Ixchel Chelsea London Bar

Mexican restaurant and Tequila bar Ixchel brings Chelsea one of London’s most impressive agave selections alongside a collection of signature cocktails

Ixchel brings Mexican food and premium tequila to Chelsea, offering Londoners the opportunity to pair traditional dishes with one of the UK’s finest agave spirits collections. Mexico-born head chef Ximena Gayosso Gonzalez guides the tapas-style menu, which celebrates the fresh flavors of the Yucatán Peninsula. Guests can expect ceviches, tacos, and tostadas that showcase traditional Tulumnese recipes. The hidden bar’s extensive tequila and mezcal list is one of Europe’s most impressive and also features 20 signature cocktails, including six different margaritas. 

While food and drink are at the heart of Ixchel, it’s the space that creates a truly unique environment. On ground level, light fills the restaurant thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, while the downstairs bar’s mood is dark and seductive. Work from Mexican artists, including hand-woven artworks and sculptures can be found throughout both floors.
