Originally ‘El Camino’ (road), but they had to change the name after some fight with the Mexicans around the corner. So it’s now called ‘El Camion’ (truck), better no?
This is the ultimate Soho bar for a boogie, plus you’ll find it between 2 sex shops. Mexican food is served upstairs, but it’s all about the Baja Room (sometimes called Dick’s Bar) down below – this is where it gets kinda loco! If you can make it down the ladder-like staircase without breaking your leg, then you’re in for a treat. This late night bar really kicks off, the music is fun and even the most modest of mates will be dancing on the table before closing time at 3am.
Make sure you are part of the The Pink Chihuahua club to avoid entry issues, ask the bartenders or get one here.
The bar’s run by Dick Bradsell – London’s veteran cocktail legend – and they certainly know how to mix a decent drink. It was Margarita mayhem when we were there and the crowd was hot. You’ll come back again and again, just go easy on the mescal or you’ll never make it back up the stairs!
Guaranteed to deliver Tuesday – Saturday. BarChick will see you there!
