The highly anticipated Canteen Modern Tequila Bar is a hip, modern approach to the Mexican Tequila bar 

and offers 110-120 different 100% agave tequila. Our chef, a native of Mexico but French

has brought a new twist on Mexican food to Canteen. Our cocktail menu features unique cocktails such

as a Mango Serrano Margarita and traditional Mexican favorites such as the Paloma, all made with fresh

squeezed juices and muddled fruit. Canteen is a great place to grab a quick bite, entertain friends for

dinner, host a party in our semi-private dining area or socialize later in the evening.
