On our TNT travels around the world, we have experienced Halloween in many countries. We love Halloween's terror and mischievous shenanigans but how much do you know about Day of the Dead? Celebrated in Mexico and countries with large Spanish speaking populations, Day of the Dead (officially on 2 November 2018) is all about celebrating and remembering family and friends in an explosion of colour, costumes, parties and feasting. With this in mind, we have hand selected some London venues to celebrate this special day:

Cantina Laredo – Enjoy a spooky candle lit four course feast including their famous grasshopper topped guacamole and duck tacos. There will also be bottomless, unlimited Margaritas, wine, prosecco and beer at this slick modern Mexican restaurant in the heart of Covent Garden. If that wasn’t enough, their Dangerous Don dessert, a coconut cronut (half donut half croissant) with a dark chocolate skull filled with oozing hot caramel will be memorable.. as long as you don’t have too many Margaritas! Available all day for lunch and dinner on 2 November, tickets are £50 and available here

Romulo Café – This hidden gem in Kensington is without doubt the best Filipino restaurant in London. Day of the Dead dishes here include sizzling pork or veggie sisig (just try it) with java rice and Don Papa rum and raisin ice cream. The winner has to be their colourful Ube martini made with Ube (sweet purple yam), vodka, Malibu, cranberry and coconut cream. Special dishes available from 26 October. https://www.romulocafe.co.uk

Chino Latino – For one night, award-winning Pan Asian restaurant and Latin bar Chino Latino will be hosting a 4 course tasting menu including lobster taquitos and a scary passion fruit skull for dessert. They also have killer views with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the River Thames. 2 November only. Tickets are £45 and available here: https://www.designmynight.com/london/whats-on/immersive/day-of-the-dead-tasting-menu-chino-latino?t=tickets



 

Wahaca – They are going all out with a week-long celebration of feasting menus, one off cocktails and traditional decorations at all their restaurants. £25 gets you a drink and seven dishes to share including cornbread with whipped goat’s cheese and chilli jam and addictive churros with chocolate sauce. There will also be a one night only supperclub feast in Soho and Manchester. Menu available from 29 October - 4 November. https://www.wahaca.co.uk/dotd/

Bluebird White City - If you like tequila, tacos and a live DJ spinning tunes, we’ve got an all day brunch party we think you might just love. You can also try the brand new Fever Tree tonic that has been created exclusively for Patron tequila which really works on many levels. 3 November only. Ticket includes 3 courses for £35 with a welcome cocktail. https://shop.danddlondon.com/product/day-of-the-dead-club-brunch/

Ella Canta – Based inside the swish InterContinental London Park Lane, Chef Martha Ortiz has crafted an eight course Painted Black tasting menu which will have a continuous river of black running through each dish, a line that celebrates life. The bar will also be creating three Painted Black cocktails. The special menu runs from 1-17 November at £80 per person including one cocktail. https://www.ellacanta.com/


Tropicana Beach Club – Continue the party till the small hours at one of London’s most exotic tropical haven turned twisted den of mayhem. Get those flower crowns on and dance the night away to Latino, funk, soul and hip-hop beats. The night will also feature The Devil’s Margarita – a limited edition Don Julio tequila cocktail with Cointreau, watermelon and lime. Entry is free until 9pm. 2 November only 5pm-2 30am. https://www.tropicanabeachclub.co.uk/halloween/
