Tacos from Barsecco

When it comes to Cinco de Mayo, Miami knows how to throw a party. If you’re looking for events or restaurants to celebrate the drinking holiday, we’ve got you covered. 


Nestled in the heart of Brickell, Barsecco brings a touch of sophistication to the Cinco de Mayo scene. Enjoy their tantalizing margaritas—the spicy cucumber margarita will awaken your taste buds—and pair them with gourmet tacos. The eatery and lounge is home to some delicious wagyu Asian street tacos, birria taquitos, and baja chicken tacos


Located in Wynwood, Bakan transports guests to Mexico with its earthy, artsy, and modern space, a wide variety of authentic regional dishes, expansive mezcal and tequila offerings, and handcrafted tortilla selection. For Cinco de Mayo, a mariachi band will perform from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., and guests can enjoy the restaurant’s usual menu of delicious tacos, moles, quesadillas, and other signature plates. Of course, you’ll also find plenty of margaritas and micheladas. 

Bakan is located at 2801 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33127. For more information, visit their official website
