Celebrating Day of the Dead with Casa Dragones

The tequila masters share three colorful celebrations.
The colorful display connects Manhattan and San Miguel de Allende.

Mexico Week at Rockefeller Center

Casa Dragones and INTERprotección presented the “Los Dos Soles” ofrenda, created by Mexican artist and designer Daniel Valero of Mestiz, at Rockefeller Center in New York City. This altar, built in honor of lost loved ones, exists as a symbolic portal of color and design, connecting Manhattan and San Miguel de Allende.

The Altar at La Casa Dragones

The second part of the altar was unveiled in La Casa Dragones, San Miguel de Allende, the spiritual home of Casa Dragones. Both parts of the “Los Dos Soles” ofrenda reflect the beauty of the Mexican countryside and regional Mexican craftsmanship, as Mestiz worked with artists from San Miguel de Allende and surrounding areas to create the natural materials used in its design.

Día de Muertos Celebration at La Casa Dragones

The magical evening featured an artistic intervention by Mestiz throughout La Casa Dragones, an elegant pairing dinner by chef Olivier Deboise of One&Only Mandarina in Nayarit, Mexico, Day of the Dead craft cocktails by Fabiola Padilla of Bekeb in San Miguel de Allende and incredible music by Miss Mara and Alex Castro.
