Mi Tocaya Antojeria - Chicago
Matt Frederick of Ukrainian Village’s EZ Inn handles the Mexican-inspired bar program, which features kegged cocktails including a sparkling margarita. Also featured is the “Chicana,” which Frederick describes as a sparkling, hibiscus infused take on a classic Last Word cocktail with both mezcal and gin.
Davila turned to local Chicago artists to help transform the space along historic Logan Blvd. Pilsen artists Mary Schumann and Edgar Solorzano transformed the area under the bar into a landscape featuring different succulents and cacti of Mexico. Another Chicago artist, and Logan Square resident, Jason Brammer has created an aged, stucco wall mural to give the effect of a traditional Mexican fresco. This vibrant mural references organic plants and vines indigenous to Mexico.
