Where to Drink on Cinco de Mayo in NYC

Cinco de Mayo is pretty much the best holiday of the year. It’s an excuse to eat a lot of tacos and drink a lot of tequila, and probably get a little crazy, especially since this year it falls on the very same day as #ThirstyThursday. Honestly, what could be better?

We’ve rounded up a list of some places that are doing specials for the holiday, plus some of our favorite Margaritas in the city. Don’t let the kale in The Wayland’s Garden Variety Margarita fool you. It’s a serious cocktail. Check out the spots below, and let us know how you’re celebrating!
