Pepe Le moko is definitely my kind of place! Great bar food, cocktails, and great vibe.

Keep your eyes open while walking to SW 10th and SW Stark, as you can easily miss Pepe Le Moko. You step into a different world as soon as open the door. Met by a tub of Oysters on the rocks, you are quickly led down the stairs by the hostess. A small crack in the curtain allows you to see into the dark room however you don't see much. The anticipation fills your body with excitement. Once through the curtain you hear music. Tunes that you would find playing during a hot, humid Summer night in Old Havana. Behind the modest bar, a bartender hard at work. To the left, booths with vintage wall lamps - towards the back of the room, tables and chairs. Quicos are brought to your table as soon as you take your seat. The Quicos (housemade corn nuts) are a welcomed crunchy and salty precursor.

Looking over the menu of craft cocktails & food - everything sounds great! Decided on the Hotel Nacional Special (Aged rum, lime, apricot brandy, pineapple gomme, bitters) as it grabbed my attention. Later a couple of Russians made it to the table, a round of Moscow Mules made with housemade ginger-beer and served in a copper mug, was the drink of choice. The bar snacks were intriguing as well so ordered: the Hawaiian Peanuts, Shrimp Chips, and Cumin Roasted Pistachios.

All were very delicious! The cocktails are fresh, well-balanced and way too easy to drink - they pack quite a punch! The bar snacks are a great accompaniment. Shrimp chips are light and crunchy. The cumin pistachios smoky and tasty! The Hawaiian peanuts, a lovely sweet flavor to balance out the previous.

The entire experience was great! Entrance, music, ambience, drinks, food - all was top notch! Nice work Pepe! I will definitely be back!
