Rita’s Tequila and Taqueria is a cocktail and snack spot conveniently located at the base of the Australian Mercantile Land & Finance Woolstores on Vernon Terrace in Teneriffe. Masterminded by Ollie Hansford and Alek Balodis of Siffredi’s Spaghetti Bar and Daniel Pennefather (former bar manager of Blackbird Bar & Grill), Rita’s Tequila and Taqueria is positioning itself as a go-to cocktail bar for residents of the inner north. The venue takes an informal approach to service, with a model geared less towards sit-down dining and more to impromptu visits for low-key libations. Daniel and Aleks have crafted a beverage list that features a range of signature cocktails, eight flavoured margaritas and a bunch of classic tequila-based sips, with a back-bar selection featuring between 30 and 40 skews of tequila and mezcal. Beyond cocktails, Rita’s drinks offering also includes a clutch of wines, Dos Equis on tap and Tecate tins served with lime and a salted rim. The Rita’s menu features snacks such as skewers, tostadas and empanadas, as well as a range of approximately seven tacos – including a roo tail taco and another filled with spiced tempura soft-shell Moreton Bay bug. The venue’s interior is dark and industrial-inspired, with timber and gunmetal grey tones softened by a greenhouse’s-worth of foliage. Rita’s can accomodate 70 guests without restrictions, with the spacious street-facing deck offering communal seating and high bars to go with a cluster of bar seats inside.
