BOOKING NOW FOR CHRISTMAS PARTIES
We go all out at Christmas - no promises as to restraint! - with moreish party menus, strong drinks, happy tunes, and a little madness topping our tree. We are simply the most fun, and most delicious place to be.
This year we have a new 'customisable' Christmas Feast Menu (read: fab for big groups), as well as a wallet-friendly 'La Comida' set menu, for lunch and afternoon. Highlights include our traditional Turkey Mole Tacos and our Pigs in Ponchos cumberland chipolatas, bacon, roast jalapenos, chipotle honey. Yep, we went there.
We're also particularly proud of our truly naff-in-a-good way Holiday Scorpion Bowl designed for sharing amongst friends. It's filled with overproof rum, gin, AND tequila, with fresh fruits and flowers galore. A boozy paradigm of excess. It's CHRISTMAS! 🌺🎄
Table bookings are now live for parties of 6 or more, from 25th of November ... all the way thru January! Have a peek at our Christmas brochure and get in touch with lovely Holly to book. #goodtimesguaranteed
🌈 ‘PET PRIDE’ PARADE - SATURDAY 6th of July, 2:30 PM 🌈
To celebrate Gay Pride 2019, we’re embracing our location in the Heart of Soho ❤️ with a unique event that celebrates our friends from every walk of life. Oodles of poodles and other adorable pets will cruise the catwalk at Corazon’s First Annual Pet Parade and Costume Contest, set to camp music, of course.
Mistress of Ceremonies and Corazon Founder, Laura Sheffield will introduce each tail-wagging contestant as they strut their stuff in adorning outrageous couture. We’re then going for a swagger around Soho, then returning to Corazon to enjoy human and doggy prizes, hang out for a couple of hours to eat, drink margaritas, and be prideful. 🏳️🌈
Human costumes encouraged; canine leashes required. There are no other rules, just dress up your pet (and you) in something fab.
Full disclosure: we’ve been looking for years for an excuse to hold this crazy event; for Pride, we thought hey, let’s have fun and get some dogs in drag! Never taking ourselves too seriously, especially margarita in hand.
The Pet Parade is open to ALL! Click here for tickets.

MEZCAL DINNER, CELEBRATING MEXICAN INDEPENDENCE DAY 🇲🇽🥃
On September 16, 1810, Father Miguel Hidalgo from Dolores, Mexico – rang the bell of his small church, calling everyone to rise up against the Spanish and cast off 300 years of colonial rule. This was the beginning of Mexican Independence and paved the way for an annual reventon of epic proportions.
This year, we are celebrating ‘Mexipendence’ in true Mexican style, with red, green and mezcal in abundance. And, given this year’s fiesta falls on a Monday, remembering to line our stomachs heartily.
Join us for a very special dinner rejoicing in all things Mezcal, with a menu from Corazon Head Chef Maisa to match. Dishes include a aguachile verdita with scallops & tequila, and chile-chocolate churros with salted caramel ice cream, frozen cafe horchata & Dangerous Don cafe mezcal.
The spirits and cocktails have been selected by ‘friend of Corazon’ Charlotte Connelly (@mezcalmamacitas) who will lead the dinner alongside Corazon founder Laura. Because strong women, strong mezcal. 💪

HECHO EN LONDRES
'CINCO EN SOHO'
🇬🇧🇲🇽 4th & 5th of May 2019 🇲🇽🇬🇧

CABRITO GOAT / JAMES WHETLOR DINNER
This 31st of January we launch the first of our one-off producer led dinners aimed at celebrating our love and appreciation for independent and innovative UK producers.
The first of these collaborations will see chef Paul team up with James Whetlor of Cabrito, the award-winning kid goat supplier and specialist. As an ex-chef, James founded Cabrito in 2012, feeling he should do something about the waste of male billy goats by the dairy industry – he thought that there had to be a better solution than euthanizing them as a by-product at a few hours old. Calling on his 10 years’ of chef experience and contacts, James set up Cabrito Goat Meat and began working with goat dairies to supply some London’s most celebrated restaurants.
This ticketed event, priced at just £35pp, will include an introduction to Cabrito by James, followed by a 3-course Mexican inspired menu designed to celebrate the meat’s unique and complex flavour profiles. The Feast style menu for the evening:
WELCOME DRINK ‘Corazon’ Margarita or Michelada
CABRITO TACO BBQ Goat Leg, Avocado Leaves, Roasting Juices, Guacamole, Habanero Pepper Salsa
GOAT BIRRIA Shoulder of Goat Stew spiced with Housemade Adobo, Guajillo, Pasilla & Ancho Chiles, Mexican Chocolate, Cumin. Served with Warm Tortillas, Chopped Onions & Tomatillo Salsa
TO FINISH Mexican Cinnamon Doughnuts and Cajeta (Goats Milk Caramel)
Wednesday, 31st of January, 7:30 pm. Tickets are sold in advance, available thru Billetto
