Downstairs in the basement of Wahaca's bustling Soho branch lies the Azulito bar. Azulito’s décor is bright with an eclectic mix of furniture, low lighting, a couple of foosball tables and exposed brickwork which all work together keep the vibe lively, upbeat and friendly whilst maintaining a little of Soho’s gritty edge. The tan-leather recliners are the comfiest seats in the place, but the inner child within each of us of course has a magnetic attraction to the swinging basket chairs. Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights host a live DJ until midnight, spinning a mix of classic and contemporary tunes which keeps the atmosphere up without drowning out conversation.
Prime location on Wardour Street makes this an excellent venue for full bar or area hire, for both private parties and corporate events for groups of 10, up to 120 guests. Private parties or group bookings can pre-order a canapé / finger food menu to be catered downstairs in the bar, which is a bite-size variety of the restaurant's tastiest street food dishes (picture chorizo quesadillas, crispy chicken tostaditas and tender pork pibil tacos).
As well as hosting cocktail and canapé parties, the Azulito bar has a full size projector and plenty of seats, making it a fantastic laid-back alternative to stuffy conference rooms for use for presentations, meetings and screenings. Throw in a taco or two, some table football breaks and a margarita, and perhaps that offsite meeting next month doesn't seem so bad.
Azulito translates from Spanish as ‘little blue’; a nod to the blue agave plant from which all tequila is distilled. And if you like to talk tequila, this is the place to be, with over 55 different kinds behind the bar - all made from 100% agave. A margarita comes in at a very reasonable £6.95 with a real kick from a double shot of Altos tequila, and there are several tasty twists on this classic cocktail such as Hibiscus or Passionfruit. The bar also is well stocked with cold beers and wine, and ordering a michelada gives a refreshing Mexican makeover to your Corona or Pacifico.

A word from the chef:
Tortilla chips with fresh guac and salsa are available at the bar and are a welcome companion to post-work drinks. A canape / finger food menu is available Group Bookings and Private Parties, only available with pre-order. And of course, if 3 drinks in you find your appetite is hankering for something a little more substantial, get a table upstairs to sit down and share some of the delicious street food dishes.
