret” video game where they’ll play the role of an “agave defender.” Find a video of how it works here!
