The Largest Tequila Bar In The World Is Landing Soon In London • Barrio Covent Garden

It’s no secret that we at Secret London love our tequila. And our whiskey. And our rum, and our… we’re getting off the point. Anyway, we’re always excited when another great tequila spot opens up, and boy is there a blinder of a tequila venue coming to London. Barrio is bringing their latest location to Covent Garden, which will become their flagship venue. It won’t just be the biggest Barrio yet: the team believe it will be the largest tequila bar in the world. We’ll let that sink in for a bit. Can you tell we’re excited?

Opening November 4, Barrio Covent Garden will mark the Barria Familia’s fifth London location, joining the pre-existing Shoreditch, Soho, Angel, and Brixton venues. Dropping into what was originally the location for the former Tropicana Beach Club, Barrio Covent Garden will be able to host up to 600 tequila-sipping revellers at a time. Latin-inspired cocktails and Mexican street-food will be on offer, alongside live entertainment and a brunch offering. Because what is a new venue in London without some kind of brunch? They’ll be using the new venue to launch their biggest ever Bingo Brunch parties.

A venue you’ll keep coming back to

Barrio Covent Garden will be all about going big and having a great time. So, they’ll also be offering up plenty of deals for patrons. Amigo hour will find deals available on tacos and tequila, and 2-4-1 cocktails. You’ll keep finding reasons to come back, as well, with the venue’s schedule of live entertainment and events so there’s always something else to do. It’s sure to be a blast every night in the centre of London’s theatre district, with Barrio’s Latin beats sound-tracking it all. We sure won’t be able to resist the siren calls of the margaritas as soon as the venue opens. Barrio is bringing the partying spirit back to London, a spirit that has sorely been missed.

Jim Robertson, Managing Director of Barrio Familia, had the following to say of the new opening:

This will be our biggest Barrio to date, and without a doubt, the best party we have ever thrown.  We believe Barrio to be the biggest tequila bar in the world and are thrilled to bring the Latin Quarter to the West End of London, especially as this has been depleted of large late night party venues over the pandemic. It’s going to be an incredible launch and we couldn’t be more ready for this next fiesta!
