Hermana República (the creators of Cerveza Patito) gave us a call because they wanted to open a Gastro Pub in downtown Mérida. The Hermana República franchise has grown pretty well in Mérida and Tulum, but they wanted something a little more relaxed, where you can basically have a great beer and why not? great food not so pricey in the best place to be in downtown Mérida: Santa Lucía.
Belachela is the union of the words Bela (beautiful in italian) and Chela (slang for beer in Mexico). Inspired in an Art Deco style, a very strong influence in Mérida in the XIX century, with the slogan “La vida es chela” (life is beer) we present Belachela.
