Fish Lane teams up with Espolòn Tequila for month-long marg fest, March into Margarita

Following on from the runaway success of Rosé Revolution and its negroni week celebrations, the Fish Lane Arts Precinct is once again bringing together its collection of venues to celebrate another beloved libation – the margarita – for a month-long party. March into Margarita will see the laneways bars and restaurants shaking up a signature riff on the staple cocktail, while some venues will be taking things up a notch with their own tequila-soaked soirees.

Salty, sweet and, sometimes, a little bit spicy, the margarita is as versatile as it is delicious. But wait until Fish Lane’s cadre of bars and restaurants pop the cocktail shaker on their own unique riffs as part of March into Margarita – a celebration of margs taking place throughout the month of March, hosted in conjunction with Espolòn Tequila.

Four weeks should be plenty of time to try all of the tequila-based tipples on offer alongside some limited-edition bites. While each venue will be pouring classic margaritas, it’s the new creations (all made using Espolòn) we’ll be seeking out. Start with a grilled-pineapple margarita from El Planta, followed by a plate of fish tacos at Hello Please. Or, those of you that love a spicy marg will definitely get a kick out of the smoked jalapeno margarita from Saccharomyces Beer Cafe and the Tajin-rimmed Tommy’s margarita at Kiki.

The month will also see a bunch of venues hosting marg-centric fiestas, starting with Margs-A-Million at Southside from 12:00–4:00 pm on Sunday March 3. Hailed as Brisbane’s biggest margarita festival, the event will see the Southside crew link up with the tortilla tossing team from Mama Taco to serve a one-off collaborative menu of snacks, while Southside and Kiki’s bars pour a collection of tequila and mezcal-based cocktails. Tickets are going for $49 per person and can be nabbed here.

On Thursday March 7, Midtown will host The Margarita Edit – an intimate affair where guests can enjoy margarita flights (featuring a classic, passionfruit, spiced lychee and a Tommy’s marg) alongside a clutch of salivation-worthy small plates. Later in the month on Thursday March 21, Chu the Phat and Espolòn Tequila will host Phat Phiesta – a pop-up selling the restaurant’s Asian-fusion eats as well as margs (naturally), while  mariachi music fills the laneway. Finally, Hello Please will be hosting Agave Sessions between 3:00–5:00 pm every Friday and Saturday throughout March into Margarita featuring tacos and plenty of margs.
