Taqueria Cañonita has a terrific happy hour, which is perfect if you’re looking for some place to go before you head out for the night in Las Vegas. Head to the Mexican restaurant inside the Venetian hotel daily between 3 and 6 p.m. or from 9 p.m. to close to snag a happy hour special, which includes $3 Modelo Especial drafts, Negra Modelo drafts and well cocktails, and $5 classic margaritas and specialty cocktails.
If you like margaritas, you’ll love the classic and original twists Taqueria Cañonita puts to theirs. Try the signature Cañonita, a mix of Patrón Silver tequila and Grand Marnier; or the fruity Fresca, which is made with mango, strawberry, cactus, watermelon, raspberry or blackberry. For a high-end margarita, splurge ($30 per glass) on the Perfecto, a mix of Patrón Gran Platinum tequila, Grand Marnier and Cointreau. And while you’re at Taqueria Cañonita for happy hour, try munching on one of its Mexican soul food appetizers, such as the Patcuaro Duck Relleno or the fantastic Pozole Verde Stew — they’ll give you a taste of the restaurant’s authentic cuisine and just might entice you to stick around for a full meal.
