It appears the Tequila bar coming to the Mexico pavilion at Epcot is close to completion, as it is being advertised as part of the 2009 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. From the Mexico section of the press release:

Mexico

Unlike most Mexican restaurants in the United States, you’ll not find nachos at San Angel Inn in Epcot, because, says manager Richard Debler, they are not authentic Mexican dishes. And Debler was trained in his family’s restaurant in Mexico City.

Chocolate may sound like an unorthodox ingredient to use with chicken, but the mole poblano prepared according to a San Angel Inn recipe combines chile ancho, chile passilla, green tomatoes, ground tortillas, coriander seed and 11 other spices with cocoa for a rich sauce in which chicken is simmered until tender. Fresh tortillas are made every day and filled with duck marinated with tamarind sauce and topped with avocado, pineapple and chives.

A new tequila bar adjacent in the pavilion offers a taste of 70 varieties of the popular beverage.

In Cantina de San Angel, just outside the pyramid entrance to Mexico, you can find nachos, burritos and tacos, as well as sweet churros (donuts rolled in cinnamon and powdered sugar), frozen margaritas and Mexican beer.


The bar was originally scheduled to debut in 2010, but progress has been quick since the store that previously occupied the space closed in April, as you can see in this picture. Stay tuned to WDW News Today for more information on this breaking story as it becomes available.

We ventured into the Mexican pavilion only briefly last week because I was running a little late of a dinner reservation but I could not locate the tequila bar. We kept meaning to get back but it didn't happen. Now, it's bothering me and I wish I had looked harder.

Any idea exactly where this is??

Its somewhere inside the Mexican Pavilion. Looks to be on the right side as you walk through the store.
