Mexican Eatery and Bar

The rich colors of the Mexican Riviera welcome diners to Pasadena’s signature home of authentic Mexican cuisine.  ix Tapa Cantina offers a rich variety of standard and traditional favorites, including birrias, carnitas, and pollo en mole poblano.

A large, central bar offers cold libations from an extensive menu of margarita specialties, to the daily drink specials that arrive with the daily events that call the space home, such as salsa nights, which regularly fill the floors with the exotic, or the nightlife ambiance that fills the space as the hour turns late on weekend nights.

Daytime hours find a more relaxed, convivial atmosphere, with dozens of large screens airing sporting and entertainment events. Sitting at a bustling intersection in Old Pasadena, bringing together locals, families, tourists, and the late night revelers.
