Have an El Camino Christmas

Merry Christmas! Feliz Navidad! Happy Hanukah! Joyous Kwanzaa! Festivus for the rest of us! However you celebrate the holiday season, El Camino is in full support. We don’t even mind if you’re embracing total Scrooge-mode this year. Although, if you’re feeling more Grinch than grateful in December, we believe our new scratch margarita will conjure the holiday cheer. As Oliver Twist once said, “Please, sir, I want some more.”

Whether you were naughty or nice (or feeling a little of both), whether you sat on Santa’s lap or kicked him in the rear, whether you’re finished shopping or haven’t even started, El Camino is here for you. Because, really, sometimes the best respite from such a dizzying season is a cozy, candlelit Mexican bar in Seattle. You feel me?

Once the holiday stress is washed away and your belly is full of delicious carne asada tacos and sugar plum mezcal fairies are dancing in your dreams, you’ll understand the true meaning of the season… what’s going on for New Year’s Eve?

We have an awesome suggestion! Why not visit the Mexico of your mind for a special laid-back and celebratory New Year’s Eve in Fremont?

2016 is almost behind us (Thank Goodness!) and El Camino wants to count down to 2017 with you. We suggest dinner reservations but you can probably squeeze into the bar if you’re making last minute NYE plans. As always we will feature captivating food, exceptional drinks and plenty of party music.

And don’t forget brunch on New Year’s Day. A little huevos entomatados or capirotada (Mexi-French toast) and maybe a Bloody Mary will help you start 2017 off right.

El Camino is nestled behind Triangle Spirits (bar-hopping encouraged), right next to the famous Rocket in the sweet spot of Fremont (aka “the Center of the Universe”). 607 N 35th St, Seattle, WA 98103, where you can escape for a momentary Mexican getaway with the most authentic, house-made Mexican food Seattle has to offer. We are open for lunch and brunch too.

Rent our private patio for a holiday party! Our enclosed deck with fireplace holds 35-40 guests for seated private dining or up to 50 for standing cocktail parties. You can order directly from the El Camino menu or we can help you design a custom event spread. Family style and buffet are available.

  • Seattle Summer Solstice Parade

    Is summer actually here? I see a bright orb in the sky and I feel the warmth on my skin. I waited with 200 other people at rush hour for the Fremont Bridge to go down. The Mariners have already had a couple tailspins. Seattle summer must be happening! You know what that means? Summer […]

  • Cinco de Mayo in Seattle

    It’s not every year that Cinco de Mayo falls on a Friday. Excited Americans, even those progressive thinkers in Seattle, celebrate this blip in Mexican history with tequila-fueled gusto and the Friday factor should only raise the bar (raze the bar?). So tell your friends to meet you at El Camino for the best happy […]
