Best Places to Celebrate Cinco De Mayo in NYC

May 4, 2015 Megan Stoeckel

This celebration of the Mexican Army’s victory over its French foes in 1862 is probably most popular in the Southwest, which is home to some of the largest populations of Mexican immigrants to the U.S. But that doesn’t mean the melting pot of New York City doesn’t have plenty of Mexican-Americans looking to display their multi-national pride on this annual holiday. And if you’re keen to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in high style, there are several NYC venues that can accommodate. Whether you’re interested in hitting the hotspots where you’ve previously hosted your birthday party or you want to try one NYC’s newest event spaces, you should definitely check out some of these incredible venues.

The DL

If you want to make a night of it, this multi-level event space definitely fits the bill. Start with some seafood or steak on the first floor at Dinner on Ludlow, then head up to the third-floor rooftop for a breath of fresh air and stunning views of the Williamsburg Bridge and other revelers on the streets below. And finally, wrap up your evening by hitting the swanky, second-floor Red Room for drinks and dancing. This venue is ideal for planning your Cinco de Mayo party, a birthday party New York, or any other major event.

Dos Caminos

If you’re seeking modern Mexican cuisine and delicious drinks, Dos Caminos restaurant and tequila lounge is the place to be. So book a reservation for your party, load up on made-to-order guac and warm corn tortilla chips, knock back some margaritas, and get your fiesta on. Don’t forget to sample the Cinco de Mayo specials!

Rosa Mexicano

According to Martha Stewart, you’ll find the “best guacamole in the world” when you visit this NYC gem. And you don’t even have to wait for your birthday party to celebrate. Rosa Mexicano hosts a week-long celebration for Cinco de Mayo, and offers a special menu, along with all the scrumptious Mexican comida, tequila mixers, and mariachi music you can handle.

El Rio Grande

The famous namesake river may be hundreds of miles away from the Five Boroughs, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the Tex-Mex cuisine the region is known for when you visit this delicious restaurant. In fact, you can select the side of the border you want to dine on with both Texan and Mexican menus that are equally appetizing. If you’re seeking a more laid-back aesthetic when you celebrate Cinco de Mayo, look no further than this stylish and inviting establishment.
