Our Top places to celebrate Cinco de Mayo

Corazon

Cinco de Mayo is the most ambiguous of holidays – celebrating an obscure and unlikely military victory, which many confuse with Mexico’s Independence Day. But it is the very essence of a great party. A few margaritas in, does it really matter why we’re celebrating? 

Our bash will stretch all day Saturday and Sunday of the Bank Holiday weekend, giving you two full days to party like an adult (mostly).  There will be live mariachi music, salsa & guacamole tastings, samplers of new dishes, plus a special new and expanded agave list to explore. 

Join us for a dinner, or a restorative brunch – or both! We’re only reserving half our tables. If you can’t book a spot, please just pop down; we’ll be running a short queue and sweetening the deal with surprise perks whilst you wait.


Eastway Brasserie

BECAUSE WE LOVE A CULINARY FIESTA, we have created a Mexican-inspired menu to salute Cinco de Mayo, £28 per person (minimum 2 people)
