Where To Celebrate National Tequila Day in Boston

Where To Celebrate National Tequila Day in Boston

In honor of National Tequila Day, here’s a roundup of the best places in Boston to get your agave on - as selected by BostonYPA members and friends!

For the bad and boujee: Lolita.

The original Copley Square locale is an alluring underground lair of spooky seduction, a concept made bigger and better by its Fort Point counterpart, which features an expansive dining room and patio. Whichever you choose, you’ll be imbibing with sheer glamour.

Two locations: Dartmouth St. in Back Bay and Summer St. in the Seaport.

For after-work festivities: Mija Cantina.

This chic establishment is centrally located so the whole squad can stop by after 5PM. Tall glass windows in one of Boston’s busiest tourist attractions makes for prime post-work people watching. Plus, drop your business card at the door for a chance to win a free party!

Located in Faneuil Hall Marketplace.

For slaying all day: Citrus & Salt.

“I didn’t text you, tequila did.” Down to the words splattered on the bathroom mirror, this spot’s ambiance promotes acting on base impulses, with cocktails like “take your pants off” and “tequila is better than therapy”. BYPA President Erica swears by the food, too - apps like house-made guacamole, empanadas and street corn, and brunch offerings (Chicken and Waffle Tacos? Say no more.) 

Located in Back Bay.

For hearty appetites: Sunset Cantina

This mainstay in the heart of BU territory embodies going big or going home. Bring a crew to crush an enormous mountain of “famous” nachos or any of the offerings on Sunset’s expansive menu, including a huge selection of tequilas and cocktails. (Pour one out for its sister establishments, Patron’s and Sunset Grill & Tap. RIP.)

Located on Commonwealth Ave in Allston.

For roof deck chilling: Felipe’s Taqueria.

Take it to the top of this Brattle Street mainstay for frozen drinks and fast-casual fare. Enjoy it while it lasts, too -- come August and the return of Harvard students, the rooftop bar will be packed with elbow-knocking Ivy League elites.

Located in Harvard Square.

For the finer things in life: Bartaco.

“Bartaco is more bar than taco,” says friend of Boston YPA Kyle B. “Their tequila drinks/margs are top-notch.” Everything from the decor to the scratch-kitchen bar and food menu to the uniform of That J. Crew Shirt is meticulously curated - here, you’ve reached culinary nirvana.

Located in the Seaport.

For ballin’ on a budget: Zuma Tex-Mex Grill.

Zuma, first and only of its name, is the perfect destination for no-frills grub and glog. Grab some friends, head downstairs and split a pitcher -- at just 22 bucks a pop, you can treat the whole squad. (Pro tip: book on Seated to get rewards back on your bill!)

Located in Faneuil Hall Marketplace.

Honorable mentions: Lone Star Taco Bar (East Cambridge & Allston), Margaritas (multiple locations), Article 24 (Allston/Brighton).
