A new “Modern Mexican” bar in San Miguel de Allende. El Pavo Real is dedicated to promoting local mezcal, wine and beer from Mexico. We also promote Mexican culture through food, art and support local NGOs.
We think there are already plenty of places in San Miguel where you can get imported beverages and listen to American music. Our vision is to create a place where locals, tourists from all over the world and resident extranjeros can enjoy latin music, refined Mexican food and support local businesses, musicians, artists and charities. As such, all of our beers, wines and of course, mezcales, will be from Mexico and as much as possible from the region of Guanajuato.
We will serve a local craft beer on tap, a first in San Miguel. Local viñeros will be represented as well as local mezcaleros. The house specialty will be the 8 mezcal cocktails and 2 flights to introduce the complexity and styles of mezcal. Our goal is to elevate the mixology scene that is starting to bud in San Miguel and our bartenders are well-versed in the art of craft cocktails.
A small selection of sharable dishes will be served. The open-concept kitchen will serve gourmet “sopes” that highlight the cuisines from several different regions in Mexico. Papas con Mole is a house specialty mixing American and Mexican flavors in a delectable dish. Mango guacamole with (optional) arrachera is another specialty.
Why the name “El Pavo Real?”
Not only is the Pavo Real important in Mexican folk art and Mayan horoscopes, it is a colorful symbol of transformation, awakening and the beauty we can achieve when we endeavor to show our true colors.
And here’s why I love the name for a bar. There’s a reason for the phrase, “proud as a peacock”. The peacock reminds us sometimes it’s totally okay to flaunt our stuff and show off our skills. The ego isn’t a bad thing, as the peacock clearly indicates. Peacock energy can remind us we are amazing and we should fan out our assets to land the opportunities we are seeking.
We invite you to come show your true colors at El Pavo Real! Te invitamos a que vengas a mostrar tus verdaderos colores en El Pavo Real!
