Kol, the fine-dining restaurant from Mexican chef Santiago Lastra, won a Michelin star this year and entered the UK’s National Restaurants Awards at number 20. But we really love its downstairs mezcaleria, which serves more than 80 varieties of tequila and mezcal sourced from small-scale and independent distillers. The bar itself is an atmospheric, friendly spot that serves incredible cocktails and ‘antojitos’ as good as the Michelin-starred fare served in the restaurant upstairs. Expect to sample the likes of Orkney scallop ceviche with rhubarb; octopus tostada; and churros with chocolate mousse and pork scratching (yes, really). Pair them with a martini of Volcan blanco tequila, Dolin dry vermouth, pine distillate and cucumber.
