In terms of the menu, Chupito always delivers when it comes to crafting refreshing, unique cocktails, particularly ones that are mezcal and tequila-based. In fact, the bar was even Michelin-approved last year for offering guests a great value for the price point.

Oh, and let’s not forget the complimentary margarita shots upon entering!

For food, guests can expect an array of tasty bites and share plates, including returning faves like the tostadas de ceviche and tuna and birria tacos to new additions like the fresh oysters served with a jalapeño mignonette.

Hours & location

Chupito is now open seven days a week from 5 pm to 10 pm, and while walk-ins are always welcome, reservations are available online for groups of four or more people.

The patio can be accessed behind Cantina 189, or through the back alley of Hamilton or Homer Streets and West Hastings.
