Welcome to The Irish Times Pub - a piece of Ireland in Melbourne.
Just like its tongue-in-cheek moniker, everything about Mezcalito echoes an ironically cool, laid back vibe. Heavily inspired by the Latino street-art culture of Los Angeles, the restaurant and bar on the corner of Lonsdale Street and Tattersalls Lane in the city is constantly evolving; at Mezcalito, DJ’s work the decks, the bar and tables are built using reclaimed timber from Princes Pier and a neon Ghostbusters displaygreets you upon arrival. Take the seedy side of an Amsterdam bender and drive a donkey disco through it at full volume and you get where we are coming from. A disco mishmash of psychedelic raunch open every Friday and Saturday night with Mexican tequilas and cocktails flowing till late and food available from our big brother, the killer Mexican restaurant, Touché Hombre. A ridiculously long list of tequilas.... It's gonna get messy!! Happy hour special until 7:00 PM: $10 Tommy’s Margaritas and $5 house beer We're in the Mezcalito bar which is next door and part of the Touché Hombre restaurant.
Set at ground level above its wonderful older brother the Sherlock Holmes Tavern, is the relatively new Dr. Watson’s Bar (DWB), former site of a sandwich shop, now converted into a companion piece for its subterraneous relation. Long, rectangular, bright and airy, DWB gives workers two options to lunch/dine/gather in neat, quite typical pub surroundings with the common theme of Baker St evident. Much is done in this space, with drinking area/tables at the front, elegant english styled bar mid-field with tables and chairs to sit and dine, and small kitchen to the rear. Straightforward approach to food, good offer of imported English ales, delivered expertly by the staff in a most engaging manner. No faults here.
This is a cosy little English style pub where you get friendly while squeezing past one another. The staff are super friendly and up for a good chat when its quiet. There are also tables outside with heaters for the colder nights. We will have use of the upstairs area to ourselves which caters to about 50 pp. Drink specials TBA. Good selection of craft beers, and their pizzas and tapas are amazing.
