PHOENIX — Arizona-based restaurateur Sam Fox will debut his first underground margarita bar in Nashville later this year — Pushing Daisies.
After all, the English translation of the word “margarita” is “daisy.”
Fox’s very first bar concept will open directly underneath his Mexican restaurant Blanco Cocina + Cantina located at Fifth Avenue and Broadway, according to a press release.
As soon as guests make their way down the staircase to the front door of the bar, they’ll be immersed in a Spanish-themed concept that’s taken inspiration from Mexico City.
Daisies will be found all throughout the space, from the walls and seating to the tile floor surrounding the bar.
A range of drinks are set to be offered at the bar, ranging from a Carajillo with espresso-soaked vanilla liqueur, spicy signature cocktail’s like El Sancho, and unique creations like Truth Be Told, Gentle Hand and Poncho’s Bliss, created from clarified coconut milk punch, dragonfruit tea and reposado tequila, the release said.
Drinks can be enjoyed on plush and elevated banquettes near leather channeled walls and heavy curtains made of plum-colored velvet.
“Has anyone ever had a bad time while sipping a perfectly made margarita? I think that’s impossible. To prove it, we went all the way back to the beginning and guess what we found? Tequila has been the star of the show throughout history and its story proves that people have, and always will, love it,” Fox said in the release.
“At Pushing Daisies, we hope to celebrate tequila and friendship, two things that will always go together.”
We want to hear from you.
