Cantina La 20
For the past two years, Miami’s iconic destination Cantina La 20 has celebrated Cinco de
Mayo with the best party in the magic city. Living up to their previous blow-outs, this
year the holiday falls on a Saturday and promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
Located along the primer waterfront destination in Brickell, the restaurant will transform
into a traditional Mexican fiesta where the staff will be decked out wearing festive
moustaches and sombreros. Cantina La 20 will also celebrate their favorite holiday by
offering locals and new faces a Coronita and a shot of Revolución Silver Tequila for
just $10 (all day).
The doors will open at a special early time of 12 PM and a lucky group of guests will be
gifted free sombreros! Attendees will be able to celebrate in Miami’s chicest Mexican
venue suronded by one of the largest collections of tequila and mezcal in town – not to
mentioned their incredible list of margaritas (including a 24k gold version). To keep the
party going strong all day, there will be a mariachi and DJ’s where visitors are
encouraged to dance downstairs overlooking the glistening Brickell bay.
To truly treasure the triumph, guests can relive Mexico and rejoice with authentic dishes
prepared by Executive Chef Santiago Gomez – think gorditas stuffed with chicharron,
soft-shell crab tacos served with jalapeno sauce, octopus carpaccio, queso fundido and
cochinita pibil. Reservations are strongly suggested and can be made by calling 786-623-
6136 or Open Table.
