Food service is available during all business hours. Our specialties include signature margaritas, popular house made sangria, draft beers and a wide selection of scotches and tequilas. We foster a low-key environment, have outside seating -- a perfect spot to catch some rays when the weather permits or celebrate with us starting at 9pm for live music Wednesday with The Davanos, with a rotating cast of live music performers on Fridays, or Karaoke on Thursdays.History Established in 2010.El Norte Lounge is the companion location to Mr. Villa Mexican Restaurant (est. December, 2004), a neighborhood locale nestled between the U-district, Maple Leaf and Lake City. While Mr. Villa offers a more bustling, family environment, El Norte delivers a more relaxed and adult experience. Both locations serve authentic cuisine made from fresh ingredients and prepared by hand.Our name translated as "The North Lounge" is meant to describe our location as being both North Seattle/ North Lake City and north of Mr. Villa. It also has ties to our first review of Mr. Villa in 2006 whose headline read, "Mr. Villa has el norte -- of Seattle -- covered."
