Why Metl?

Metl; Original Nahuatl (Aztec) word for agave

Metl Bar & Restaurant was created to combine the two things we are most passionate about; music and agave spirits.  When you decide to risk it all in life it has to be about what you love.  Metl offers a cozy and friendly setting with delicious soups, tacos, burgers, steaks and pies packed with flavor.  Most of our food items are available with gluten-free substitutions.  Along with some of the best and most affordable food in the Gaslamp we also have an outstanding collection of Tequila and Mezcals as well as Whiskeys, Local Craft Beer and Creative Craft Cocktails.  We feature live music 3 nights a week from local artists and bands.  No cover charge, 21+ when there is live music; otherwise we are all ages.  

Come check out the Gaslamp's Newest Restaurant and take a break from the ordinary corporate chains and get Metl!
