Grand columns and draped white curtains at the entrance to Casa Merida bar in Potts Point.

From the Milpa Collective crew, Casa Merida is a cocktail bar inspired by the opulent Belle Epoque-style Coqui Coqui hotel in Merida, on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula.

It looks the part, built into a grand old terrace on Kellet Street with chandeliers, draped curtains, and an antique mirrored ceiling.

The 70-seater focuses on traditional Mexican cocktails and Mayan cuisine. To eat, it's Mayan octopus, chicken, and jackfruit tacos; spatchcock recado negro; and a signature Cochinita Pibil, which is basically suckling pig cooked al pib with frijol colado and fermented onions. 

And for drinks, you’ll be able to select from Mexican spirits, rare mezcals, and cocktails inspired by the Merida region—including an extensive list of margaritas and Latin American classic cocktails.

If you’re really into the finer things, top-tier selections of tequila exclusive to Casa Merida, like Clase Azul Ultra, 3-4-5, and Casa Dragonesare, are on offer for $300 - $400 a nip.
