Canteen Modern Tequila Bar is opening this Thursday at 9:00PM in the expanding Mill Avenue District. I have been watching the news about what is going on and am looking forward to being there on Thursday to check the place out. I hope you’ll join me! Canteen is the creation of Mill Avenue restaurateur, Julian Wright who is behind another Mill Avenue favorite, La Bocca Pizzeria.
Julian knows Mill Avenue, and he appears to know what people are looking for in this Modern Tequila Bar creation of his. Serving up some of their unique Mexican dishes, the menu is designed to impress and make it hard for anyone to choose what to order. Speaking of choices, Canteen is said to be bringing 120 (maybe more?) tequilas and several choices of luscious margaritas to enjoy.
Located at the southwest corner of Mill and 6th Street (640 S Mill Ave) where other businesses have failed, Canteen is attempting to bring something unique and classic to the table. From what I hear, Canteen will have a modern-rustic look and feel to go with it’s one of a kind menu. One of the great additions to this space that previous occupants didn’t utilize is the addition of a large patio area that will be a great gathering spot for the tequila sipping ( or shooting ) crowds. Seriously, who in these parts doesn’t like tequila and tacos?
Speaking of crowds, I’m sure the Fall opening of the Centerpoint Towers doesn’t bother the folks at Canteen one bit. As Mill Avenue continues to make changes and as new businesses come and go, it will be interesting to see which ones thrive in the Mill Avenue District.
What: Grand Opening, Canteen Modern Tequila Bar
Where: 640 S Mill Avenue
When: Thursday, October 7th at 9:00PM
While many say the economy can only handle so many upscale establishments in a college town, there are others that are pretty happy that Julian is going to give it a shot…
