About Us

Our mission at Tahona is to educate and give reverence to the complexity and beauty of the Mexican culture through its most iconic beverage, mezcal and to become an epicenter of mezcal culture in San Diego. Inside our space, you can enjoy amazing cocktails, have incredible Oaxacan inspired food and taste some of the best mezcals out there. Our team has selected over 120 kinds of mezcals and our tasting experiences are meant to be fun and educational.

Dining at Tahona Old Town

Join us for an unique dining experience inside our beautiful hacienda as well as on our newly opened street patio. Our menu features an amazing selection of tacos, appetizers, entrees, salads & desserts. We also feature mezcal pairings, delicious cocktails and weekly specials.

You can stay tuned with all our daily offerings by following us via Instagram: @tahonamezcal. At Tahona, we pride ourselves on sourcing ingredients as locally as possible and from the tortilla corn to the seafood, we always look for the highest quality and freshness. Chef Adrian Villarreal’s passion for native plants is reflected in the seasonal touches on our menu. His team welcome you to take a culinary journey with his chef’s tasting menu, an ever-evolving multi-course dining experience.

Rumor has it that we have a Speakeasy in the back of Tahona! Well for once, the rumors are true! Oculto 477 is the one and only hidden bar located next to a cemetery. Let the spirits guide you and join for drinks before or after your dinner reservations.

TAHONA MEZCAL SOCIETY

Mezcal has a long-standing tradition of being produced by mezcaleros to be enjoyed in their communities surrounded by friends and family. We created the Mezcal Society for that very reason. It is our hope that through this group, that not only you gain a greater understanding of what makes mezcal so special but that you will be an active member of our community. We will provide you with insider access into a society built by traditions and opportunities to connect, learn and participate!
