Lolita’s Cantina will entertain you!

They are dancing in the aisles at Lolita’s Cantina and Tequila Bar.  I was invited to the VIP Press party for their opening and loved seeing Lolita’s sleek modern look.  Eric De Blasi, CEO of the Medusa group, wanted his restaurant to be different and he really succeeded.

I watched the

Mariachi band

performing on the

stage and suddenly

realized they were

not real.

Perhaps they were on film, but Eric explained, “We are the first

group anywhere in the world to use holograms.

During the 2,006 MTV Awards, Madonna was dancing with

animated gorilla holograms.  People laughed because they

thought Madonna was with the gorillas but out of the blue,

Madonna came out and everyone realized she was alone.

We offer variety with a mariachi band, professional dancers, and

during all of these sets, the DJ spins the music, and in this case

they are spinning against the hologram.

You even see the DJ in the hologram.

We play games, give

away stuff” and have a

lot of interaction.”

The DJ spins top 40

numbers, a mixture of

today’s music.  They

also have a saxophonist, bongo and conga player who plays

along with the DJ.  It is quite entertaining.

With 11,500 square feet, there is plenty of room throughout the

restaurant, lounge, two outside patios, and party room.

Lolita’s is a restaurant by day which doubles as a night club at


The happy hour

begins (4-8 pm) with

their special

appetizers at

$1-$2-and $3 as well as discounts on drinks.  Customers can

dance in the wide aisles, around the dance floor, or in the patio.

Eric compares the atmosphere with going to a club in Mexico.

“We have a fun environment all day and all night!”

I entered the busy kitchen to meet the Executive Chef Tacho

Kneeland.  Chef Tacho explained, “We wanted to duplicate the

traditional street tacos vendors sold throughout Mexico.  The

trend is to serve smaller tortillas, made fresh by hand, one by

one.  We serve one of the best tortillas in Las Vegas.”  Street taco

are not usually seen in Las Vegas, but you can find them at


Chef Tacho tantalizes your taste buds with calamari marinated

in coconut milk dusted with dried orange peel and sesame

seeds.  This sounds so good but I tried the fajitas and was thrilled

when the steaming hot platter arrived.  The 10 ounce portion of

anchote marinated chicken breast filled the platter.  When I

lifted one of the large, long pieces of chicken there was a bed of

sliced onions, green, and red peppers underneath.  Tasty and

flavorful yet not too spicy, you can ask the chefs to prepare any

of the food mild or hot.  As Chef Tacho commented, “We do

whatever the customer wants.”

Lolita's Cantina will entertain you! (Continued)

I liked the restaurant's design with plenty of sections for friends and families.  The booths are large and comfortable with one booth seating 10 people as well as tables for two.  There is a raised seating section in front of the stage.

The back patio, dining room, and lounge are perfect for private parties and wedding receptions with help from their event planners.  Lolita's already has become known as The Best New Place for birthdays and bachelorette parties' locally, voted because there is such fun and interaction.  The mariachis will sing happy birthday to you along with a bunch of other secrets Eric will not reveal.

On Fridays and Saturdays, the DJ and group play with no cover or minimum. Wednesdays and Thursdays the DJ performs alone.

Eric described his menu, "We offer five-star dining at a two-star price.  Our pricing is below $20 with entertainment and affordable drinks.  We want the locals and make sure it is affordable for everybody."  You have to come to Lolita's to see the holograms and taste the food everybody is raving about!
