TWO MULES CANTINA NOW OPEN AT RETRO-INSPIRED TEXICAN COURT Highly Anticipated Restaurant and Bar Showcases Southwestern-Inspired Dishes


IRVING, TEXAS (January 14, 2019) – Two Mules Cantina, the popular restaurant and bar within Valencia Group’s new Texican Court, is now open to the public for breakfast, dinner, happy hour and weekend brunch. Executive Chef Patrick Hildebrandt has created a delicious destination that showcases Southwestern-inspired dishes, including El Paso Eggs Benedict, Chilaquiles, Breakfast Torta, Smoked Barbacoa Mini Tostadas, Cochinita Pibil and Torta Cubana.

Breakfast is served 7 – 10 a.m. daily; brunch is 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday; and dinner is 5 – 10 p.m. daily. Happy hour at Two Mules Cantina is 4 – 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. – midnight daily. Dine inside or outside and enjoy live music most weekends. A large fireplace, specialty margaritas and Western décor with modern elements all add to the sophisticated and comfortable setting.

True to its Southwestern theme of big, bold and zesty flavors, Texican Court also has an on-site specialty tequila bar that serves up craft cocktails in a cozy firelit space. Located in the reception area adjacent to the reflecting pool, you can sample regional and rare-find tequilas with friends and colleagues. Hours are 3 – 11 p.m. daily.

“When contemplating our menu, I immediately thought of rustic, hearty and spicy food at its most satisfying,” Hildebrandt said. “Our menu, influenced by Spanish, Mexican, Native American and cowboy cultures, is a flavor powerhouse of cilantro, chilies, lime and avocado.”

Hildebrandt came to Texican Court with over a decade of first-class hospitality experience, having worked previously at Sweet Basil in Vail, Colorado, the Empty Stomach Group in San Antonio and The Hollow in Georgetown, Texas.

Texican Court has 152 retro-inspired rooms, 3,500 square feet of indoor meeting and event space, three distinct courtyards, a circular-styled pool, large wood-burning fire pits, rocking chairs, live music and more. The hotel’s design features Spanish mission-style architecture with a subtle layer of Texas, making it a unique blend of Mexican and the Lone Star State cultures.

Texican Court is offering introductory rates starting from $99 per night.For more information or to make a reservation, visit or call 833.839.4886.
