Have a Latino in one of the 10 best Latin bars in London:
The Cuban – Camden
Camden’s own Revolutionary corner is fast becoming the North London’s favourite Latin rave on Friday nights with innovative cocktails served by attentive staff. They have house music downstairs and upstairs plays salsa tracks.
El Patron Londres – Putney
This is a fantastic little Mexican bar in Putney. It is tastefully decorated and serves a variety of tapas, tequila and cocktails. If you fancy trying a tequila in London, then this is the place to come.
Embargo – Chelsea
This gorgeous bar is known as “Barggies” to its loyal fans who return week after week. It is a glamorous Latin night out complete with killer cocktails. Featured on ‘Made in Chelsea’ it attracts young Londoners who buy the Cuban cigars they sell and admire the Che Guevara graffiti in the smoking area.
Floripa – Shoreditch
A Brazilian inspired haunt, just a stone’s’ throw from Old Street. This Shoreditch venue is Brazilian through and through. It’s hard to get a good Caipirinha outside of Brazil but this place has got it down to a fine art!
Barrio Central – Soho
The atmosphere here is influenced by a mix of Latin cities and cultures. The cocktails are amazing especially during their “Amigo Hour” where you can get tequila and rum infused cocktails for just £5. It’s small but you can reserve booths making it great for groups and parties.
Chotto-Matte – Soho
This is a great bar and another Peruvian and Lukas winning gem which has popped up in the capital. Upstairs is a fusion restaurant serving “nikkei” cuisine which mixes sushi with ceviche. Downstairs the DJ is amazing and the atmosphere is even better.
The Forge – Camden
This is an excellent bar playing London’s latest coolest Latin music, a favourite for London’s Cuban community who host regular parties here. It serves much sought after Latin delicacies such as Venezuelan Arepas and Cuban Sandwiches.
Made in Brasil Boteca – Camden
The sassy sister of Camden’s favourite Brazilian restaurant ‘Made in Brazi’, the Boteca features great Brazilian live music and Cachaca based cocktails, all beautifully served in a fantastic dreamy atmosphere.
Tonteria – Chelsea
This is a glamorous underground bar in the heart of Sloane Square. Go there on a Monday night for ‘Monday Madness’ but do be prepared for queues. Waiters walk around with giant lucha-libre masks and a Mariachi Band makes an appearance every few hours.
Coco Bananas – Battersea
Coco Bananas has now opened in the three-story attic of the infamous Bunga Bunga restaurant. It is a Brazilian inspired beach bar where the DJs mix their tunes with amazing Latin music all night long.
