Descend to the basement at El Camion. It’s one of those places a little off the radar, and we love it all the more for that. Day of the Dead masks embellish the walls and creaky old cupboards display hundreds of bottles of tequila. Choose from Margaritas, Batidas and classic tequila cocktails or stick with shots served with house-made Sangrita. Best of all? This dirty little dog is open until 3am for members.
Tequila. It’s true: it does make you happy. And not just for National Tequila Day (July 24 2021). If you can’t get enough of the naughty Mexican spirit (distilled from the native blue agave plant), these London bars are the place to go. They’ve got drinking tequila down to a fine art. And we’re talking so much more than the salt-shot-lime of ill-advised party bars. These scorching-hot watering holes serve a whole fleet of tequilas – from blancos to aged añejos – or mix a poky cocktail from the stuff. So whether your tipple is a Margarita, a Paloma or a good old Slammer, add these tequila bars in London to your hit list. Then let the good times roll, like a Mexican wave.
