Here are eight things you will love about La Cava del Tequila.
8. Cozy and Hidden
One of the great aspects of La Cava del Tequila is that not everyone knows about it. Located inside the temple at the Mexico Pavilion, many day guests aren’t aware of this hidden gem. It has a warm and welcoming atmosphere that invites guests to come and enjoy the drinks and snacks. Using the idea of a warm and inviting cellar of a hacienda, La Cava del Tequila uses glowing lights, rich leather seats and worn walls to bring to life a laid back and relaxing atmosphere.
7. Chips and Guacamole
Although this one seems simple, you won’t want to miss out on this snack. Take time to enjoy some chips and guacamole while taking in the scene and enjoying a drink.
6. Queso con Jalapeño
Wanting something a little spicier, try the queso con jalapeno. This warm cheese dip served with chips is a perfect companion to a nice drink.
5. Endless Options
With around 200 different varieties of the agave juice in numerous different styles and price ranges, guests will be amazed at the choices they have when it comes to drink selections. If you are a tequila drinker, you will love all of the choices found at La Cava del Tequila.
