A Mexican basement bar of the highest accord, they love tequila so much at Azulito they’ve got it coming out of their taps. Ok not really, but there’s no less than 80 bottles proudly lined up on the shelves, available to enjoy straight or as part of a cocktail. Tan-leather recliners, swinging basket chairs, quirky colour schemes and foosball tables contribute to the tropical feel to the place.
