Hot on the heels of their expansion news to Las Vegas at Red Rock Resort, Chicago-based Mercadito Hospitality will make its way to Station Casinos’ sister luxury resort, Green Valley Ranch Resort, with the Mercadito flagship restaurant and a Tippling Hall location, the group’s second location of its newest beverage concept. This extension will provide residents on both sides of the Vegas valley with the dining and nightlife experience that the award-winning Mercadito restaurants in Chicago and New York are known for, while introducing Tippling Hall to the neighborhood. The highly successful teams from Mercadito Hospitality and Station Casinos are thrilled to share these acclaimed concepts with locals and visitors in Henderson and Las Vegas.
With a menu that expertly blends traditional Mexican fare with creative interpretations of local and seasonal ingredients, Mercadito is modeled after the markets Chef/Partner Patricio Sandoval shopped at while growing up in his native Mexico. The food at Mercadito encompasses everything from handmade corn masa tortillas used for tacos to freshly prepared ceviches, guacamoles, and salsas. Designed for sharing, the family style meals artistically mingle the best of south-of-the-border taquerias and cantinas with local and seasonal ingredients making for an exciting and mouth-watering menu. A beverage menu designed by Mercadito Hospitality Partners/Beverage Team Tad Carducci and Paul Tanguay— the Tippling Bros.—rounds out the experience with creative variations of classic cocktails, incorporating Mexican ingredients and an extensive tequila list.
Tippling Hall first opened in Chicago and provides a spirited and comfortable atmosphere along with a beverage program designed to embrace the culture of drinking rituals from across the globe. Renowned as trendsetters in the beverage industry, the Tippling Bros. showcase a collage of beverages with innovative and creative presentations to create a temple to all things alcohol. From unique kegged cocktails to traditional brews, Tippling Hall has a drink for everyone paired with a menu of globally inspired comfort food crafted by Chef/Partner Guillermo Tellez.
