Catrina Tequila Bar

Meet us where tequila is the secret to life (and death)


This tequila bar gets its name and its inspiration from one of the most powerful symbols of the Día de Los Muertos.


The beautiful, tall female skeleton La Catrina is one of the most recognizable symbols of the Day of the Dead, a Mexican holiday to celebrate family members who passed over.


Often depicted wearing a fancy hat with feathers, she is a modern-day symbol of the Aztec goddess of death.


Catrina Tequila Bar owner Gisela Muñoz is proud to bring her Latin culture to Riverside, a community that this Cicero resident drove through as a child to admire the architecture of the area.


Muñoz is now the owner of a Riverside bar that we all can admire with its elegant and colorful design complete with murals and statues of the namesake Catrina.


But it’s the tequila-crafted cocktail menu that will leave you most in awe. 


The Paloma Negra with tequila, lime juice, grapefruit soda, and grapefruit is as dark in color as the name implies, but it will delight your taste buds with its fruit-forward finish.


The tequila- and mezcal-crafted cocktails are the specialty here, but you can also try a coconut or mango mojito for a refreshing twist.


A limited menu of food options is available as well. Pair your cocktail with the Mexican street taco for an authentic experience.
