It's not enough to be a charming Highland Park mescal bar anymore; you've got to offer free tacos too. La Cuevita is an early adopter of this new bar business model, and its packed Tuesday nights prove that the model works. Even if you can't make it out midweek to the dim, brick-heavy room (Little Cave in English), the weekend pours of Buffalo Trace or one of several dozen tequilas are enough to make you want to return. The sunken lighting is still as dim as ever, but the chalkboard menu (when you can read it) now ticks off the same sort of upscale bar offerings that made the owners a lot of money at their other Bigfoot Lodge haunts. The namesake La Cuevita is a popular choice with aging locals and intrepid young gentrifiers alike, with mescal meeting fresh lime and a soaking of ginger beer.
