Doña might not be London’s first bar dedicated to agave spirits, but it is one of the first led exclusively by women.

Put together by friends Thea Cumming – founder of Dangerous Don mezcal – and Lucie Massey, the brains behind Cuppa Gumbo and Slap Ya Papa, Doña is a bar oozing with femininity. Massey told db that having more bars and businesses in the drinks industry led by women makes them a safer space for all.
