Madre's Owner Ivan Vasquez Prepares Neil For Cinco De Mayo


Ivan Vasquez, owner of Madre, Oaxacan Restaurant & Mezcaleria

Madre West Hollywood opened on Fairfax in November 2020. This location is a significant departure from the previous two locations – with a deep focus on embodying Oaxaca with artisan works, alongside indigenous artifacts sourced from owner Ivan Vasquez’s regular (pre-pandemic) trips to his home state. The implications here are deeper than just ensuringcopitasare authentic. Vasquez is continuing to purchase mezcal from small mezcaleros who are at risk of losing everything in this pandemic. As well, he sources all his products directly from Oaxaca.
