WHY HERE: A basement bar tucked directly below London’s infamous taco hot spot, El Camion, Pink Chihuahua serves a range of creative Margaritas that are a true testament to the power of tequila. The décor is neon-meets-kitsch-chic: There’s a robust display of hot sauce bottles from around the world standing at attention on the wall, and a giant mural that depicts—what else?—a pink Chihuahua. Come for the sassy ambiance, sure, but stay for the extraordinarily well-made, low-key drinks.
WHY NOW: Dick Bradsell, who helped develop the menu at Pink Chihuahua, is nothing if not a spirits legend, and his untimely death in 2016 rocked the cocktail world. Think about just how robust the London cocktail scene has become under his tutelage as you sip here.
