EL Guapo Newcastle

Upcoming Newcastle city centre Tequila and Margarita bar announces opening date

A new ‘vibrant’ Tequila and Margarita-focused bar, ‘El Guapo,’ is set to launch on Pilgrim Street, Newcastle, this February, just in time for World Margarita Day.

Occupying the location currently known as Pepo, El Guapo is set to shake things up in Newcastle’s hospitality scene and “transform the city's Margarita culture with its cheeky charm”.

The venue itself will be transformed into a “Tequila haven” featuring Mexican-inspired artwork and décor that screams rebellion. The ambience, designed to match the bold spirit of the brand, will feature rich, earthy tones mixed with bright, bold colours and rustic furnishings.

The organisers behind the new bar El Guapo shared their excitement, saying: "We are thrilled to bring 'El Guapo' to the heart of Newcastle. Prepare for an extraordinary experience celebrating the spirit of agave and all things Tequila, Tacos and, obviously, Margaritas. 

“We have had an amazing 18 months as Pepo, but we’re now ready to explore our new concept harnessing our team’s insane love for agave cocktails, so we set about creating the world’s biggest Margarita, and we can’t wait to sprinkle a large dose of Mexico into our beautiful venue on Pilgrim Street.”

With a focus on creating a “unique experience”, El Guapo will also feature a taco menu, complementing its drinks. From savoury to spicy, the taco menu promises a flavourful journey that mirrors the ‘vibrant’ venue and enhances the ‘lively’ atmosphere.

El Guapo's menu will include a variety of flavours, from spicy to classic and fruity cocktails, the new venue aims to position itself as the “go-to destination for Margarita, Tequila and Mezcal enthusiasts”. El Guapo will officially open on World Margarita Day, Thursday, 22 February 2024.
