South American Bars in London

There’s no denying it – London loves Latino. From the street food to the burritos and of course not forgetting the sumptuous tipples. There are not many credible bars that don’t have a hint of Latin American flavour. Whether it’s the music, the margaritas, the mojitos, the rum, the tequila or even the lime-chocked bottles of Sol, there is evidence of our cross-Atlantic chums in most bars. But if you like your salsa in much bigger portions, here are few South American bars in London that are worth checking out.
