EXPERIENCE THE INCREDIBLE TRANSFORMATION OF MODERN MEXICAN CUISINE.

La Urbana History

Prefix IconHISTORIA

THE STORY

La Urbana is bringing creative cocktails, sophisticated cantina-style Mexican food, and cutting-edge design to the Divisadero Corridor.

Local entrepreneur Eduardo Rallo joined forces with Mexican architect/restauranteur Juan Garduño to open a restaurant that combines the best of Mexico City with the incredible local produce and talent of the Bay Area. 

Perhaps the only thing that excites us more than contemporary Mexican cuisine is the artisanal production of Mezcal, and the La Urbana experience celebrates both in the menu and in the design. We searched through small Mexican towns for everyday pieces of furniture that would recall the country’s rural ‘tienditas,' and then invited contemporary Mexican artists to work on the furniture and the space itself.

Experience this incredible expression of modern Mexican cuisine. Aqui nos vemos! 

SOPHISTICATED CANTINA-STYLE MEXICAN FOOD THAT DRAWS ON THE BEST OF URBAN MEXICO CITY COMBINED WITH THE INCREDIBLE LOCAL INGREDIENTS AND TALENT OF THE BAY AREA.

MERCADO
URBANO

The walls: covered in a black-and-white skeletony motif. The sangria: guarded by more skeletons. And like any good garage, this one's got plenty of beers on ice. Help yourself to a bottle of Mexicali pilsner. Just put your five bucks in the dangling bucket. The skeletons are watching.

Or take over a card table and cover it with mezcal-champagne punch instead—it'll fuel a fierce domino tournament as you watch the sky darken through the open garage doors.

No. Don't watch that. Focus on the dominoes.
