A Brand Packed with Over a Century of Authentic Stories and Legendary Margaritas

For 125 years, Hussong’s Cantina in Ensenada has been known as, “The bar that built a town,” frequented by gunslingers, movie stars, revolutionaries and it has even seen a horse or two darken its doorways. The Margarita was invented at Hussong’s back in October 1941 by bartender Don Carlos Orozco. He concocted the perfect mixture of equal parts Tequila, Damiana, and lime, served over ice in a salt-rimmed glass for Margarita Henkel, daughter of a foreign diplomat to Mexico.

Not too many people know that, but it’s the truth. The story is on record in the Ensenada Historical Society and was verified by Margarita Henkel herself a few years back. The Hussong’s family still owns and manages the cantina in Ensenada and in keeping with the Hussong’s tradition, we serve The Original Margarita hand-shaken with only fresh ingredients.

In 2009, Titan Brands bought Hussong’s Cantina across the border, offering its tasty twist on Baja Mexican cuisine, trendsetting drinks and historic Mexican surroundings. Hussong’s Las Vegas is an award-winning establishment that transcends other standard Mexican food choices.

Relish the delectable made-to-order food and wash it down with our signature Original Margarita. Guests can travel back to Mexico by soaking in the eclectic mix of pictures and memorabilia on the walls. Hussong’s Cantina combines tradition and friendly service to put a smile on every patron’s face as it conjures visions of escaping to Baja for a genuine taste of Mexico.
