Hotel Las Brisas Acapulco 1960s
The Hotel Las Brisas Acapulco, was built in 1957 about 15 minutes from the center of town. The hotel's 263 casitas, each with its own or shared plunge pool, climb up a steep, hibiscus-covered hill high above Acapulco Bay. At the base of the hill by the ocean is Club la Concha. No doubt this is where hotel guests refreshed themselves after a long day of dipping in their personal plunge pool.
This cocktail menu featured several drinks of the day, but prominently featured the Gemini 6 & 7, the Gemini 8 and Gemini 9, and in an international nod, included the Ruso Negro, celebrating the 1960s culture's fascination with space exploration.
In 2008, Las Brisas Acapulco underwent a $20 million dollar renovation. The property is managed and owned by Las Brisas Hotels & Resorts, a leading Mexican luxury hotel group with multiple properties.
