Cinco de Mayo 2014

Cinco de Mayo is all about commemorating freedom and democracy and celebrating Mexican culture and heritage… who are we kidding! Cinco de Mayo is all about gettin’ crunk while sippin’ on Sangritas, slammin’ tequilas and face planting into that bowl of nachos. We say let’s make like our friends in the know across the pond and pay homage to all the Joses and Juanitas out there, here’s where to get loco in London. Skylounge – Cuervo’s Cantina Hit this high glamour rooftop in Tower Hill to get sloshy at Jose Cuervo Tequila’s summer pop up. Drink Cuervo Mexican Mules, Palomas, Tequila Sangrias, Diablos and Frozen Margaritas till they’re coming out of your ears, you know these guys will do it right. Scoff taquitos and nachos, bean burritos and fajitas while enjoying stunning views across The City and Tower of London to a soundtrack of reggeathon, mariachi and The Gypsy Kings. We’ll see you there. 7 Pepys Street, London, EC3N 4AF Barts Chelsea’s favourite hidden bar are throwing a party of luchador proportions, with bespoke Mexican cocktails, Cabrito Tequila and Centinela Tequila galore, lucha libre masks and of course live entertainment. Get your Mexican wrestling freak on, dress up, change your name to something like wolf, attack the Mexican BBQ, sink anything with tequila in it and dance to beats provided by Senor Miguel ‘jukebox’ Moore.
