Having conquered the discerning drinking scene in Liverpool, reputable spirit aficionados of El Bandito are excited to bring a slice of the North to the heart of London with the launch of a brand new pop-up, set to open on Wednesday 5th April 2017. Offering innovative and high-quality cocktails in a Mexican inspired Shoreditch bar, the El Bandito Pop-Up menu will feature an impressive collection of approximately fifty tequilas and twenty-five mezcals, including specialist brands not available anywhere else in the UK. The El Bandito brand is the brainchild of business partners John Ennis and Matt Farrell, who having enjoyed great success with their six Liverpool based bars, are now looking to launch this tequila and mezcal-focused pop-up using their extensive knowledge of spirits and passion for creative cocktails. In honor of their work recognizing and raising the profile of the mezcal category, El Bandito was one of the first UK bars to be awarded official ‘Mezcaleria’ status by Del Maguey Single Village Mezcal.
Hidden away from the bustling Shoreditch High Street, this residency will be taking place underneath popular dim sum restaurant, The Drunken Monkey, where guests can enjoy a memorable evening of inventive cocktails in a fun and atmospheric basement bar environment. With a capacity of only 40, the agave-addled drinking den will have Mexican influences throughout, including a colorful eye-catching design, vibrant Mexican tiles, and plenty of cacti.
