Seven CBD Venues to Visit Before and After Getting Your Culture Fix This Summer

An old garage down a service laneway doesn’t sound like a spot for a bar, but that’s exactly where this 20-person mezcal bar has took up residence in 2019. Cantina OK! is located down the non-street that is Council Place and is run by the experts behind Sydney’s favourite tequila joint, Tio’s Cerveceria. It also recently scored a spot on the 2021 World’s 50 Best Bars list — just below Maybe Sammy at 23, to be exact.

There are mezcals from regions all across Oaxaca, Michoacán and Jalisco, as well as drops of tequila, raicilla (an agave distilled spirit from Jalisco) and sotol (non-agave distilled spirit from northern Mexico). If all that sounds a bit intimating, turn to the well-trained staff, who are eager to get into the “nitty gritty” of mezcal drinking with you. But you don’t have to go high brow — the place still has the casual, laid-back Tio’s vibe where you can just pop in for a damn good margarita, too.
