At El Carmen, the main attraction is, without a doubt, the drinks. This centrally located eatery offers more than 300 varieties of tequila and an extensive selection of margaritas. To complement the beverages, the menu includes an assortment of tacos and flautas, as well as guacamole. The restaurant is bathed in shades of red, and strewn with lanterns and Mexican wrestling masks. The décor combines with dim lighting to create a chic, festive vibe, making the spot popular among the groups of friends out for a good time, and couples looking for an excuse to get cozy.

Insider Tip:

If you can’t decide on one type of tequila, order a flight and try a sample of several flavors. El Carmen offers three different types of tequila flights.
