Ensenada, Mexico landmark Hussong’s Cantina brings an approachable menu and buoyant Baja atmosphere to Las Vegas 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 appeals to every kind of crowd.
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 savors 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 introduces 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 is open from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m., seven days a week. Group reservations can be made by calling 702.632.6450
