CASA CALAVERA LAS VEGAS IS NOW OPEN AT VIRGIN HOTELS LAS VEGAS
The Indoor/Outdoor Mexican Culinary and Cantina Concept Also Announces Taco Tuesdays and its Happy Hour Program, Mi Casa Su Casa
Global hospitality company Hakkasan Group today announced Casa Calavera is now open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, including Mi Casa Su Casa, its daily happy hour and Taco Tuesdays, a weekly festivity celebrating the classic entrée. Casa Calavera, a Mexican culinary and cantina concept is located poolside at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, a part of the Curio Collection by Hilton™.
Casa Calavera uses authentic flavors and techniques to create its own version of contemporary Mexican cuisine. “We pull authentic flavors from the northern and western coastal regions of Mexico to create our flavor profiles” said Casa Calavera’s Chef de Cuisine Hugo Cabrera. “We use blends of regional dried peppers, spices and pastes to prepare our adobo and achiote marinades that are the foundation of our flavor profiles.” The team of talented chefs have worked in several regions of the country including Baja, Durango, Zacatecas and Nuevo Leon, which has assisted Casa Calavera in achieving its menu strategy of blending authentic regional flavors and dishes in a way that are identifiable to its guests and still have the soul of the cuisine from its origination.
Starting Monday, April 5, Casa Calavera introduces its own spin on happy hour, Mi Casa Su Casa. Available daily from 3 to 6 pm, Mi Casa Su Casa provides Las Vegas locals, tourists and hotel guests alike, $7 menu items, $20 buckets of beer and 50% off tequila and mezcal cocktails.
Then kicking off Tuesday, April 13, in celebration of everyone’s favorite culinary holiday is Taco Tuesdays. Featuring $3 and $5 tacos plus beer and drink specials, Taco Tuesdays is available all day and night every week. The Taco Tuesday menu features discounted tacos including;

About Casa Calavera
Casa Calavera is a culinary and cantina concept created by global hospitality company Hakkasan Group, featuring a relaxed open-air, feet-in-the-sand atmosphere and interiors that feature traditional Mexican calavera art and an authentic Día de los Muertos theme at its core. Casa Calavera creatively combines authentic Mexican cooking techniques, recipes, and ingredients with contemporary, innovative and sophisticated twists. Authentic furniture pieces and candelabras nod to old-world Mexico with an array of architectural finishes, including Mexican tiles, pebbles and stacked stone. Enter the restaurant via a corridor with altars tucked into niches that pay homage to its namesake – creating a dramatic sense of arrival and set the tone for this fun and energetic yet curiously mysterious venue that will take you back in time to historic Mexico. Casa Calavera Los Cabos opened in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico in early 2018, then followed in 2020 by a first-of-its kind virtual culinary pop-up in London. Casa Calavera Las Vegas is set to open in March 2021 inside Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.
