We have 26 bar team members, from 26 different restaurants, battling it out in a Cocktail Mix Off. The attendees have been challenged to Mix a special cocktail and the winning bar member will win a trip to Mexico! 

They have already been through regional heats with their Area Managers and on the 20th January will go head to head in both the semi final and final. The final Judges including Jason Green (Managing Director) Susan Judge (Head of Marketing Leisure), Sam Bourke (Head of Marketing TRG), Andy Pearson (Mixologist), Ben (our host from Elixir bar London) will cast the winning vote and all will be hosted live from our Twitter account @thechiquito 

Wish the team luck and get voting from 3pm.

Introducing #SombreroSanta!

How lucky are we? We have an amazing Illustration artist working here at Chiquito headquarters and we asked her to develop us something special for Christmas and boy did she deliver!

Introducing our Sombrero Santa!

Artist Quote - "I am an Australian Illustration artist currently based in London. My work is about telling stories and is based on my experiences, my travels and the people I meet along the way. This piece is inspired by Christmas joy, a happy and festive Santa, who travels the world visiting lots of people on Christmas day. On his travels he has been given a wonderful mexican sombrero and has decided to wear it for the this very special day. I have always loved the colourful, fun and vibrant atmosphere at Chiquito. There is a great buzz in the restaurant and I am always looking forward to trying their new dishes and yummy cocktails!" You can follow Ellin here!
