About Pamplona Cocktails & Tapas
Pamplona Tapas was born from the childhood dream of founder Marisol Crespo, who credits the influence of her maternal grandmother, originally from the Canary Islands, for her love of the traditional foods of Spain. From an early age, Marisol dreamed of having her own restaurant with a Spanish soul, to honor her ancestry and capture the feeling of bringing people together in a way that only great food and drink can do.
Thanks to the collaboration of Chef Errol LeBlanc, Marisol’s dream came true in Pamplona Cocktails and Tapas, with a menu of authentic Spanish tapas and dishes interpreting classic recipes from throughout the regions of Spain with the best available ingredients.
Our name, Pamplona, comes from the capital of Navarre, famous worldwide for the annual San Fermin festival, truly representing the heart of Spanish spirit.
As for tapas, the word has been much debated and tossed around to describe all kinds of things. Here at Pamplona, our recipes follow the classic small bites served in bars throughout Spain to accompany wine or other beverages, a mainstay of Spanish culture enjoyed by everyone from dignitaries and celebrities to office workers and mechanics. Friends will forever debate the best tapas and the best bodegas in which to sample them–and we love to try them all!
We are excited to share our dream with the beautiful international city of Las Vegas.
