Paraiso del Patrón

A lush slice of Mexico where you can ride out this balmy summer.

Summer calls for margaritas, and this February, Patrón is hooking Melbourne up. For the entire month, the premium handcrafted tequila brand will take over the rooftop at South Yarra's The Emerson with laidback Mexican luxury, featuring a specialty menu curated around top-shelf summer cocktails — and we're giving away VIP access to opening night.

The party starts on Thursday, February 1 from 7pm, with tunes by DJ Paul CLRK and signature Tommy's Margaritas. There'll also be grapefruit Paloma cocktails to be enjoyed with chipotle prawn tostadita and other Mexican eats, and you can top off the evening with Patrón's Perfect Espresso Martini — their twist on the classic espresso martini using their Silver and XO Café tequilas.

Along with serving Patrón's exclusive cocktails, The Emerson's rooftop will be transformed into a Mexican oasis — think whitewashed timber and woven seating, all embellished with blue agave plants and other Latin American native flora. Continue your journey into the luxe world of Patrón by way of a dedicated virtual reality experience that guides you through the Hacienda Patrón in Guadalajara, Mexico through the eyes of a voyeuristic bee.

The launch event is open to all from 7pm, but to get exclusive access to the launch, go in the running below. Our passes give you and three friends a reserved booth and two free cocktails each.
