For centuries, tequila has brought cordial tranquility to man, calming the nerves and freeing the soul...but what if someone figured out a way to actually make it fun?!? Just imagine! Solving that quandary with live rock, Scorpion Bar
From the Estate people, SB's a 5,000sqft tequila cantina with "the attitude of a rock bar" featuring a live music stage, 42ft white organic stone bar, red and black snakeskin furniture, wrought iron chandeliers, an entire wall affixed w/ crosses from Mexico, and enough tequilas and mezcals to have you praying for your lime. The four page, 100-bottle-deep tequila menu separates by age, starting with young Blancos (1800 Black, 30-30, Milagro) and two- to 12-month wood-barrel-aged Reposados (El Mayor, Hotel California, Cabo Wabo), then moving to year-old, oak cask-aged Anejos (El Jimador, Tres Generaciones, Trago), and finally "Specialty Tequilas" like Don Julio 1942, El Tesoro 70th Anniversary, and Patron Gran Burdeos, which, at $98 a glass, better not suck. To soak up the excess booze, they've got mains like roasted beef enchiladas w/ fresh green chili sauce, lime/cumin/garlic-marinated carne asada, and apps like jalapeno mayo & lime-rubbed corn-on-the-cobb, queso fundido w/ dry aged chorizo, and an avocado/jicama/queso fresco salad dubbed the Mexican Caesar -- et tu, Benito
If you prefer your tequila accouterments sweet, they've got desserts like "powdered cinnamon chili sugar dust"-covered churros and fried ice cream w/ shaved Mexican chocolate, which should help rouse you with excitement after all that tequila has lulled you into a Zen trance.
