Wahaca & El Bandito launch Mexican bar residency in the heart of Liverpool

Wahaca, the Mexican restaurant group, is teaming up with popular Liverpool bar, El Bandito and the Graffiti Spirits Group, to launch a 3 month rooftop bar residency above its restaurant off Hanover Street, in the heart of Liverpool this October.

The collaboration, a first for both groups, will see El Bandito transform Wahaca Liverpool’s rooftop bar into a new home for the North West’s best Mezcal and tequila-based cocktails, set in a unique 1st floor bar space with access to an outdoor terrace above Wahaca’s restaurant.

Wahacha and El Bandito

El Bandito at Wahaca was created out of a joint love of Mexican food and drink, and a passion for spreading the word about this incredible cuisine and the drinks Mexico has become famous for. The bar will be serving a bespoke list of cocktails created by the team at Graffiti Spirit Group for the residency with drinks such a Pre-Aged Mezcal Negroni and a Nitro Espresso Martini alongside classics such as El Bandito’s much-loved Roots of Agave and fruit infused Margaritas. The cocktails will be complemented by the Mexican street food menu available at Wahaca downstairs as well as a selection of bar snacks.

Fitting with Wahaca’s strong sustainability credentials and announcement of becoming the UK’s first carbon neutral restaurant group, the El Bandito rooftop bar will be Zero Waste, sourcing and recreating ingredients to ensure nothing is sent to landfill.  

El Bandito at Wahaca will be launching on Thursday 4th October at Wahaca Liverpool, offering a selection of super premium tequila, Mezcal, beers and cocktails and bar snacks. Wednesday – Friday 5pm – 12am and Saturday – Sunday 12pm – 12am
