Despite sitting on cute-as-a-button Picton Place round the back-end of Selfridges, there’s nothing quiet or understated about Molé Taco Bar. Interiors have come courtesy of print wizards Matthew Williamson and Christian Lacroix, Frida Kahlo watches over from one wall, and bits of brickwork poke out from distressed walls like a Day of the Dead explosion.

A Morning of the Dead is nonetheless what should be feared. And it’s the likely outcome of a night out here, as their shots of coconut tequila go down way too easily. Mezcals, flavoured tequila and more are thrown together with homemade syrups and the flavour-infused spirits lined up next to the bar’s sugar skulls, which also serves a mean Pisco Sour.

It’s fun – and so is the menu. Inspired by Mexican and South American cuisine, there’s a range of classic recipes as well as more ‘out there’ items – if you haven’t tried pickled watermelon with your pork before, now’s your chance. Whilst tacos (proper soft-shelled ones) are the main event, check out the anticuchos, too. And you don’t even need to feel bad about it – 80% of the menu is gluten-free, leaving more guilt for the cocktails to absorb.
