El Primo Sanchez has opened La Prima, a secret speakeasy concealed by a hidden door within the bar and restaurant.
Designed to transport patrons to Oaxaca, Mexico, La Prima offers a more intimate and exclusive experience to El Primo Sanchez.
The 10-seater, 20-standing speakeasy can only be accessed by invitation from staff or by those lucky enough to stumble upon it. Once inside, guests will find themselves immersed in an atmospheric setting, with candlelit ambience, old-school Mexican music, walls adorned with agave, and a dedicated female bartender crafting the drinks.
A special rotating menu of curated cocktails by the Maybe Sammy team adds to the allure, with the opening menu including the Encanto with Patrón Silver, dry vermouth and cherry soda, Perfume de Gardenias with Patrón Reposado, peach & citrus cordial and jasmine soda, and Pastel de Planto with Patrón Reposado, banana and cinnamon cordial, salt and agave.
Guests also have the option to order select offerings from the El Primo Sanchez menu, curated by Head Chef Alejandro Huerta.
The menu brings a playful twist to Mexican classics, including the Guacamole with fermented green tomato, chilli crunch and totopos, Pink Ling with baja base, pineapple pico de gallo and coriander, and the Blackmore Wagyu Barbacca with salsa roja de miso, burnt onions and shiso.
La Prima is located within El Primo Sanchez at Oxford House, 27-33 Oxford St, Paddington NSW.
