El Camion (The Pink Chihuahua)

El Camion Soho

El Camion SohoAn industry mecca, El Camion is where the drinks trade comes to party late into the night and sink back tequilas. Dick Bradsell, a legend himself, can sometimes be spotted behind the bar shaking up Espresso Martinis — and he invented them, so you know they’ll be good.

You’d be wise to start off with his coffee cocktail, since this place is open until 3am Monday through Saturday — and there’s no such thing as a quiet drink down here. You come for one, but leave after … well, we can’t remember. If you order tequila shots (and there are literally hundreds of varieties), they’ll be accompanied by homemade sangrita — a pomegranate spicy sipper that cuts through any of that after-kick. Of course, you’ve got to try the famous house cocktail – the Pink Chihuahua – sweet, fruity and ready for a party.

There’s no need to drink on an empty belly since the kitchen dishes out tacos and other Mexican treats until 2am.

Best Bars tip: Swing by for a bite upstairs and ask to get a membership card, this should speed up the entry process on all of your subsequent visits.
