Peter & Mara Soutiere - Proprietors
What can you say about this dynamic duo? I once heard Peter describe his wife as the boat and himself as the waterskier, I think this is fitting. With Peter’s knowledge of fine wine and Norwegian black metal, how could he not seem like a catch to the lovely and extremely business savvy Mara? Well, you know what they say about opposites, not only did these two attract, but they flourished! Their first venture, Magnolia in Lafayette, was such a success, they decided Pearl Street better suited them. Over the past eleven years, Tahona has proven itself to the West end of Pearl Street as a popular Mexican restaurant as well as a hip late night dance venue on weekend nights. Peter & Mara can be found celebrating their joie de vive with their son Ian, daughter Muriel, and hound Lemmie.
John Ryan - Manager
He can run the dining room with a smile and control the late night craziness with a calm demeanor.
Don't confuse him with the other follicly challenged manager on the floor with a goatee, that'll be Peter who is not nearly as studly as John.
He is a recent father to young Johnny, who will take control of his independence more than he knows...
Tina Troy - Bar Manager
Everyone's favorite sprite behind the bar with a perpetual smile, positive attitude, and a big heart in a little ball of joy - even amongst the occasional "challenging" late night bar patrons. She really knows her stuff about artisan tequilas & mezcals. After a short pleasant conversation with you, she can craft you the perfect marg or cocktail for your taste.
She and proprietor Peter go way back working together, to the days at Q's and the Corner Bar in The Hotel Boulderado 17 years ago. When Tahona was to open in 2006, Peter called her to bartend here, but knowing she had another gig at The Boulder Theater, he said "Tina, you have to bartend for us at least one night a week!". Well, she did one night a week for a while and here we are 11 years later and she is killing it as Bar Manager for us. We LOVE Tina, as much as WE LOVE BOULDER!!! ♥
