Throughout the night, guests were offered selections from the food and drink menus including: Tamales de Maiz Dulce, Ceviche Blanco Tostadas, Rajas Flatbread, Chicken Mole, Pollo Manchaca/Carne Asada Tacos and cocktails with fun names such as La La Land, Sleepless Nights, AfterGlow and more.
Excited about the new venture, Chef Alvarez stated, “I am incredibly thrilled to have partnered with Viva Hollywood as there is an inherent alignment of our philosophies, which makes our collaboration even more exciting.” He went on to say, “I look forward to sharing that harmonious experience with patrons and having them feel the love that I poured into making and curating our nutritious food menu.”
In addition to various performances and live musical acts, the restaurant has a fun piñata lounge located upstairs that can be utilized as a private event space. There are colorful piñatas hanging from the ceiling from Batman, to Elmo, to Wonder Woman and more. Viva Hollywood is a great place to entertain out of town friends and family, celebrate birthdays or just hang out and enjoy the overall, beautiful design scheme.
