Remember that time Taco Bell unveiled its Cantina concept in Wicker Park and proved that boozy Mountain Dew slushies paired perfectly with Crunchwrap Supremes? Well, it's about to happen again—this time at 407 S Dearborn Street, where, according to city records and Eater, Taco Bell Cantina has applied for a liquor license. Cue mass hysteria.

The opening will mark Taco Bell's sixth city location, which includes two downtown locations at 500 W Madison Ave and 100 W Randolph St. Chicago's only other booze-friendly location of the taco chain is located in Wicker Park, where drink options include beer, wine and spiked slushies. 

The new location would be housed inside the Old Colony Building, offering a new late-night option for Loop residents and those leaving Brando's Speakeasy after a Taylor Swift karaoke session. There's no word yet on when the fast food favorite will open.
