El Bandito, LondonGarnering the title of
Mezcal-eria (tequila’s smoky sister) is no easy feat, but they did it. El Bandito was one of the first UK bars to be awarded this status by Del Maguey Single Village Mezcal. Hidden below the Drunken Monkey restaurant on Broadgate, steps away from Shoreditch High Street station, John & Matt are converting the neighborhood to 100% Agave and Mezcal.

Their menu consists of flights of three tequilas and three mezcals for those just dipping their toe in the smoky water or six different mezcals for those who want to jump right in. Don’t worry – there are margaritas on the menu – both Tommy’s and Frozen – or a Kale Mezcaleria, if you want something in the wellness category!


(FYI – El Bandito London is moving to 
Victory Mansion  (18 Stoke Newington High St, London N16 7PL) on 21st May.)
