Where to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo 2018 in Baltimore

We thought it was just a bit of luck of the Irish when St. Patrick’s Day fell on a Saturday, but now we’re feeling particularly fortunate as springtime weather joins forces with two day-drink worthy holidays on the same Saturday, the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo. There will be no shortage of celebrations in the city on the first weekend of May.

The waterfront Canton bar is celebrating Cinco with $3 tacos, $4 Coronas, $5 margaritas, $15 buckets and $6 Casa Noble crushes, rose sangria, and palomas. (2809 Boston St; 410-773-9795)
 
Sip and snack on Cinco specials on the rooftop at LB Skybar to the backdrop of a mariachi band from 4-7 PM. (20 W Baltimore St; 410-539-8400)
 
Federal Hill Fiesta
Sponsored by BMORE Around Town, One Star Country Club, Wayward Smokehouse, Blue Agave, and Banditos Bar & Kitchen—the Federal Hill Fiesta is an outdoor celebration at the Purple Tailgate Lot. From 12-10 PM there will be live music, Mexican street food, and specialty drinks. Tickets purchased ahead of time range from $8-$10 and can be purchased here. Walk-up tickets the day of the event will be $15. (Corner of Ostend and Leadenhall Streets)
 
This Cuban-inspired waterfront bar on the west side of the Harbor hosts an annual Cinco party with the expected margaritas, music, and brews as well as a few donkeys. No cover charge. (1325 Key Hwy, Baltimore; 410-837-9903)
 
This market will be hosting a Mexican festival with a live mariachi band and specials from vendors including: fish tacos from The Local Oyster; $6 margaritas at Cultured; $5 tequila shots and $5 sangria (red, rose, and white) at Pinch; churros and Tres Leche cake from Edible favors by Denis; $5 tequila shots (with Tart Cherry Kombucha Chaser) from Taps Fill Station; and a creative South American twist on poutine, Oaxaca-tine, for $10 at Between2Buns. (520 Park Ave; 443-796-7393)
 
This tequila bar in Power Plant Live! will be featuring festivities all day from pinatas with prizes to taco eating contests and live music to salsa lessons as well as a number of other games and competitions. Stop by the taco tent for $2 street tacos, $3 Sol, and $4.50 house margaritas. (26 Market Pl; 410-528-0128)
 
Papi’s Tacos
Papi's and B Scene Events & Promotions are hosting the inaugural Cinco-In-The-City on May 5th at Harbor Point, a Cinco de Mayo celebration with a portion of proceeds benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. There will be live music from a mariachi band as well as Mambo Combo and drinks like margaritas, beer, and sangria. Papi’s Taco’s, Alexander’s Tavern, Sandlot and other vendors will be on hand with festive food for the event. (1703 Aliceanna St; 410-299-8480)
 
This Federal Hill bar is aptly acknowledging the coinciding drinking holidays on May 5 with their Cinco de Derby party. Start off the day with bottomless brunch ($15 crushes, sangria, bloody marys, and mimosas) from 10 AM- 3 PM, then stick around for Derby Day drinks and the races, including options for reserved tables with drink packages including:

Silver Table Package $200:
1 bottle of premium liquor
1 bucket of domestic beer

Gold Table Package $250:
1 bottle of super premium liquor
2 buckets of domestic beer
2 bottles of GH Mumm

Platinum Table Package $300:
1 bottle of top shelf liquor
3 buckets of domestic beer
2 bottles of GH Mumm

Email events@thecharlesbaltimore.com for reserved tables. (1110 South Charles Street; 410-727-2333)
