Contemporary Mexican restaurant Peyote in Mayfair has been transformed into an enclave of deepest, darkest Mexico City in the run up to El Día de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead. Beautifully dressed with colourful skulls and traditional marigolds especially for the occasion, this week brings a series of spirited events and festivities to Peyote, celebrating the iconic Mexican festival and giving you the chance to get involved…

Watch and learn as the resident Cocktail Shaman channels the spirits of your ancestors to recommend the perfect mezcal, or turn mixologist for the night and fix your own cocktail before dancing on the bar. Yes, really. Just like Piper Perabo in cult film Coyote Ugly, tonight it’s your turn to break it down as Peyote Ugly returns for one night only. This evening of high-octane entertainment will see guests encouraged to slink on top of the restaurant bar to muddle their own margaritas before unleashing their most sassy moves – we managed the splits at the launch party last night so the heat is on.

Peyote will continue to host live music and DJs all week right through until 2am on Saturday 1 November, when the connection between the living and the dead is said to be most potent. El Día de los Muertos might be a Mexican import, but what’s the harm in borrowing an excuse for a party?
