Festive Mexican Food & Craft Drinks in Bushwick
Grab dinner at Mesa Azteca, a buzzing Mexican eatery perfect to pre-game this night of wonder and exploration. Dig into your meals in their colorful dining room or hold hands over margaritas in their backyard garden. Their frozen spicy mango margarita is a must-try for adventurous couples. The food is authentic (and very fairly portioned) so you’ll know you’ll be walking into whatever comes next with full stomachs (and hearts).
After dinner, make your way to The Johnson’s, the newer, more polished bar from the same folks who opened Welcome to the Johnson's. This modern alehouse has old-school ambitions with a contemporary mindset, offering beer, pool, and arcade games with a laid-back cafe vibe. Its earthy white and green palette, evident mid-century influence in furniture, and synthetic grass dressing the back patio make The Johnson’s seem like the lovechild of Southern California in the 1960s and a modern hipster garden party.
