Named one of the best tequila bars of 2011 in America by USA Today, Tacos & Tequila embodies the cool modernism of Mexico City while incorporating traditional elements of Mexican style and Las Vegas flair. The color mixture of old and new creates a vivid picture of brushed aluminum, dark wood, leather, bright fabrics and colored glass. The focal point of T&T’s design is its abstract sombrero composed of 20 brushed-aluminum panels featuring thousands of laser-cut images, including two 30-foot dancing, tequila-drinking skeletons. Lit from within, the breathtaking panels stretch across the entire length of the restaurant floor and across the common area, connecting the T&T retail store and walk-up daiquiri bar.

About Restaurant Week:
Now in its fifth year, Las Vegas Restaurant Week gives restaurants in our community the opportunity to give back through the culinary arts. What began in 2007 as the vision of MGM Grand food and beverage executives David McIntyre and Scott Hamilton as a way to raise funds and awareness about Three Square Food Bank has now become one of the most anticipated weeks of the year. We are proud to report that since 2007 over 600,000 meals have been provided for those in need. All proceeds from Restaurant Week remain in Las Vegas and help Three Square in its fight to end hunger in Southern Nevada. Participating restaurants create menus for breakfast, lunch or dinner and select a donation of $4, $5, or $6 for each meal sold.
