Pushing Daisies, the first-ever bar-only concept by hospitality innovator Sam Fox, will be peddling an expertly devised menu of unique, one-of-a-kind riffs on the famed Margarita, plus agave-based cocktails, large-format shareable drinks, nearly 100 tequilas and a small comida menu of perfectly curated drinking snacks.
Nashville’s spot for underground Margaritas, Pushing Daisies, is the perfect place for those seeking an interesting and engaging night out. When the wanderers of Broadway lay their eyes on the almost-secret, alluring Pushing Daisies sign, curiosity overcomes them. Subsequently, they make their way down the staircase, and the welcoming atmosphere makes itself apparent gradually.
Upon entry, guests are “transported” to the basement of an old Spanish casa in the heart of Mexico City. Opposite the stage inside is a radiant bar where friends can enjoy Margaritas alongside the latest DJ sets. The “daisy” is expressed throughout the joint in the form of floral patterns scattered across the walls and daisy-patterned penny tile encircling the bar. It’s an unexpected escape from the traditional Broadway experience where the ambience will invite guests to toast and stay awhile.
Down underneath the city, guests quickly discover one of the most impressive lists of agave aperitifs they have ever seen. Making a choice will be a bit overwhelming! Aubrey Mansene, Director of Beverages for Fox Restaurant Concepts, recommends trying fan favorites like the Mucho Matcha with 400 Canejos mezcal, matcha, yuzu sour, egg white and bamboo leaf. She also vouches for the infamous El Carajillo with Gran Centenario añejo, licor 43, cold brew, Madagascar vanilla banana and horchata crème.
The Pushing Daisies cocktail program revolves around the celebration of agave spirits with focus on the most famous cocktail in the world, the Margarita.
“We set out to introduce Nashville to what the perfect Margarita should look and taste like and from there, we introduce new flavor profiles, spirits, and creative ways to represent the drink. On this menu you’ll find multiple variations of the Margarita as well as some 20 “agave” based cocktails that span from an Old Fashioned to a Piña Colada,” adds Mansene.
The drink menu is built on the passion their team has for agave spirits. Their ambition is to exhibit how many ways these spirits can be used aside from the traditional Margarita. Which is why their menu covers a spectrum of taste profiles and has an option for each and every guest.
Pushing Daisies’ success in not brought about exclusively by these delectable drinks, however. A great deal of it stems from their emphasis on hospitality. From the time guests are greeted by the hosts, to the time they depart, every action of the staff is meant to guarantee nothing but an incredible experience!
Mansene wraps up, “We invest a lot of time and resource into training to ensure that our team members are knowledgeable professionals who can perform at the highest level and ensure that our guest experience is second to none.”
