Av. Juárez Mza. 217 Lote. 2, entre Av. 65 y 70, Colonia Ejidal, Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo 77710, Mexico

Bargoers here, a short taxi ride from Mexico’s Playa del Carmen, descend by candle-lined stairs into a subterranean lounge, trying to recall the little saying they learned as children to tell stalactites from stalagmites. Alux (pronounced “ah-LOOsh”) is spread throughout a system of caverns—the restaurant here, a bar there, the VIP lounge over there. As the night wears on you might spot an alux, one of the mythical prank-playing “little people” of Mayan lore, who are said to inhabit these caverns.

What to Order: An Aluxinante, a mix of cucumber, orange juice, and mescal.
