If you’re looking for a unique cocktail during spooky season, Oculto 477 is a must-visit. This prohibition-style speakeasy is a reservation-only experience concealed within Tahona – a Mezcal tasting room restaurant.
Occulto 477 is located right next to the second oldest cemetery in San Diego, with you guessed it–477 graves!
You won’t find much detail about this hidden cemetery-side speakeasy online – and I wouldn’t recommend you go looking. The mystery is part of the fun!
There’s etiquette to follow and a password to enter; you’ll find all the details you need when you book your reservation.
You’ll enter a dimly lit and candle-illuminated room that’s intimate and intriguing. Each seating is limited to an hour and a half, and it’ll pass by quickly as you enjoy expertly-crafted cocktails prepared by Oculto 477’s experienced mixologists.
The cocktail-only menu is themed and intriguing, with unique takes on classic cocktails, but if you’re feeling adventurous, you should opt for the Dealer’s Choice – where you choose the spirit, style and profile and let your mixologist do the rest. Or take it one step further with the Risk It All: you’ll roll three dice that will determine your delicious cocktail fate.
Don’t wait to make your reservation – dates are available Thursdays through Sundays into mid-October, but they’ll go quickly. Book at oculto477.com.
Oculto 477 is located at 2414 San Diego Ave, San Diego, CA.
