A super group of DTLV food and beverage titans are coming together for a new boutique restaurant and bar at Fergusons Downtown. Slated to open in September, Peyote is the first concept focused on elevated fare from Corner Bar Management, which runs Park On Fremont and nightlife-focused venues Commonwealth, Lucky Day Tequila & Mezcal and Discopussy nightclub.

The 3,400-square-foot restaurant will feature inventive brunch and dinner dishes. The morning menu includes items such as grilled pork belly eggs benedict, country bread French toast, and spinach and beehive cheese quiche, along with several lunch dishes. Dinner items include everything from an heirloom tomato summer squash tart and a mini shrimp toast topped with wild smoked salmon roe to BBQ kingfish and a Santa Maria tri-tip platter designed to feed up to six guests.
On the drink menu are handcrafted cocktails such as the Tea For Two made with organic vodka or small batch bourbon, lemon and ginger liqueur, fresh lemon juice, white peach and cold-brewed earl gray tea; and the El Camino made with Joven mezcal, Alpine Preserve Liqueur, passion fruit puree, fresh lime-agave sour and smoked sea salt.
Located in the former La Monja space, Peyote also boasts a colorful patio with accents painted by artist Eric Vozzola, a cactus garden and a custom 3D-mapped LED light installation by artist Keegan Arthur Olton, the artist behind Discopussy’s giant octopus tentacle light display and Lucky Day Tequila & Mezcal light canopy.
Peyote will be open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6 p.m.to 2 a.m. and Fridays through Sundays from noon to 2 a.m., with brunch served from noon to 4 p.m. on weekends.
