El Capo


Indulgent Mexican Cantina Finds Its Welcome Second Home in Nottingham. 

Mexico meets the Midlands with the launch of Mexican Cantina El Capo. Committed to serving bold Mexican cuisine with devilish South American flair. 

After 4 highly successful years in Manchester's Northern Quarter, having established itself as a local institution for both dining and drinking, El Capo has finally Broad Street in Nottingham with more Mexican attitude than you’ve ever seen before. 

Housed at 9 Broad Street, formerly Rum House & Bad JuJu, El Capo is spread across 2 floors; proudly plating it’s signature cuisine in the ground floor Mexican Cantina and mixing up a storm in the upstairs Tequila Bar packed with attitude. 

Macho Mucho, Margaritas, Marga-litres, Mezcal, Music, Mojitos, Mac & Chese… Mas! Mas! Mas! A night at El Capo will transport you to the heart of Mexico City, where you and your amigos will leave a little more Mexican than when you arrived.

The restaurant promises ‘down right dirty but oh so good’ Burritos, a long list of punchy Tacos, authentic Mexican Padron Peppers, Prawns, Burgers that make you go ooh – and of course there’s Nachos laden with Guacamole. Don’t forget the Macho Mucho Menu – where bigger really is better – a 2ft long burrito made for 6 but they’ve seen lone wolves take it solo and the Big Ass Chilli Burger which comes with its own planning permission. 

The bar is home to a vast range of up to 200 Tequila & Mezcal options, a signature cocktail list longer than the 2ft burrito and margaritas galore.

This enticing venue will showcase something special all week with Sunday Service Big Sharing Boards, providing the ultimate hangover cure. Steak Out Monday, premium steak for 2 with sides and wine, perfect for date night & steak lovers. Taco Tuesday for those who love Tacos this is your moment, all Tacos £1 all night long and Wing-It Wednesday, 50p wings all night, perfect with a beer or two. They're also not limiting happy to an hour as it's available from 4pm-7pm everyday and all day on a Thursday.
