A mile-long margarita bar crawl is taking place in Manchester this week

Do do do do do, TEQUILA

Daisy Jackson Daisy Jackson - 17th February 2024

A mile-long bar crawl dedicated to margaritas is taking place in Manchester over the next week.

Tequila fans will be able to hop their way between bars that are putting on limited-edition cocktails and tequila-based specials.

There are 24 venues signed up to the week-long margarita crawl in Manchester alone, with a similar event happening across in Leeds.

Those taking part include Mexican restaurant Madre, gigantic food hall New Century, and subterranean cocktail bar The Daisy.

The Margarita Mile has been created by El Tequileño tequila and is a celebration for National Margarita Day on 22 February.


El Tequileño, which is produced in the town of Tequila in Mexico, and Maldon Salt have been working with some of the city’s best bars to create perfect margaritas.

Special cocktails will be available for one week only, between 19 and 25 February,


These include a whole flight of margs at New Century, where if you’re overwhelmed with choice you can throw a dice and let that choose your drink.

Fierce, a bar that specialises in craft beer, has come up with its own take on a Lagerita, using Mexican cerveza to create a longer, citrus drink.

There are mini events taking place across Manchester too, like The Daisy hosting Tony Salles, master distiller of El Tequileño, who will explain all about his tequila brand.


And by sharing a picture of your marg while you’re out on the Margarita Mile around Manchester, you could win a goodie bag of treats from El Tequileño and Ten Locks Drinks.

Steffin Oghene, Global Ambassador for El Tequileño, who will be accompanying Tony Salles to the UK, says: “El Tequileño encourages everyone, from cocktail fans to tequila lovers to those who want to learn more about quality craft spirits, to get out on the mile to try a Margarita.

“We are super proud to be visiting Manchester, the city that created the Margarita Mile – we know that Manchester is a hotbed for creativity, with a wealth of music, arts and culture originating there, and now El Tequileño’s Margarita Mile is part of that cultural narrative.

“We look forward to meeting all Mancunians out on the mile!”

Please drink responsibly.
