We hit 100 degrees this weekend! Perfect timing for rising temps, El Santo Cantina + Patio Bar + Restaurant opens Friday, May 4th at 11am bringing all that Mexico has to offer to North Scottsdale.
A fiery combination of Cantina + Patio Bar + Restaurant, El Santo is built around a Mexican resort style pool and is the hottest new concept by the Old Town Group that brought us Stingray Sushi, Jimmy Woo’s, Geisha A Go Go and Spanish Fly.
We thought it was time to introduce a concept like this to the North Scottsdale area, said Greg Donnally, owner of El Santo Cantina. Fun music, food and drinks with a cantina vibe are exactly what the area needs. At El Santo it is Cinco de Mayo 365 days a year!
El Santo Cantina is approximately 25,000 square feet. The new restaurant features a Baja style menu prepared by Executive Chef Tim Fields, formerly of Chelseas Kitchen and combines spicy Mexican flavors in both cuisine and cocktails. A perfect getaway for lunch, happy hour and dinner, El Santo features a restaurant, cantina and open-air patio bar.
Outside enjoy the resort style pool and patio with Private Villas, VIP Casitas, Palapa Grande Bar, beautiful flowing waterfall and much more.
Located at 7301 E. Butherus Drive in Scottsdale, El Santo will occupy a redeveloped site that once housed notable Scottsdale establishments like Jillys American Grill.
As a special treat just before the grand opening, El Santo Cantina + Patio Bar + Restaurant will host VIP parties May 2nd and 3rd to preview the venue and raise money for various Valley charities.
