Neon Cactus Bar

BARCHICK SAYS

Wow. Neon Cactus - what a joint. Mercilessly, this place has spent the last five years firmly staking their claim as one of the key players of the revered Call Lane. The music selection in this place alone will stifle any plans you originally had for a fleeting visit: 90's RnB, classic hip hop meshed with some more current funkified jams and provided by a man suspended in a bird’s nest 15ft from the ground, it certainly gives the place an ‘ambiance’.

The drinks are Mexican by name and tequila by nature. They have a ridiculous selection of tequilas on offer, but it’s the little extra touches that really make this place stand out, like their adventurous self-concocted Sangritas - so good. BarChick went with the Gingerita (a gingery wash of Zen that lovingly aids you through the occasionally raw experience of a straight tequila shot).

The cocktails are great too. BarChick’s babe behind the bar suggested the Waking The Dead cocktail, and she wasn’t wrong. Sweet but not too sweet, boozy but not too boozy, it reminded BarChick of the top creamy layer of a FAB ice lolly, 90's throwback anyone? These guys are serious cocktail makers so it wouldn’t be foolish to assume that the sky’s the limit.

Hungry? Get involved with the Mexican street food, you might as well, you’re going to be here a while.
