LOLA Rooftop Tapas and Bar

Tepatitlan, Mexico

Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

In our travels throughout Mexico, we have been enjoying the various rooftop restaurants and bars each city might offer.

Tepatitlan (also known as "Tepa") was no exception.

We made several happy hour and dinner stops at LOLA's. It's a place you might also enjoy.

Take a look!

In order to get to the 4th floor to find LOLA Rooftop, one must enter through Hotel Estancia Real.

The reception desk to the hotel is on the right, and the elevator is on the left.

We found out one evening, after a particularly dramatic rainfall, that the elevator didn't work. The stairs were on the right before the reception desk and up the 4 floors we went!

It was great exercise and got the heart beating.

A very happening place

LOLA opens at 6pm every evening. By 7:30pm the place is packed with the beautiful people of the city of Tepa.

We mentioned before that the town is known for its beautiful women, and we want to confirm this. Gorgeous women of every age dressed to the nines came to LOLA every time we were there.

Beautiful, shapely, FUN, friendly, fashionable ladies.

Everyone seemed so happy and willing to smile and converse.

There didn't seem to be any snippy attitude or fear of speaking to strangers.

We had various weather when we visited Tepa, and this night was a spectacular display of cloud art against cerulean blue skies.

We usually arrived at LOLA early so we could grab a great seat.

Of course, every table had a fabulous view, so it was never a hardship.

One evening the four of us went to LOLA and ordered several appetizers to share.

This night, the Caesar Salad was the first course.

Salami wrapped cheese sticks with green olives and bread

This was a delicious appetizer also, served on a cutting board with various sauces on the side. The bread was fresh and chewy, like sourdough, and it was tasty dipped into the sauces.

This was a delicious Pear salad with honey mustard vinaigrette. The nuts were candied to give a great crunchy contrast.

Well done, for just $6USD.

Baguette with Pastrami and cheese, LOLA Rooftop, Tepatitlan, Mexico

Baguette with Pastrami and cheese





Billy ordered a baguette with Pastrami and cheese and it really hit the spot. Served with gherkin pickles - which is unusual for Mexico - I guess you could call our dinner a real international specialty. This sandwich ran about $4.50USD, and the beer was $1.50USD.

Pacifico, first brewed in 1900 when three Germans opened the brewery, the Cerveceria del Pacífico in Mazatlan, completes the meal.
