El Primo Sanchez: Maybe Sammy Team Joins Forces For The Bar Collab Of Our Tequila Dreams

Bars, Drink, Sydney / 31 October 2022

The all-new Mexican bar and eatery will inhabit the ground floor of adored Paddington pub, The Rose Hotel. 

Over the past few years, we’ve watched Sydney’s love affair with all things Mexican blossom to fruition. Now, not only can you find an authentic Mexican feed in most of our favourite suburbs, but the calibre and variety of agave spirits to be discovered in our city, is second only to Jalisco.

Set to join Sydney’s Mexican culinary scene later this year, a collaborative bar venture from two of Sydney’s hospitality heavyweights. Claiming the ground floor space of Paddington’s Rose Hotel – currently owned and operated by Public Group – El Primo Sanchez is set to be the fifth venue from The Maybe Group adding to their highly acclaimed lineup of award-winning bars and restaurants including; Maybe Sammy, Dean & Nancy on 22, Sammy Junior and Maybe Frank.

“We love what Public Hospitality do with their venues and it’s been fun working with Anna and the team so we can’t wait to bring El Primo Sanchez to life with them. You can still expect the same high level of hospitality, playful energy, brilliant cocktails and attention to detail as our other bars. It will just be wrapped up into a Mexican environment with more of a laidback pub vibe than a high-end cocktail bar,” said Vince Lombardo, co-founder, The Maybe Group.

A casual food offering will be served alongside cocktails served in traditional handmade clay jarrito jugs. The thoughtfully crafted signature cocktails list will highlight the very best Mexican and Latino produce, incorporating an eclectic selection of agave spirits.

The announcement comes in the wake of Public Group’s newly launched Oxford House, an inspired transformation of the adjoining property into a lifestyle hotel, restaurant and poolside bar. 

El Primo Sanchez is slated to open this December, keep an eye on their socials for all the latest @elprimosanchezsydney.
