This Hollywood hot spot, noted for its lively outdoor patio, its live bands and its congenial clientele whips up frozen margaritas until long after the sun sets in the West. The best of the house? Arguably, it’s the ultimate margarita, made with Casa Noble Reposita, a unique blend of fruit and organic agave nectar. Delicious, as are all the other options on a special carte. If you can’t decide, ask for the El Guapo classic and you won’t go wrong when craving this awesome alcoholic that looks like blended ice slush.
