Expendio Tradicion are 140 years of Chagoya´s family tradition producing mezcal translated into a space where everything is designed around the experience of tasting this drink.
The design concept was to merge the interior spaces to create a single open space, while respecting the original structure of the house and the façade, which was left intact. The bar was treated as the principal focal point of the whole space, which was harmonized with the use of materials such as recycled mezcal barrels, traditional black clay tiles, and handmade cement floor tiles, which generated local work and economic sustainability.
Expendio Tradición reinterprets traditional concepts in order to blend into the contemporary lifestyle of the Oaxaca downtown and offer visitors a new experience that brings together mezcal, regional food, design and architecture.
