Mexican Bar Opening: Lucha Libre

Last weekend I headed up to my old student stomping ground, Manchester, for a weekend with a good friend.

We headed to the opening of new Mexican bar/restaurant Lucha Libre for some tequila, guacamole and good old fashion Mexican fun.

Lucha Libre is a Mexican street food concept that serves authentic Mexican food from the state of Jalisco, Mexico. This then turns in to a late night tequila & cocktail bar; with the flick of a switch the decor changes and the illuminous wall murals begins to show.

The place has a rustic yet refined charm to it, the décor includes exposed lights and large metal pillars but overall it still looks reasonably smart.

It had a great vibe to it and fun Mexican live music…until it was interrupted by a fire alarm which continued for what felt like an hour. Still it didn’t deter us and the band even started singing along to it!

As it was opening night I got a taster of lots of mini dishes and they were all honestly delicious, I’m not sure what exactly I ate but I know they included quesadillas and tacos of halloumi, guacomole, seared tuna..and lots more yummy ingredients.

…and for desert I think we ate our weight in mini churros, they were so moreish!
