Paloma Grove at Wahaca Paddington

Tuesday 30th Apr 2024 |

In years gone by it was often overlooked in favour of the Margarita outside of Mexico, where it enjoys the status as the country’s national cocktail – but the refreshing zestiness of the grapefruit-infused Paloma is tempting the taste buds of more and more cocktail connoisseurs around the world. And with International Paloma Day (May 22nd) on the horizon, this month sees Wahaca throwing open the doors to The Paloma Grove at Wahaca Paddington for a limited time only. This decadent, delicious dining experience pairs a sumptuous set menu with an array of Paloma cocktails in a beautifully-designed, treehouse-inspired dining space at the heart of Wahaca’s brand new restaurant in Paddington, central London.

Visitors to Wahaca Paddington can, from today, reserve a place at The Paloma Grove between 29th April and 31st May. Created especially for group bookings, the space seats a minimum of six – and up to eight – diners at a time to enjoy a fabulous feast that showcases some mouth-watering highlights from the Wahaca Paddington menu, as well as a fruity, Paloma-inspired welcome cocktail on arrival. The focal point of the experience is the mother of all Palomas, aka La Paloma Madre, an opulent and over-sized serving of grapefruity gorgeousness. It’s enough for the entire table to share, is prepared tableside and presented in an elegant crystal chalice that allows guests to top themselves up once their glass runs dry.
