OpenTable is currently experiencing a technical issue, and our two areas are not showing correctly outside of the Spanish language. Please change the website language setting to Spanish while booking a table to ensure that you are booking for the correct area; Handshake or Compromiso.

We are a two-level speakeasy (hidden bar) with a high-end cocktail menu. Our head bartender is Eric van Beek, from the Netherlands, and was selected as the best bartender in the world in the cocktail contest of Bacardi Legacy in 2018.

Our experience exists out of a two-level experience. Regular reservations start upstairs and then have the opportunity if they wish to experience the downstairs space. Dimmed lightning, lively atmosphere and high-quality drinks. Compromiso provides an entirely different menu than our initial upstairs experience.

* We have a tolerance of 15 minutes, if we haven't received any notification we are forced to give the table away.

    Las bebidas estan creativas, diferentes. La experiencia de entrar al lugar esta padre. Peroooo esta sobrevalorado para mi gusto…. La mayoria de la gente (incluidas) están 1-1:30 por la cantidad de reservas entonces tanta rotacion no hace que termine de darse un buen ambiente. Pero la experiencia para hacer el check vale la pena.

    My recent visit to Handshake Speakeasy left an indelible impression, solidifying its status as the world's 3rd best bar. Having explored numerous establishments on the prestigious list in 2024, Handshake Bar undoubtedly stands out for its exceptional quality and service. Upon arrival for our reservation, we were promptly seated at the bar as per our request, greeted warmly by two remarkable bartenders. Our journey through their cocktail menu was nothing short of extraordinary, with highlights including the Mini Mezcal Negroni, Fig Martini, Cacao Negroni, Butter Mushroom Old Fashioned, Orange Blossom, and Olive & Apple—all masterfully crafted and executed. What truly set Handshake apart was not just the outstanding drinks, but also the unparalleled hospitality. As we celebrated my husband's 40th birthday, the staff went above and beyond, presenting us with a delightful cake and orchestrating a heartfelt rendition of "Happy Birthday" from the entire bar. The added gesture of complimentary shots further enhanced the celebratory atmosphere. From the meticulous selection of ingredients to the impeccable service, Handshake offers a truly unique and memorable experience. I wholeheartedly recommend securing a reservation at the main bar for anyone seeking an exceptional cocktail journey. With our second reservation already booked, Handshake Bar has undoubtedly earned a permanent place on our list of must-visit destinations in Mexico City.

    I made a reservation for the first floor and the host without asked took me to a different room; downstairs. I refused to stay there, cause I want my experience on the main floor. Dealing with this situation with the host and them with the manager, definitely was a bad experience. And then I was shocked when I heard everyone was talking in English, I mean I’m ok with that, but my friend don’t speak English. And I know that detail was not a good experience on him.

    Fun experience. Glad I got the reservation. Getting into the bar is a surprise. Drinks are good, unique and well presented. The watermelon ceviche was delicious and beautifully served. I would return.

    Did not eat there. Drinks were very nice, different and topnotch but very light on alcohol content. Paying for ambience, skillfully made drinks but very light pours. Went there once, and not interested in going back.
