tacos, tequila, and whiskey.

Southwestern-inspired, Northwest constructed

Tacos with a NW flair are the house signature, locally sourced northwest ingredients served up in soft shells to pair with items from an à la carte-focused menu of traditionals like corn, chicharrones, and fresh ceviches.

The back bar is stocked with a variety of whiskey and agave selections, tens of bottles lining the shelves with a few beers and wines to round out the offerings. House selected barrels, flights, and seasonal tasting events will draw drinkers ranging from the novice to the connoisseur. This is a 21+ ONLY establishment.


Rustic northwest finishes with southern accents and vintage decorations inspire the interior, the long and narrow space making for an intimate, speakeasy sort of feel. The bar is a prominent feature immediately upon entering, spanning the length of the room, an impressive display of spirits bedecking the back wall. This is a 21+ ONLY establishment.
