Washington’s First Mezcaleria Is Open For Business, And It’s Stunning

Mezcal is an agave-based spirit that tastes similar to tequila — and it’s safe to say it’s having a moment. Mezcal cocktails are more popular than ever, with many a menu offering some creative options. Recently, one local chain decided to celebrate the spirit by opening a back bar known as a Mezcaleria in their brand new space.

If it’s been a while since you’ve been to The Matador, this is a great time to check out their new Ballard location in Seattle.
