Casa Borrega is a destination on Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard offering traditional Mexican specialties, fine agave spirits, live Latin music, catering and special events.

The bar features more than 150 tequilas and mezcals and the best margaritas in the city. The venue is housed an 1891 Greek Revival that was gutted and rebuilt using many existing features while adding salvaged architectural elements from New Orleans, Texas and Mexico. Casa Borrega is a Benefit Corporation valuing environment, social responsibility, music and culture, and urban and historical revitalization. It is certified green and socially responsible. Owners and staff are proud to be part of Boulevard’s rebirth.
