Sensational small plates meet a vast Mezcal list at El Rey Mezcal Bar. The Mexican concept developed by mastermind Grant van Gameren is a must-try destination in Kensington Market. 

The menu features noteworthy small plates that complement the extensive Mezcal list. And we mean extensive. Van Gameren regularly sources unique small batches to add to El Ray Mezcal collection. 

Ask your server for the Feature Mezcal or try one of the House Cocktails. Some of our team members have had a few good nights at El Ray washing down insanely delectable smoked marlin with a few of their Open Window cocktails (Tequila, Mezcal, Lime, Pineapple, Chili).

If you’d like to experience the 30-seat rustic saloon, ask us for directions to Kensington Market.

Pro Tip: El Ray doesn’t take reservations. It’s first come, first served.
