Cinco de Mayo!

A parade of colour, culture and rich Mexican history, we celebrate the dead with some of the best bashes in the 852. Be sure to check out Lily & Bloom together with Little Burro as their head chef whips up a culinary storm in a night of feasting and dancing, or head over to Brickhouse and take a swing at their prize-filled piñata and eat your fill of tacos! Browse Chino‘s special Mexican menu and then step it up a notch at Caliente and scoff (no judgement) more $10 tacos and drink your fill of $20 margaritas, before making your way to Boujis for tequila, tequila and you guessed it, more tequila! Trust us, the hangover will be totally worth it…
