Cinco De Mayo Soho Strut

Originating between Mexican-American communities to commemorate freedom and democracy, Soho always loves to celebrate Cinco De Mayo!  Here is the perfect “Soho Strut” of places to celebrate Cinco De Mayo

  • Start off at Toloache Thompson (205 Thompson).  Have some chips and guacamole for appetizers.  The manager Ricardo said they are planning to have a big celebration with a mariachi band and a DJ.  There will also be $7.00 margaritas and $5.00 shots.  For more information visit or call (212).420-0600

  • Walk over for happy hour at Pinche Taqueria (333 Lafayette).  There will be a mariachi band, $4 draft and bottled beer and $5 margaritas and tequila shots.

  • Stop over for a quick taco (or two) at Tacombi (267 Elizabeth).  I love Tacombi, especially their corn tortilla tacos.  The vegetarian “corn and poblano” was a surprise favorite, as is the pork belly.  Here is a picture from one of the last times I visited:

  • Party all night at La Esquina (114 Kenmare).  This speakeasy-styled restaurant & bar has been around for a while but it always is a good time (when you can get in).  Make sure to bring a $50 to tip the doorman in the case they are full downstairs, which is a high probability on Cinco De Mayo.  They are known for their spicy and sweet margaritas!
