Buena Vida Social Club, brainchild of Street Guys Hospitality, has officially opened up in Arlington. Nestled on the third floor of La Esquina de Clarendon, guests are able to enjoy an outdoor setting that is emblematic of Acapulco, Mexico. Thanks to the retractable roof, Buena Vida Social Club can fit about 150 guests in the concepts two bars. This rooftop spot features plush seating where patrons can sip on carefully crafted cocktails. Some standouts from the libation menu include the Social Margarita, made with silver tequila, agave syrup, and lime juice, as well as the Island Juju Spritz which contains spiced rum, tamarind, simple syrup, lime juice, and club soda. The head Chef, Gerardo VIZ Lugo, has also cooked up some small plates like the Crab Molletes, Corn Empenandas, and the Beef Tartare Tostadas.
