The Lucha Cantina is open in downtown Colorado Springs.

The Cantina, at 23 S. Tejon Street, opened Super Bowl Sunday.

The Mexican-themed restaurant replaces The Olive Branch, which closed in December after more than 30 years in business.

Mark Metzler, who owns the building and the former Olive Branch, is leasing the building to Lucha’s owner Chuck Holcomb. The Tejon Street restaurant is Holcomb’s third Colorado restaurant. Holcomb also owns the Lucha Colorado Cantina in Breckenridge and Georgetown.

The Lucha Cantina is open from 10:30 a.m. to midnight seven days a week.
