Casa Taco & Tequila Bar is located in The Marketplace section of Tropicana Casino and Resort, just off the Boardwalk. There is a beautiful outdoor dining section facing the boards that has a real Nikki Beach-feel to it. During the warmer months it’s loaded with hibiscus plants and other tropical flowers. It’s perfect for sitting back in one of their long cocktail tables, sipping a margarita, people watch or catching some rays. The restaurant has a vibrant interior with bright oranges and greens throughout and colorful artwork on the walls consisting of bold abstract fruits or dancing skeletons representing Mexico’s “Day of the Dead.” The lively bar is filled to the ceiling with top-shelf liquors and beers.
One tequila, two tequilas, three tequilas, floor!
When you have the word “tequila” in your name, you’d better have the selection to back it up. Fortunately, Casa Taco & Tequila Bar does. With around 100 different tequilas, which are made with 100% agave, behind its bar at any time, you can pick and choose to try all the big names in the world of tequila. Casa Taco also has plenty of versions of margaritas — all with homemade ingredients. Most popular are their two signature margaritas — “El Fuego” and “Blood Orange.” The former is a perfectly spicy concoction infused with jalapeno tequila, the latter is made with a tangy blood orange puree.
Their DJ keeps the party going starting on Saturday nights.
While there’s a fun atmosphere any night of the week at Casa Taco & Tequila Bar, Saturday night is when things really get kickin’! This is when Casa’s popular house DJ, starting at 8 p.m., spins everything from upbeat Latin dance music to EDM. Tables and chairs get moved to the side, lights are dimmed and the room becomes a dance floor for folks to samba, salsa or just plain boogie until the wee hours. The nightlife scene usually gets started a little later at Casa than clubs in The Quarter, as many people tend to start off their night in The Quarter, then grab a late-night bite in The Marketplace — which also houses the popular Tony Luke’s — and wind up sticking around Casa Taco until it closes at 2 a.m. for dancing and drinks.
