Cinco de Mayo Sydney El Camino Cantina THE F 1

Celebrate ‘Cinco de Mayo’ in Sydney in style

The 5th of May is a big thing in Mexican culture as it’s the day back in 1862 that the Mexican military won an unlikely victory against the French.

Though lots of people confuse it as the day of Mexico’s independence from the Spanish, it’s not, and basically for everywhere outside of Mexico, is a big reason to drink tequila, eat Mexican dishes and go a little bit loco on an otherwise regular day in May.

So, to celebrate, the Rockpool Dining Group has turned up the South American soul at its most Mexican of venues – El Camino Cantina – and is putting on a few ways to celebrate that’ll have you wondering why you ever decided to take-on tequila.

Cinco de Mayo Sydney El Camino Cantina THE F 2

Cinco de Mayo

Good things will come in fives this Friday, 5 May when the late night, Tex-Mex hangout in the heart of The Rocks celebrates Cinco de Mayo with $5 tacos, accompanied with $5 Margaritas, craft beers, house wines and house tequila until 7pm. El Camino’s famed, colossal, frozen and shaken Margaritas will be given a Cinco de Mayo flavour boost of peach and habanero chilli, and a DJ will kick the party along from 6pm.  Unleash your inner bandito or señorita, with prizes for the best dressed.

First birthday fiesta

The party will be fired back up for El Camino’s 1st Birthday Fiesta on Friday, 19 May. Get ready for sombreros, piñatas, Margaritas, tequilas and tacos … not necessarily in that order.

We’re celebrating 365 days in existence for Sydney’s most authentic Tex-Mex cuisine. There will be a free taco station from 5-7pm, a Tex-Mex infused, limited-edition birthday Margarita, a DJ from 6pm and churro birthday cupcakes for guests. What’s not to celebrate!

Vivid inside and out

From Friday, 26 May, the neon-filled diner will be the perfect destination for a pre or post Vivid feast. Entry to this one-of-a-kind cantina is via The Argyle’s cobblestone courtyard, which will be a dazzling den of activity throughout the festival. Once indoors, surrounded by enough bright beams and fluorescent signage to light up the Vegas strip, guests will be forgiven for thinking the Vivid Festival has continued inside the fun-fuelled cantina. Enjoy authentic Tex-Mex feasting, as well as a DJ every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening during the festival.
