After a successful opening, early Summer 2016, Union Cantina has quickly become the highlight of Southampton’s social scene. The modern Mexican eatery, designed by Southampton Social Club owners Ian Duke and David Hilty, sits in the iconic Bowden Square and is open all year-round. Working alongside award winning Executive Chef Scott Kampf, who has been featured on Food Network’s Iron Chefs of America, the trio continues to bring innovative Mexican cuisines to Southampton throughout the year.
Little did anyone know, when visiting Union Cantina, the silent hero sits behind the 400 Rabbits Tequila Bar, which is reminiscent of a prohibition-era speakeasy. Head bartender Kyle Smith mixes fun favorites for diners that perfectly complement any meal. The tequila bar carries more than 100 types of tequila producing a unique signature cocktail program and an extensive tequila menu consisting of sangrias, punches and frozen drinks.
Popular cocktails that guests at Union Cantina favor include: The Classic Margarita blending Cabo Wabo Reposado Tequila; Frozen Margarita with fruit flavors such as mango, strawberry, passion fruit, blood orange and prickly pear; the Warren cocktail which blends 1942 Don Julio, grand marnier, centenario tequila with fresh lime juice; the Social Cooler, a Southampton Social Club classic, is a fresh watermelon puree and lime juice balancing the spices in the jalapeno-infused Don Julio; and the 65 Mustang cocktail is a bold combination of Bullet Bourbon, pressed cider, fresh lime plus bitters and mints. These flavorful favorites, mixed and mastered by Kyle Smith and his team of bartenders, are also served at Union Cantina’s outside bar and café space.
All year-round, Union Cantina is the hotspot for lunch and dinner, and Saturdays and Sundays will feature the bottomless brunch. Guests craving Mexican, with a spin, will enjoy the Mexican Pizza topped with black beans, heirloom tomatoes, black olives layered over a Mexican cheese blend, sour cream and pico de gallo. From the Taco menu, the Langosta is fresh lobster with pico de gallo, fresh avocado and lime poblano cream. The Truffle Queso is offered on the Quesadilla menu including sliced black summer truffles in a six-cheese blend.
The Deconstructed Enchilada is a Union Cantina specialty worth every bite. There is a variation suited for all appetites including the Marinated Aracherras (skirt steak), the Robalo Rayados (striped bass), the Picante Camrones (spicy shrimp), the Pollo Tirada (pulled chicken) and Vegetales (vegetables).
Union Cantina’s festive atmosphere incorporates both the sleekness of the Hampton’s high society with the rustic beauty of Mexican culture. The dark woods are balanced by the bright cerulean colored walls, and are also decorated with Mexican artwork. Union Cantina is the hotspot all year-round for festive dining, live music and A-list celebrations!
