Featuring cocktails and international wines
Found on the first floor, tucked behind decorative wrought iron doors, you will find our newest amenity at Casa del Sol Inn. What once had been the gift shop and office has been skillfully renovated into our upscale Ajijic wine bar. Wine enthusiasts are excited to have a tastefully decorated and stylish venue to broaden their horizons when it comes to regional and international varietals and blends. And be sure to ask for our house specialty, a Cadillac Margarita.
Comfortable bar stools that were hand-crafted in Tonala allow guests to sit directly at the bar or gather at the adjacent, window seating. Paintings, textiles or photography from local artisans adorn the walls and add an element of whimsy or drama. You may choose to sit in the actual bar or take a bottle of wine up to the mirador to watch the sunset. If you decide to be seated in front of the fireplace in the Sala, you will find the architectural skylight and sculptures add to the ambience and make for a completely lovely place to savor a cocktail or wine with friends.
When making your reservations for dinner in Ajijic, consider meeting your companions at Casa del Sol Inn, before venturing out to dine. The wine bar is open to guests and the general public from 4:30 pm – 8:30 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Here you may enjoy a glass or bottle of fine Mexican, Italian or California wines chosen by our local sommelier, Ceci Rodriguez. Of course, fresh lime margaritas and hand-crafted mixology cocktails are served by our two bartenders, Efra and Juan. The first Wednesday of each month we host an evening of wine pairing hosted by wine makers, distributors or our sommelier. Three premium wines are accompanied by a curated menu prepared for the evening by our chef, Alex Rojas. We might feature an evening of all Nebiolos, for example, or switch it up and sample wines from a specific region or vintner. All events are advertised locally and details can always be found on our Casa del Sol Inn Facebook page.
Are you celebrating a special occasion while in Ajijic? Our wine bar and the adjacent Sala are the perfect setting for a private party. We would be thrilled to host your family and friends for a celebration of a birthday, anniversary, graduation, rehearsal dinner party or a family reunion. We can also welcome your employees for holiday festivities. Our chef will work with you to design a menu that fits your budget and your vision for the event.
We look forward to welcoming you to our stunning venue.
