Mejico's Taco & Tequila Festival

This laneway Mexican joint is throwing a tasting party dedicated to agave spirits — including plenty of hard-to-find drops.

Could there be a more fitting way for Mexican restaurant Mejico to kick off its monthlong birthday festivities than with a big celebration of tacos and agave spirits? We think not. So, on Saturday, October 8, the CBD venue is getting the party started with the first ever Melbourne edition of its Taco & Tequila Festival — already a popular annual affair at Mejico's Sydney outpost.

Firing up from 12pm, it'll see the Pink Alley restaurant transformed into a dedicated agave tasting room, where you can move between supplier stalls sampling pours from labels like Fortaleza, Corazón, Gran Centenario and more. With plenty of boutique sips and hard-to-come-by tequilas in the mix, this lineup is sure to impress the most avid of agave aficionados.

You can nab a ticket for $40, which includes all tastings, a tasting glass and two of Mejico's signature tacos to enjoy in-between tequilas. And when you need to switch things up, you'll find $5 beers and $10 margaritas available from the bar.

The festival is set to offer a taste of what's to come when Mejico Melbourne's new late-night tequila bar opens permanently at the end of October.
