Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead (Saturday, November 2), is a celebration of long-standing tradition that is, first and foremost, a way for communities to honour family and friends who have passed on and to celebrate life both past and present. But the holiday has also come to represent the very best of Mexican culture — from tasty food to elaborate costumes, motifs and music. So, to celebrate the day, The Argyle has teamed up with the world's oldest operating tequila distillery Jose Cuevo to put on a two-day fiesta.

Head down to the Rocks' historic building and you'll be able to get in on the festivities on Friday, November 1 and Saturday, November 2. For two nights, performers, UV face-painters and themed decor will fill both storeys of the bar. There'll also be specialty cocktails featuring Jose Cuevo tequila. Better yet, grab a Los Meurtos margarita and you'll get a token you can redeem for a Jose Cuevo-based drink.

The Argyle has got some top-notch music acts planned for the occasion, too. On Friday night, you can catch DJ Keyes and R&B acts Mike Champion and DJ Helena Ellis. Or if you go on the Saturday night, you'll be dancing to the tunes of DJ Tigerlily alongside some other local acts.

If you arrive before 9pm on the Friday — and are in suitable dress — entry is free. Or you can join the guest list here. Saturday is a ticketed event; to nab yourself a ticket, head here.
