Cafe Pacifico

Every year in December our whole department at work get together for our Christmas night out. There are only two things we require, good food (lots of it) and copious amounts of alcohol. 

This year we decided to book a huge table at Cafe Pacifico. Mexican food and tequila, what more could you want? 

When it got to 5 o’clock the men went off for pre-drinks and us girls began our routine of getting ready. I was running late as usual and had to practically be dragged away from the curlers at my desk to make our way to Covent Garden.

This classic cantina originally opened in 1982 and has a very old school Mexican vibe. As soon as you walk in you’re hit by the buzzing atmosphere and smell of tequila. 

Hundreds of different tequila bottles are on display behind the bar and are used in their vast selection of Margaritas. 

Strawberry Daiquiri’s, Mojito’s and Margaritas began flowing… 

After a few cocktails it was time to sit down at our table…

Our starters hadn’t even arrived yet when a round of tequila shots were put in front of us!

Thankfully for me, tequila is one of my favourite shots, so it’d be rude not to, right?…

My nachos arrived practically swimming in cheese, chopped peppers and jalapenos… 

Followed by sizzling chicken fajitas…

After our meal we stayed at the bar for the rest of the evening, ordering countless cocktails and every now and again another tequila shot would miraculously appear in front of us! As I said before, my excuse each time was that it would be rude not to!

I think it’s safe to say we were all feeling slightly delicate the morning after as we all slowly crawled into the office. The hangover was so worth it though!
