from 1st – 17th November

Floral headdress, vibrant sugar skull face-paints and traditional flamboyant Mexican dress – we’re in. Pair this all with an elaborate, modern 8-course “painted black” menu and a sh*t load of margaritas and these Day of the Dead celebrations are DOWN. The menu has a continuous trend of black running through it, including the accompanying Lady in Black Margarita. BarChick’s favourite way of channelling dark spirits.

Tasting menu £80 Inclusive of one Painted Black Cocktail
