Gallo Pelón is a community-driven bar that honors the artistry of traditional mezcal and craft cocktails as a whole.
As our guest, we encourage you to sit back, relax, and have a look at our offerings. We know that mezcal is foreign to most and often misunderstood, so ask us anything! We’re here because we love it, and we’re eager to share our passion with you.
