This November, Patrón Tequila is taking over London and Europe showing you what a traditional Mexican celebration of Día de Muertos looks like - from launching immersive art exhibitions across Europe, to taking over some of the UK’s best bars.
We encourage drinkers to raise a toast to this quintessentially Mexican festival, with one of the most precious gifts Mexico has offered to the world: tequila.
The festivities will take place over three days with an immersive event at the six-storey 19 Greek St in Soho from 1st to 3rd November 2019. If you want to extend the festivities, some of the nation’s most creative bars are celebrating the Mexican holiday in their own distinctive ways. Patrón has partnered with plenty of UK bars offering perfectly themed cocktails within a captivating and colourful setting that evokes the key symbols of the Día de Muertos. Below is a little taster of where you can go. So, please raise a toast and join us to celebrate this colourful Mexican tradition:
