Stay away if you are a gringo. They will pretend to not speak English and you will never get in. I have never taken the time to rate anything in this app before good or bad. I feel compelled after our experience to warn fellow travelers. We had a reservation, waited politely for over an hour and finally were just... More

Cool speakeasy below a taqueria. Loved walking through a refrigerator door and down some stairs into a dark small bar with bumping music. Good drinks and fun vibes.

We took an uber to Polanco and Jules Basement was totally worth the drive! We got right in (the Owner is so nice) and got seats at the bar. The woman working behind the bar was great and we loved our cocktails. They make a really cool cocktail in a little plastic bag and the fruit garnish is in the... More

We arrived yesterday for our 8:30pm reservation, but learned from the very polite staff at the restaurant that Jules Basement is closed on sundays. We made reservations, received an email confirmation, and was very disappointed. Especially since we're international visitors and were trying to celebrate my husband's birthday. We ended up having an amazing night elsewhere, but again were very... More

Coming from New York, whenever you are at a cocktail bar where the drinks are under $10 - that's a find. This spot wouldn't be out of place in the East Village, with $16 cocktails. You can make a reservation through Jules Basement's Facebook page, but they only take reservations for seats between 8-9:30 - otherwise it's first come first... More
