A Cocktail Lounge With A Rich Heritage In Puebla at La Purificadora

La Purificadora rests in the oldest section of Puebla, next to an eclectic mix of historic churches, unique sculpture gardens, and modern commercial centres.  Painstakingly designed by Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta, La Purificadora tastefully embraces its history yet still manages to deliver a sophisticated and modern hotel experience.  Natural stone from the UNESCO World Heritage site is blended with black onyx, reclaimed wood, and innovative water elements that nod to this site’s past as a water purification and bottling facility. 

On the 3rd floor terrace, visitors will find a lavish bar and pool overlooking the historic city of Puebla.   Blending monochromatic materials and open space, La Purificadora provides visitors with a very unique perspective on Mexican culture, history, and landscape.  Modern blue and purple tones are juxtaposed with earthen stone.  Guests savour delightful beverages as swimmers pass by in the glass walled swimming pool.

At the cool blue open-air bar, visitors will find a lush menu of specialty cocktails and martinis.  Many choose to spend their time relaxing upon cosy clear glass balconies with a glass full of vodka and crystal blue curacao in hand.

Between the breath taking views and the refreshing cocktails, the pool bar at La Purificadora is known for delighting its guests.  A favourite among visitors is the signature drink, the aptly named “La Purificadora.”  Combining mandarin vodka, pineapple juice and curacao, this lovely libation provides a smooth and citrusy accent to any evening.  Admire the mesmerizing blue glow from the martini glass, each accented by orange peels and cherries.
