Tequila Month Celebration

#LibraryBarTequila

4 October to 2 November 2019

In collaboration with Maestro Dobel Tequila, we turned Mexican for the month of October. Throughout the month, guests enjoyed a range of exclusive cocktails including Sangrita, Mayahuel Margarita and an E-Rock Margarita. View the menu by clicking below. Embracing the Mexican culture, the bar was decorated with altares de muertos (Day of the Dead altars), alongside traditional figurines and calavera. The celebrations ended with a closing party, to mark the cultural celebration weekend of “Día de Muertos” (Day of the Dead) on Saturday 2 November.
