A new taco-and-tequila segment is being carved out by the likes of Velvet Taco, Torchy's and Fuzzy's. Agave & Rye is also a member of that group, though with a casual-dining orientation. The showcased bar certainly looks as if it could hold its own in that world. A self-described "tequila and bourbon hall," the upstart proudly touts its New Age sensibilities; a stated core value is love, and staff are described as being "without prejudice, period."
