1. Mezcalería Tobalá 1816 E 6th St, Austin, TX 78702 (East Austin)

A semi-secret bar perched above Whisler's on East Sixth, the rusty, tin interior Mezcaleria Tobala is as close to Mexico as you'll come in Austin, thanks to its rare selection of sweet mezcal. You won't find any wacky cocktails here -- they really mean business, serving the smokey liquor up just the way it was intended -- straight in half or full pours with cinnamon-spiced orange slices. Non-believers are changed by the first sip.
