“The entire venue is inspired by Mexican art and culture. For the design, I incorporated elements of surrealism, symbolism, and nature found in the works of the great Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo.  The custom art and murals were created to immerse our patrons in the world of true and authentic Mexican culture with a modern and eclectic twist.” – David Contreras Curiel, Owner.
