La Milagrosa: Through the Freezer Door, a Mezcal Bar and Listening Room

La Milagrosa (or “The Miracle” in Spanish), in Williamsburg, encompasses two concepts in one. An extension of Cerveceria Havemeyer, La Milagrosa Deli carries hard-to-find Mexican ingredients (think dried chilies, prickly pear, and moles) and serves made to order fresh-squeezed juices and coffees. The other concept is a mezcal bar and listening room, accessible through the freezer door from the deli. Make sure to have made a reservation ahead of time.

The list of mezcals and tequilas is extensive, and the drinks can be paired with ceviches

The listening room features different genres of music, with list of rotating DJs and live entertainment, enhanced by a high fidelity sound system; a vintage jukebox also offers a selection of classic 45’s. Owner Felipe Mendez (of the popular Williamsburg taqueria La Superior, and Cerveceria Havemeyer) is also a DJ—you’ll find him spinning sometimes—and a drum and bass musician. 

The deli, with a counter seating 8, is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. The bar is open daily 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.
