Original Hussong's Cantina in Ensenada
Ensenada, Mexico landmark Hussong’s Cantina is bringing an approachable menu and buoyant Baja atmosphere to Las Vegas when it opens this January at The Shoppes at Mandalay Place located between Mandalay Bay and Luxor on the Las Vegas Strip. Whether it’s the authentic Baja cuisine, the chance to experience the unusually strong original margarita or sing along to the rock ‘n’ roll Mariachi band, Hussong’s Cantina will appeal to every kind of crowd.

“Hussong’s Cantina is a well-known rite of passage for Southern Californians,” said Scott Frost, President of Titan Nightlife Group, Inc., the developer behind the venue. “The authenticity and the vibe of the original Hussong’s will be a large component of our Vegas outpost. Our plan is to serve great food and throw the best party every night.”

Located 50 miles south of Tijuana, Mexico, the iconic bar opened in 1892. The Baja spot is the originator of the margarita and even served the likes of Marilyn Monroe. Today, it remains a destination for everyone from Ensenada locals to surfers from California, and is considered a social hub of the Baja 1000 off-road race. It’s been said that if you haven’t been to Hussong’s Cantina, you haven’t been to Mexico.

The 3,700-square-foot Vegas restaurant will savor all the charms of the original, right down to the façade, exterior signage and a replica of the rustic green and red bar. The food at Hussong’s Cantina will introduce Las Vegas locals and tourists alike to authentic Baja street fare along with signature cocktails and an impressive selection of tequila and Mexican beer.

Hussong’s Cantina will be open from 11 a.m. until 2 a.m., seven days a week. Reservations can be made by calling 702.553.0123.
