El Grotto

Bars Scarborough

Oceanside sundowners have never been so hip as at this tequila bar in Scarborough

In recent years Scarborough has been shaking of its less than flattering image. Matisse brought a Miami beach club vibe to the place, but now El Groto brings something a little more hip – it’s a Northbridge transplant by the ocean. One-time Mechanics Institute stalwart Ben Tua has a hand in El Groto, with the fitout from Finespun, the folks behind the look of Propeller, Mechanics, Flipside, Little Shop of Plenty and a host a Perth hospo hotspots. A Mexican theme prevails with the drinks program satisfying the most ardent barfly, whether it’s their particular focus on mezcal and tequila or cans of Tecate beer. Food also has a south-of-the-border bent with street corn, tacos and quesadillas.
