This bar is named after the first independent woman to appear in the Bible. It does pour out some questionably named drinks. For example it serves the San Francisco Homeless, made with vodka, pineapple, cranberry and orange juices and lager. It is served in a bottle inside a paper bag to honor its name. This place is fun and vibrant with mural-lined walls and colorful tile countertops. In addition, it has some tasty bar food like habañero-chocolate chicken wings and Mexican-themed cheese plates.
When Licorería Limantour opened its doors, it changed the face of Mexico’s cocktail scene, which was barely starting to take off.

Limantour’s bartenders are sophisticated and well educated; they can prepare a delicious concoction from just about anything.
