A subterranean mezcaleria inconspicuously tucked downstairs from its sister restaurant Quiote, Todos Santos is brought to life by the imagination of Partner/Beverage Director and Chicago bar veteran Jay Schroeder (Mezcaleria Las Flores, Frontera). As a leading industry authority on mezcal, Schroeder and his staff present one of the most thorough and comprehensive selections of this agave-based spirit in the nation. Demonstrating an utmost dedication to the cultural significance and socioeconomic impact of this spirit, Todos Santos’ knowledgeable staff guides guests through a collection of over 130 rare and ethically sourced mezcals. The intimate 32 seat bar is home to a rotating menu of inventive mezcal-based cocktails, using herbs and juices from peak of the season produce, which are grown locally or in Quiote’s rooftop garden. Drinks are served in a variety of unique glassware curated through the works of local Chicago artists and markets from around the world, many of which are rimmed with flavorful house-made salt rim blends. The colorful signature vessels mimic the trademark use of ceramics found during Mexico's pre-Columbian era. With regular DJs spinning an eclectic mix of tunes, monthly guided mezcal classes and more, Todos Santos is the epitome of a modern mezcal bar, garnering the concept a TimeOut Chicago Bar Award for “Best Specialty Bar” in 2018. Located at 2456 N. California Ave (Basement Level) Chicago, IL 60647. Hours are Wednesday-Monday 5pm-2am, closed Tuesdays.
