The CBD's Esteban restaurant is hosting free Latin American music and dance performances in its laneway every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Paddington favourite Tequila Mockingbird brought its South American and Mexican flare to the CBD last spring when it opened the three-storey Esteban. The new venue already has a restaurant, a mezcal bar and a laneway dining space, but now it's adding live music to the mix.
Esteban-d, its new three-month music series, will see Latin American artists, performers and bands take over the laneway space every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night from Thursday, March 11. Which means you can pair your wagyu tacos, scallop aguachile and Martinez on Fire cocktail with tango, Cuban acoustic tunes, salsa and Peruvian hits. The program changes each week, and you can check it out over at the Esteban website.
The performances kick off each day at 6.30pm and run through till 10pm, so you can rock up at any point during this time to enjoy the free show. But, the restaurant does not take reservations for the laneway area, so prepare to wait if it's full.
Esteband runs from 6.30-10pm.
