Big rowdy group wants mexican downtown

I am looking for a restaurant downtown for a big group of 20-somethings to celebrate a birthday. We are hoping for somewhere loud and crowded and fun, preferably Mexican but open to other ideas. Someone suggested Tortilla Flats, but thats a little bit too far west.

  1. Dos Caminos in Soho on West B'way and Houston. It's Mexican fusion. Good vibe, crowd 20s-30s, great neighborhood. Cool decor, food is good, must have their home made guacamole. Trendy, people watching scene.

    1. Paladar has great food and great margaritas. I'd definitely recommend it! As for Tortilla Flats, the food is absolutely awful, the margaritas were terrible, and the scene is kind of nightmare college spring break in the worst part of cancun. Good luck!

        Not just nightmare spring break, but packed so tight you can't move.
