For nearly a decade, a small group of artists, musicians, writers, and travelers has been drinking Ilegal Mezcal, a handcrafted brand of Mexican artisanal liquor with a notorious history that includes smuggling and weeklong parties in a clandestine bar in Guatemala.
Ilegal was born out of John Rexer's bar, Café No Sé, an eclectic international watering hole in colonial Antigua, Guatemala. "Ilegal has texture and is not diluted and polluted by an industrial process," says Rexer. "It's like old hand-tooled leather versus cheap pleather. It's seductive. People from all walks of life understand the difference. It's a way of thinking and wanting to live as much as it is fine liquor."
The Ilegal Social Club is a place where music, literature, spirits & creatives coexist. Located in TriBeCa the space provides the perfect setting for intimate listening sessions, tastings, and private events of any kind that span the spectrum from intellectual to debaucherous.
