For generations, the classic Margarita has been a favourite all across the world thanks to its distinctive features: a lime wheel, salt rim and its delicate green hue. Whether you want to celebrate National Margarita Day (22nd February every year) or are just looking to treat yourself to a drink, here’s our guide to the best places in London to enjoy a Margarita.
Below & Hidden
Below & Hidden is a bar the size of your living room – we kid you not – but covered in rich tapestry. Enjoy a Herradura Tequila margarita or two in this comfortable setting. Bookings are recommended.
Downstairs at B&H Buildings, 42 Northampton Rd, London EC1R 0HU
For a unique take on everyone’s tequila based favourite, head over to Barrio. Using only a few ingredients, the team at Barrio will create only the smoothest margaritas with a deliciously tart flavour. Try Tommy’s Margarita, a mix of agave nectar, lime juice and Casco Viejo served shaken and over ice in a rocks glass. Take advantage of the Amigo hour when drinks are around £5.
The Jam Tree
The Jam Tree has two distinctive venues in Clapham and Chelsea which offer a vibrant yet laid-back night out. Make sure you try Jonny’s Margarita, featuring aged Mezcal, agave, chipotle tabasco, lime and smoked sea salt, for a cocktail with a twist. During Happy Hour, this margarita is half price! If you’re keen to to learn how to make delicious cocktails then book a Cocktail Masterclass with one of the bar’s mixologists.
