Savor Our Latin and Spanish Tapas

The intoxicating smell of spices followed by clinking glasses draw you into Pepe Mesa Española, but the buzz in the air keeps you there long into the night. Our tapas bar and lounge channel the convivial spirit of a stylish taverna where plates of pintxos and your drink of choice are sampled over lively conversation and celebration. From stories to ideas to meals, everything here is made for sharing.
