La Cuevita (Highland Park)

StarStarStarStar




Signage.



Formerly known as.



On your way into the bar, you'll first enter through a really nice looking patio (and even nicer once the sun sets).



There's another patio around the corner, behind the bar but I prefer the aforementioned patio better.



Happy Cinco de Mayo, or as I like to say, Happy Weekend to me!



Because I made it a point to arrive during their grand opening and I wanted to be  one of the first 50 peeps to mention Thrillist, we were able to enjoy $2 shots of Sino Reposado Tequila.  La Cuevita had a guy making tacos and they were free, but we left before he had a chance to set up.  But that's not why we came.



This...



...and this is why we came out here.



My Mezcalada.



PiƱaleta.



Mole Manhattan - which you can also get at their sister bar, The Thirsty Crow.  For me, this is was the best tasting cocktail of the 4 we had.



Their namesake drink, La Cuevita.  This was the easiest-drinking cocktail.  It reminded me a lot of Thirsty Crow's signature drink, both in appearance and flavor - its just a very refreshing Moscow Mule-esque beverage but with Mezcal!



It's a rather small bar when you consider the spacious room and patios.  



They had $2 Tecates to celebrate Drinko de Mayo, but if I wanted a brew it would be Green Flash Brewing Co's IPA - the one next to Schlitz?!  Wow!



Hey, what do you know, FREE TACOS on Tuesdays!
