Your Local Guide To Adelaide’s Hottest Tequila Bars

They say that anything is possible with the right amount of tequila. It’s a good thing we’ve put together a list of the best tequila cocktails Adelaide has to offer. Looks like the weekend is sorted!

Tequila Tacos

Tequila n Tacos


Tequila n Tacos delivers exactly what it promises, and turns the whole Mexico thing up to eleven. Huge desert murals cover the walls, skulls, cacti and sombreros abound, banditos lurk in every nook and cranny, a little plastic pig… As for your tequila-based beverage of choice, just ask for ‘The Senorita’. Crusted in salt and gloriously pink, it’s a welcome addition to their new menu. Find out more

Hispanic Mechanic


Who doesn’t love a good rhyming restaurant? Hispanic Mechanic excels in quality Mexican food, whether you need a quick snack or a wholesomely satisfying sit-down meal. The outdoor area is beautiful, and the bar is alluringly lit and stacked with wines, quirky beers and top-shelf tequilas. The ‘Smokin’ Mary’ is quite the fiery experience, featuring tequila, clamato, lime and chipotle hot sauce. Oh yes. Find out more

Chihuahua Bar

West End

The friendly nature of Chihuahua Bar belies its hipstery setup, and the staff here are some of the nicest around. The dark, leafy interior makes it feel like a kind of hidden jungle paradise populated exclusively by well-dressed alcohol experts, and you’ll certainly want to give the ‘Tequila Old Fashioned’ a try. Served in a tumbler with lemon rind and glowingly pink, it’ll leave you wondering why you haven’t been drinking tequila all your life. Find out more

The Collins


One of Adelaide’s premier purveyors of exceptional booze, The Collins is all shiny blacks, intricate golden lights and impossibly comfy sofas. Why, it’s like walking onto the set of a James Bond film! We’re more interested in tequila today, of course, which is why we can’t look past the ‘Smokin’ Mexican Sling’. That’s smoked tequila, Cointreau, chipotle, lime and ginger beer, serviced with candied bacon and lime – yum! Find out more

A sprawling, North African-inspired wonderland of weird statues, rich reds, marble slabs, fresh greenery and never-ending live music and dance, there’s nowhere quite like Casablabla. This is undoubtedly one of Adelaide’s must-visit bars, and the ‘Coco’s Paradise’ cocktail is a dreamy mix of tropical tequila, pineapple and lime that always hits the spot. Try Wednesday nights for salsa classes! Find out more
