Selva is an ode to the diversity and richness of local ingredients and Mexican distillates, it is a poem inspired by the flavors of Oaxaca, its corners and its lands, its people, its culture and its techniques.
Selva is a journey and its cocktails are gourmet, with a strong focus on seasonal ingredients.
We seek synergy between the innovative and the endemic, but with international style and elegance.
To talk about Selva is to talk about the past and the future in the present; about time travel, about moments that exalt the richness of cordiality, friendship and deep relaxation through spaces built to harmonize our bodies with our souls. The Selva Oaxaca Cocktail Bar project was designed by architect Claudia Turrent, environmentalist Martina D’Acosta, Jaime Muñoz and bartender Alexandra Purcaru, founder of Art Cocktail Club.
Inaugurated on March 21, 2019, Selva was so named inspired by the 15-meter painting created by painter and teacher Raúl Herrera, which is called «El manantial de las aves» (The spring of the birds) and is
Exhibited in the bar as part of the ambiance.
A little more than a year after starting this project, Selva Oaxaca Cocktail Bar was selected among the top 10 new bars in Latin America by the 2020 Spirited Awards® Regional Honoree. SELVA is the first bar in Oaxaca to appear in the list of the 10 best new bars in Latin America by Tales Of The Cocktail.
