Agave is the bustling West Village Mexican favourite restaurant and tequila bar in Manhattan, New York. At the first glance, you may misunderstand this bar because of its fancy white tablecloths. With more than 80 disparate types of tequila, the crowd here gets a little insane. Spending time here is always fun.
Angelo Sosa, a cocksure culinary artist from season 7 of Top Chef, is the owner of Anejo. He is the key person behind the success of Hell’s Kitchen restaurant and tequila speciality bar. In 2012, the margaritas of Anejo were rated best in the city by Village Voice and they have only grown in reputation.
Bar Lunatico is a cosy place where crafty cocktails and music meet. While many NYC sites dedicated to their craft have been closed, this cocktail bar has symbolized the efforts to attain back its place.

San Miguel bar has been decorated by pieces originally source from south of the border. It is Carroll Garden’s home for credible Mexican food and drinks. Apart from the menu of Mexican and Tex-Mex favourites, this bar shows a deep-dedication for agave spirits with more than 200 tequila and mezcals.

Miguel Aranda, a popular mixologist, has joined this cocktail lounge. Botanical Lab has a plentiful selection of spices and fresh local herbs, salt varietals, homemade bitters and teas from all around the world.
Los Feliz is located in the heart of the Lower East Side. This old-world café with images of modern Mexico carved into the walls is the gateway to the subterranean labyrinth of defending chambers lit by early 20th century sconces. This bar serves a wide variety of tequila and mezcals. Jalapeno margarita is worth the try as you enjoy the music in the bar.
Surprise! Here is a bonus list of some of the tequila to try out.
UWA’s Reposado is the first tequila that is aged in Speyside single malt whisky casks. It is aged for seven months in premium casks. This tequila has a sweet honey and caramel taste. Its oaky finish comes from its time in the handpicked casks. You can sip this tequila directly or serve it with cocktails.
Platinum Blanco is the tequila in its most perfect and natural form. It is punchy and spicy. Its real earthy flavour comes from the Lowland Blue Weber Agave used in this tequila. You can directly serve it over ice or in a cocktail.
Don Alvaro Blanco is a bright and crystal coloured. This white tequila is made with an artisanal procedure which makes it perfect for the fine, refined and demanding palates. Its fresh aroma and the excellent flavour is must to try on this National Tequila Day.
This Don Alvaro is one of the smoothest tequilas because of its five-years of ageing in white oak barrels. This tequila has a gold appearance and complex flavour with strong notes of oak which makes this one of the finest tequilas in the world.
The USA Spirits Ratings competition was introduced by Beverage Trade Network which organizes Spirits events worldwide. The competition aims to recognize, reward and promote spirits brands that are created to identify with and target a specific spirit drinker. The competition works on three major criteria; quality, packaging and value for money. For any brand to earn its space on a retailer’s shelf or a restaurant’s spirits list, they must be marketable and consumer driven and not just produced in the general hope it can find enough people willing to sell and buy it. This approach of USA Spirits Ratings makes the competition different from other spirits competitions.
