CASA DE BANDINI
Turn your celebration into a fiesta at Casa de Bandini! Bringing Diane Powers’ famous Mexican flair to The Forum Shopping Center, Casa de Bandini’s vibrant dining rooms, heated outdoor patios, splashing fountains, festive strolling mariachis, frosty birdbath margaritas and authentic Mexican cuisine will give your guests something to rave about. Whether you’re hosting 25 or 125, Casa de Bandini’s seasoned staff are experts at special accommodations and will really “wow” on your special day.
Decorated with hand-crafted furnishings, fine Mexican folk art, and colorful hand-painted murals, your guests will feel the warmth and romance of Mexico as soon as they enter the door. For the ceremony, take your vows in front of Casa de Bandini’s historic fountain.* Long-time visitors will recognize this magnificent feature as the same one from Casa de Bandini’s original location in historic Old Town, which Powers purchased in the late 1970s during a trip to Guadalajara.
For receptions and rehearsal dinners, host your gathering on Casa de Bandini’s large patio enclosed by a lush vibrant garden of hand-selected succulents and cacti, in the grand dining room reminiscent of early California haciendas, or in the Sala de Santos surrounded by beautiful artifacts and antique hand-carved figures depicting images and representations of saints and cultural folk art from across Latin America and Mexico.
Select from an abundance of different banquet and catering menu options, including gluten-free, vegetarian and healthy dining selections made with only the finest ingredients and paired with homemade sauces using original and regional recipes. Customer favorites include entrees such as Carnitas and Casa de Bandini’s famous Tequila Lime Shrimp, and tray passed h’ordeuvres like Crispy Camarones with a chipotle aioli and mini street tacos.
In addition to its award-winning cuisine, Casa de Bandini offers an extensive collection of premium and specialty tequilas, with more than 95 varieties to choose from. The patio’s private bar can also be reserved and staffed for special occasions. Add even more festive flair with a serenaded evening by Casa de Bandini’s world-class strolling mariachi band.
Casa de Bandini is also a full-service caterer and can design custom menus for any offsite event.
