11pm | My Favorite Time of Day

A really good time for me in New York City is after a long day of work. It's 11pm and the city is alive.  It never stops. It is just people, all the time, walking around. Especially when the weather is nice.

At 11pm, I go to The Daily. It is a really nice bar with a great atmosphere.

When I am done, I take my apron off, say goodbye to my crew and I want to sit down for a mezcal and enjoy what is left of the day.

The bartenders are amazing, but my favorite bartender is Nacho. He knows that I love mezcal. He puts a big piece of ice in a glass, adds some mescal, and a piece of orange with chili pepper. I just sit down and enjoy it. Amazing music. Amazing ambience. The bartenders make you feel like you are home. I just love it.
