As you descend the stairs into this hidden basement bar, there’s the sensation of entering a magical space where potions are created, and anything can happen.
In this atmospheric, dimly lit sanctuary, decorated with hanging plants, there’s a shamanistic vibe that draws on inspiration from pre-Hispanic Mexico, yet there’s nothing rustic about Xaman – this is a modern, upmarket setting with contemporary standards of service.
