Creative Spaces: Mezcal Restaurant and Bar

Restaurants are one of the most basic venues to hold small parties. You can get quality food without the hassle of cooking, quick service and plenty of space to gather. When planning an outing for a group, however, it is typical to select places with simple, basic foods in order to accommodate all food preferences. This is where restaurant parties become dull. Don’t be afraid to spice up a restaurant-based event due to picky eaters. If you’re tired of set menus and simple options, add some flavor to your event by holding it at the Mezcal Restaurant and Bar in downtown San Jose!


This restaurant is breaking the barriers of boring food. Bringing fresh flavors and mastered menu items, Mezcal serves delicious Oaxacan food, a type of Mexican cuisine with bold and rich flavors. With family recipes that have been passed through generations, the restaurant specializes in three Oaxacan moles (sauces)—Estofado, Coloradito and Mole Negro—and was voted one of the “2009 Best New Restaurants” by Metro Newspaper.


Mezcal’s interior exudes a fun and energetic vibe that will liven up any event! Want to host a thank you luncheon for your co-workers or close friends? Skip the venues with boring breadbaskets and stuffy atmospheres. Mezcal is a perfect spot to take a group of people looking to enjoy good company and great food. Their outdoor patio is ideal for private events or larger groups. With a little more room, you can spread out on Mezcal’s quaint terrace while enjoying the California breeze.
