Event Information

Every media outlet from Architectural Digest to Vogue has declared that Mezcal is “having a moment” — and they’ve been declaring that for almost twenty years now. In this educational tasting of five heritage agave spirits, Lou Banks walks attendees through a Mezcal tasting that showcases a different region of Mexico with each pour. Learn about all the reasons why people continue to be drawn to Mezcal, learn some of the false narratives that make these spirits seem confusing, and uncover some of the unknown truths that make them more confusing still.

Tickets are $55 per person – each ticket includes a mezcal welcome cocktail, a tasting of five heritage agave spirits, Mexican bites, and an educational introduction to tequila’s smoking hot cousin, Mezcal!

Plus, attendees who choose to dine at The Office Bar before or after the event will receive 10% off food. Explore all our on-property dining options here.




Presenter Lou Bank has sold more copies of a single comic book than anyone else in America. He helped bring Pokémon to the masses, Star Wars to the cereal aisle, and Morimoto to the beer geeks. But for this tasting, you’re probably more interested in the fact that he founded SACRED, a 501c3 not-for-profit that helps improve quality of life in the rural Mexican communities where heritage agave spirits are made, and is the cohost of Agave Road Trip, a podcast that helps bartenders better understand agave spirits. Lou won the Golden Spirits Award from Tales of the Cocktail for his 2018 presentation, “So you think you know mezcal…?”
