PIQUA — El Tequila, owned by Gustavo and Ofelia Ramirez, recently relocated to the other side of Piqua. The restaurant moved from its location at 1274 E. Ash St. to a bigger location at 5795 N. County Road 25A.
The couple’s decision to relocate came when the River Rock Bar and Grille closed and their realtor offered them the location before it even went to market. According to Gustavo, the offer could not have come at a better time as they had outgrown their previous location.
During their process of relocation, the original location of El Tequila, on Ash Street in Piqua, remained open while the couple brought their vision to life. Gustavo ordered the booths and bar stools straight from Mexico while Ofelia chose the color palette for the walls, floors and decor of the new location. The couple took on the job of painting and decorating the restaurant themselves.
The new bigger location on County Road 25A offers the business multiple opportunities including a great view of the river and its scenery, more space with two levels, a private party room that can be reserved, an outdoor seating area and a stage on the patio for live music that the couple hopes to bring to the restaurant this summer.
Gustavo and Ofelia have owned El Tequila for five years and are incredibly excited about their new location and the potential for more business and larger crowds.
The hours for the new location are Monday-Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. To make a reservation or carry out order call the restaurant at 937-916-3114.
