Made in Mexico
Born in the lush jungles of Mexico, Gitano stocks its shelves with the finest mezcals and tequilas from Oaxaca to Jalisco.
Every Thursday evening during Gitano's Latin X music night, connoisseurs can sample complimentary tastings of labels like Del Maguey, an artisanal mezcal brand hand-crafted by Zapotec and Mixtec farmer families, and Vago Elote, a mezcal made in a traditional alenque and distilled with roasted corn.
From 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm, flights are paired with bites of Mexican chocolate, tajin spice, and orange slices, while live DJs amp up the vibe with Latin house. “We have over 40 different types of mezcals from Mezcal Artesanal to Mezcal Ancestral,” said Danny Marquez, Gitano’s General Manager.
“There are over a thousand ways you can make a mezcal with different levels of smoke and spice. We try to feature a new one for our guests to taste every week.”
Gypsy Disco on Friday is Gitano's signature night where the cocktails flow freely. Jungle Fever and the Gitano Margarita are international classics from Tulum to New York. This Fall, a new libation will grace the menu crafted with Akul Mezcal, fresh pineapple, lime, muddled cilantro, a dash of serrano pepper, and a jicama garnish.
“There’s a free-spirited vibe where guests come for dinner, then kick their shoes off and go party on the rooftop with a live DJ,” Marquez explained.
The weekends come to life with Ceremonia on Saturday nights featuring afrobeats and house, while Sunday is dubbed Love Sensation, where people hit the dance floor with two local DJs.
“People love to get dressed up and show off. It’s all about pride and fun.”
From August 1 through September 30, come for Golden Hour (Gitano’s happy hour) and stay for the restaurant's delicious Miami Spice menu featuring dishes like Hiramasa Tostadas and Mushroom Mole Manchamanteles, which showcase punchy flavors from Executive Chef Antonio Maldonaldo’s hometown of Puebla, Mexico.
