Quiquiriqui – Day of the Dead

Below a kebab shop on Hackney Road is an unlikely venue (or is it?) for a hot new bar to open in the bubble. And when I say bar, I mean a Mezcalaria; a Mexican sensation that’s spreading through America’s, and Europe’s bar scene like a prickly cactus forest.

Mezcalaria Quiquiriqui offers up an assortment of mescal (kind of tequila-ish) based drinks and Mexican beers, the outlook and décor promises an expedient den of liquid iniquity.

Last time I tried mescal, I was (fairly easily) coaxed into eating the worm. I’d advise leaving the food alone to float and head straight for some sampling.

To celebrate Mexico’s Day of the Dead, they’re offering five tastings of the finest Mezcals this side of the gulf from 1st-4th November, for just a tenner on the door. Throw in some music, Mezcal cocktails, ideally Mexican wrestling masks, and it’s ‘aye caramba’ all the way home.

If you do get hungry, there’s a handy kebab shop just above you.
