Southwest Detroit's Peso Bar will finally open its doors next week.

The concept is a partnership between the Fist Of Curry/Green Dot team and the owners behind the soon-to-open Toma Detroit. They're hosting a soft opening later this week, and the restaurant opens to the public on April 22.

Peso's 25 item-menu will center around a selection of about 10 Mexican-inspired dishes. Those can be served in a California-style burrito, torta, or on a plate, and Peso will also offer four styles of traditional Mexican soups.

The restaurant has been teasing some of its cocktail roster on its social media, including a drink that's a tribute to Frida Kahlo's "Coconuts" painting made up of tequila, a citrus agave blend, coconut water, coconut, and bandera. The Federica Picosa consists of tequila, triple sec, citrus agave blend, mango, and habanero.

Peso will also offer 20 different types of margaritas, and will specialize in micheladas and cantaritos, the later of which are tequila-based drinks served in clay cups. It will also pour a line of Mexican beers on tap, some of which aren't regularly found in Detroit.

Peso is opening right down the street from a punk rock cocktail lounge at the former Our/Detroit Vodka.
