With a beautiful collection of decorative art and Mexican culture with a Día de los Muertos theme and calavera skulls placed intricately throughout the restaurant and lounge, Casa Calavera serves up traditional and innovative Latin food with cocktails that complement the culinary flavors coming from the kitchen.

“We focused on margaritas, primarily,” says Hugo Moreno, vice president of restaurants for Hakkasan Group, which owns Casa and its original outpost in San José del Cabo, Mexico. “We did spins on a classic margarita along with mezcal-based margaritas which add complexity to the program. We chose mezcals that are very approachable. We did everything with a Latin spin to it, tropical-type flavors. Even the specialty cocktails that aren’t margaritas are riffs on classic tropical cocktails.”

The Hibiscus margarita was made popular at the Cabo location and is a delicious, unique blend of Patrón reposado tequila, hibiscus syrup, agave, lime and a hibiscus sparkling foam with a sprinkling of hibiscus salt. For a mezcal-based margarita, try the Piñarita with 400 Conejos mezcal, Patrón Citrónge pineapple liqueur, pineapple jam and a piña sour. “Mezcal is new for many people and we wanted it to be accessible and approachable; something a little bit different and unexpected,” Moreno says.
