So today I had an adventure down Streatham High Road. We visited a cocktail and Mexican bar called El Chicos, for the Ladies night they have every Tuesday. Least we thought it was every Tuesday. Thinking every cocktail was half price we were getting ready for a night of boozy fruity liquor filled fun, but unfortunately they don’t run this deal through December?
WHY NOT? When better to run half price deals than the month of Christmas, when everyone wants to be drunk and merry? Frankly after hearing the same Christmassy hits year in and year out being drunk is about the only way to enjoy them any more.
Despite this monetary set back we had a drink or two, but being stingy students we didn’t stay for very long. In all fairness, having visited this establishment before, the cocktails are delicious. Fantastically presented, if you like the little umbrella and the fruit and sugary garnish then you won’t be disappointed, ladies and…well mainly ladies. They do have beer or regular shizz for the gents who feel a Cosmo is not quite to their taste.
Best thing is there’s a choice of 200 – yes 200 cocktails to choose from. And Mexican food. I LOVE Mexican food. I’d happily wallow in a tub of guacamole dip for a good hour or two, don’t get me started on fajitas and enchiladas…and TACOS…
Ahem. Excuse me. Don’t know what came over me. The food’s good, basically.
To add to the awesomeness there’s a Jazz cafe nearby along with several other pubs if you’re up for a bar hopping night. Or you can always head onto Brixton to a club there…possibilities are endless.
However unfortunately, they weren’t endless for us tonight. We both wound up at home with some wine for company and stir fry for tea, not quite what we envisaged but hey – we gotta roll with the punches.
