The New Cantina Agave in Northside Offers Latin-Inspired Food, Cocktails and a Late Night Menu


Cantina Agave is a new Latin-inspired dining and drinking destination in Northside. Located in the former Taqueria 251 space, the menu includes everything from tacos and margaritas to birria, chicharrones and churros. And, in addition to a massive patio and forthcoming live music, the restaurant also offers a dedicated late-night menu available everyday until close "while supplies last," they say. Current hours are 5-10 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday and 5 p.m.-2:30 a.m. Friday and Saturday.

In addition to Taco Tuesdays (where three-taco platters are $10), there's $2-off cocktails on Wednesdays, $7 margaritas on Thursdays and marg pitchers are available all week for just $28.

Cantina Agave is located at 4110 Hamilton Ave. in Northside. For more info and a full menu, visit cantinagavecincy.com.
