There's a loose Latin theme at this little Shoreditch cocktail bar, tucked away down Ravey Street. It's a tiny spot with a soundtrack of chilled beats that get a bit funkier as the night draws in.
Beers from the USA, Mexico and Argentina feature alongside a short wine list but this place is all about the cocktails. Hemingway daiquiris, margaritas, palomas and their own 'el fenix' - a mix of Ocho tequila, agave, lime, pink grapefruit, jalapeños and raspberries - show the Latin American focus, but mai tais, manhattans and house martinis feature too. Keep an eye out for their tequila con verdita - a shot of tequila with coriander, mint, pineapple juice and fresh jalapeños.
There's no food here but, in keeping with the relaxed feel of Casita, guests are invited to order in from local takeaway spots - the menus are behind the bar.
