SoCal Taco & Tequila Fiesta 2022 Recap
Last week we held our Taco & Tequila Fiesta at SoCal to celebrate Cinco De Mayo.
It was a huge week of festivities, specials & good times!
Thanks to everyone that joined us for what was an awesome week. With Comedy Night, All You Can Eat Tacos, our Cocktail Masterclass, Chilli Eating Contest, Sweaty Senorita & Cinco De Mumo Lunch. Let’s just say it was a weeklong party!

All You Can Eat Tacos
We held the ultimate Taco Tuesday, for $39pp everyone enjoyed bottomless tacos & a Tommy’s Margarita on arrival! Guests could choose between several of our delicious tacos, with no limit on how many you could eat. This year we had two taco specials ~ Chicken and Napoles. The Chicken taco were that popular we are thinking about putting them on the menu!! Everyone left happy with a stomach full of tacos!
Are you still hungry for more tacos? Check out the full menu.
On Wednesday we celebrated Cinco De Mayo with our Tequila Cocktail Masterclass. Held by Applejack Group Bars Manager Lachy, guests learned to stir, shake & strain classic tequila cocktails (and enjoy their creations). Along with live music, the cocktail masterclass was an awesome way to celebrate Cinco De Mayo!

Chilli Eating Contest:
On Thursday we held our legendary Chilli Eating Contest! It was a contest like we had never seen before, with eight serious competitors, who somehow seemed to keep powering through the heat. By the last round we still had several contestants left, each consuming the dreaded Carolina Reaper (the hottest chilli in the world). After getting down to two contestants, it didn’t look like the end was in sight… so it all came down to who could finish a Carolina Reaper the quickest (keep in mind they had already consumed two each). In the end, our winner, Señor Will was unstoppable!
It was a fun night, with live music, an awesome crowd, and an even better show! Congratulations to all who took part in our contest.
Let’s continue the fun, check out our upcoming SoCal unplugged, live music line up.
Sweaty Senorita Lunch:
On Saturday we held our Sweaty Senorita Lunch. First the crew from Vive Active took our customers through a sweaty pilates class, before they climbed the SoCal stairs and enjoyed a well deserved bottomless rose lunch. The day was topped off with live music, endless margaritas and epic specials.
Missed out? Gather your Senorita’s and join us for a Bottomless Rose Lunch, available every weekend.
Cinco De Mumo:
We celebrated Mother’s Day with Cinco De Mumo. All Mum’s enjoyed a Tommy’s cocktail on arrival before sitting back and relaxing on our rooftop terrace. Our kitchen cooked up some special dishes for Mum, including an Al Pastor Taco, which was a massive hit.
Spread to love even further, gather your family and friends and book a table with us.
Thanks to everyone who joined us throughout our Fiesta week!
Stay tuned for next year… our fiesta will be back bigger & better than ever!
