Fiesta Time! SoCal Neutral Bay Throws A Month-Long Cinco De Mayo Extravaganza

Eat, Sydney / 3 May 2024

Margaritas, music, and mountains of tacos!

As the crisp autumn air settles in and the days begin to shorten, Sydney’s spirit for celebration starts to simmer. May brings with it the vibrant fiesta of Cinco de Mayo, and SoCal Neutral Bay is gearing up to host a month-long extravaganza that promises to transport you south of the border.

SoCal Cinco De Mayo Fiesta

From May 5th to 26th, SoCal is transforming into a haven of Mexican revelry. The festivities kick off with a bang on Cinco de Mayo itself. Picture a lively Sunday session filled with the infectious energy of live music, flowing $15 margaritas courtesy of Olmeca Altos, and, of course, an abundance of delicious tacos. A dynamic duo and DJ Rayn will keep the party atmosphere going, while a surprise Mariachi band adds an extra layer of cultural flair. Walk-ins are welcome, but bookings are recommended to ensure you don’t miss out on the vibrant atmosphere.

But the celebrations don’t stop there. Throughout May, SoCal is serving up a smorgasbord of exciting events, each designed to bring the flavours of Latin America to the Lower North Shore. Taco Tuesdays become even more tempting with $4 tacos, while Happy Hour transforms into a prime time to indulge in both delectable bites and refreshing $15 margaritas.

For the brave at heart, the annual Chilli Eating Competition offers a chance to test your mettle against the fiery heat of progressively hotter chillies. There’s also a Dinner and a Show night, promising an evening of entertainment alongside a delectable meal.

Here’s a closer look at some of the exciting highlights:

  • Taco Tuesdays: Every Tuesday throughout May, indulge in SoCal’s delicious tacos for a mere $4 each. It’s the perfect excuse to gather your friends for a casual mid-week fiesta.
  • Happy Hour Delights: From 5 pm to 6:30 pm, Monday to Friday throughout May, Happy Hour takes on a Mexican twist. Enjoy $15 margaritas alongside delectable bites, transforming your after-work wind-down into a mini south-of-the-border escape.
  • The Fiery Challenge: Chilli Eating Competition: Do you have a penchant for the fiery? Put your taste buds to the test on a designated Thursday in May at the annual Chilli Eating Competition. Can you handle the progressively hotter chillies and emerge victorious?
  • Taste of Mexico: Dinner & A Show: For just two nights during the fiesta a curated banquet menu alongside a live Mexican dancing show will transport you to the streets of Mexico. 

SoCal’s Taco & Tequila Fiesta is the perfect way to embrace the spirit of Cinco de Mayo and inject some south-of-the-border vibrancy into your month. With delicious eats, refreshing drinks, a lively atmosphere, and a diverse range of events, it’s a celebration that promises to leave you with lasting memories.
