Mark Alberto Holt is the creative owner of this Temple of Tequila north of Puerto Vallarta
Sayulita, Mexico - This charming town, a scant hour north of Puerto Vallarta, has lots going for its natives and tourists - lovely weather, a great surfing beach, excellent restaurants and shops and no high rise hotels that can hurt the laid-back ambience of this unique place. No wonder the town has received high praise in major travel publications.
What was lacking, according to local restaurateur Mark Alberto Holt, was a world-class tequila bar. And now Mark has fulfilled his dream in spades. He named it the SFT Tequila Bar - right on the lively town square and right next to the popular Sayulita Fish Taco restaurant that he and his wife, Dora, own.
Mark threw himself into this new venture with enthusiasm, creative energy and a passion for tequila. He has about 320 different tequilas on hand, but numbers aren't what the bar or Mark is about. Along with the many brands, Mark has collected great knowledge about this famous Mexican elixir and loves to share it with his customers. He has traveled frequently to the town of Tequilaand to the highlands near Guadalajara where he has found some of the finest and rarest of tequilas. A visit to the SFT Tequila Bar will leave you not only in high spirits, but, also, with a deeper understanding of this popular elixir. No wonder a local wag has dubbed Mark "The Ace of Agave" referring to the plant from which tequila derives.
ark's bar is now open for the season and he plans tequila festivals, special promotions and spirituous surprises. Check out two sites for news and pleasure - SayTequila.com and SayulitaTequilaJournal.com. The latter website is run by his amigo-in-arms, Gabbi Villarrubia, and is full of fun, facts and a bit of madness from this talented writer and tequila advocate. Salud, indeed!
