Pug Seal’s Edgar Allan Poe location, just off Masaryk Avenue, made a name for the brand with its funky wallpaper, geometric art and quirky details like busts of traditional Mexican alebrijes. Since its opening, Pug Seal has expanded to two other locations in Polanco (double-check your location when booking!), a spot in Coyoacán and a brand-new branch in Oaxaca City. Be sure to take some time out in the temazcal in the main garden – a type of traditional low-heat sweat lodge popular in the south of the country, though rare in Mexico City’s metropolis.
