Why Azul 17? Azul in English means blue which is the color of the Agave plant, the main source of Tequila and 17 is the owner's life-long lucky number.
Azul 17 is the vision of Owner, Julio Soto, a Cuban American and his wife, Lily Soto, a Mexican American. Their vision has come to life as they incorporate their appreciation for culture and exceptional tastes in food, tequila, fine wines, design and music to create the ultimate dining destination.
Azul 17 specializes in authentic Mexican cuisine and offers an immaculate collection of over 100 of the finest Tequilas for tasting and presents an array of freshly prepared international cocktails. Our team of passionate professionals is dedicated to consistently providing our guests with superior service and a memorable experience that will only leave you yearning for more!
Azul 17 specializes in contemporary authentic Mexican cuisine which essentially means that our recipes are made from scratch staying true to the authentic flavors of Mexico and our Executive Chef, Damian Portuguez, prepares dishes using the latest culinary techniques. We invite you to try our tableside guacamoles, sushi grade ceviches, delectable small plates served family style, or from our Taqueria our Mexico City street style mini hand made corn tacos, or our fabulous signature entree specials featuring Enchiladas, Chicken Mole, Certified Angus Beef steaks and fresh Seafood dishes.
Azul 17 brilliantly personifies the restaurant-lounge concept with its sophisticated offering & modern design. The contemporary decor is complete with iridescent ocean blue tiles adorning the walls & sleek white leather lounge seating areas which create a cool and inviting atmosphere, reminiscent of hot spots like South Beach.
We are very excited about bringing a refreshing vibe and dining experience to the area which we feel will allow our clients to relax, enjoy themselves and just escape for awhile without the need to catch a flight or travel into the city.
Of course, this cosmopolitan lounge would not be complete without the sensual sounds of downtempo-midtempo grooves to set the mood. Bring an open mind as our resident & guest DJs provide an eclectic mix of musical flavors that will move your mind, body & soul.
Mexican Cuisine our specialty, Tequila Lounge our distinction.
