There are plenty of reasons to have a shot of tequila every day, and at Matices Hotel de Barricas, you won’t have a reason not to. And if you’re visiting Tequila, Mexico, on account of your love for the alcoholic beverage, there’s no better place to stay than inside a giant tequila barrel.

Located at the Casa Cofradia tequila factory, Matices Hotel de Barricas offers guests the ultimate tequila experience. A type of mezcal, tequila is made from the blue agave plant, and for just $180 a night, two people can stay inside a giant tequila barrel located in the middle of a blue agave field and drink tequila just as one should when in Mexico. Each barrel contains a king-size bed as well as a large bathroom fitted with top-of-the-line amenities, including a rain shower.

Upon arrival, guests are welcomed with — what else? — tequila shots. A stay at the resort includes a tequila production tour at the factory, as well as access to hotel’s restaurant, bar, and tasting room, as well as a free shuttle service into and from town. You also get a bit of the bed and breakfast experience, as breakfast is included in your stay. If wacky lodging is exactly the kind of thing you’re looking for on your travels, wait until you see some of the over-the-top homes listed on Airbnb.

Though Fifty Mils, the bar at the Four Seasons Hotel Mexico City, doesn&rsquot yet have a World&rsquos 50 Best Bars nom, it&rsquos likely to get that accolade soon. And that&rsquos all thanks to French-born cocktail wizard Mica Rousseau, head bartender of the year-and-a-half-old drinking den that&rsquos as comfortable as it is cool. At Fifty Mils, named after every bartender&rsquos top tool, the jigger&mdashwhich measures 50 milliliters of spirits&mdashRousseau excels in creating progressive drinks that toe the line between Mexican spirits and tried-and-true classics.

Four Seasons guests can sign up for one of Rousseau&rsquos cocktail crawls, but if you&rsquod rather go it solo, here&rsquos a cheat sheet to some of Mexico City&rsquos best bars.
