Petty Cash sits on Beverly Blvd. beneath the (former Playa) rooftop garden stewarded by Chef John Sedlar and features urban elements such as hand-painted murals by local street artist RETNA as well as street-style graffiti art by some of Petty Cash’s kitchen staff, a back room with shuffleboard, and picnic style tables and bench seating which lend to a relaxed and playful communal dining room centered around an active bar.

A few words about El Tesoro:
THE HEART OF JALISCO
La Alteña distillery was created in 1937 by Don Felipe Camarena. He was a visionary man who saw the potential to make a great tequila, up here, in the mineral-rich highlands of Jalisco. Today, his grandson Carlos Camarena is our master distiller. Carlos still honors the traditional way Don Felipe made tequila over 80 years ago.
But most importantly, it is the care and dedication of the people at La Alteña that make El Tesoro really special. Our passion and community bond help us make a tequila that we are truly proud of.
MEET ONE OF OUR ARTISANS
Guillermo Zuñiga Meza is one of eight brothers who work at the La Alteña distillery. Members of his family, including his father, work in the fields and man the agave trucks.
Guillermo and his team work together to chop the agave piña hearts, load the ovens and maneuver our two-ton tahona stone. These are skills that Guillermo learned from his brothers. He particularly enjoys working the tahona to crush the agave fibers.
"Everything is really nice, but lowering the stone is the part I like the most. It really captivates me." Guillermo Zuñiga Meza, DISTILLERY WORKER
Guillermo is just one of the many dedicated and passionate workers at La Alteña. Each person plays an important role in the making of our tequila. Click below to discover our tequila-making process through the eyes of our artisans.
