Where to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Philly

Cinco de Mayo is one of the biggest party days of the year—and there are plenty of ways to get in on the fun right near your Dalian on the Park apartment. Whether you’re looking to chow down on tacos or indulge in some top-shelf tequila, the Mexican cultural celebration provides a great excuse to get out and about with friends or family and enjoy the neighborhood’s exciting nightlife and dining options. Many eateries and bars will get in on the fun of the holiday, but for a truly genuine Cinco de Mayo outing, you should scout out the most authentic Mexican hot spot.

One of those is Copabanana, a longtime staple in University City, about 2.5 miles from your Dalian on the Park apartment. Like its counterpart on South Street, Copabanana—or Copa, as regulars call it—specializes in Mexican cuisine, putting its own creative spin on many favorites. While the menu offers plenty to entice, the atmosphere is just as exciting! Since it’s located on the campus of University of Pennsylvania, Copa has a very young and upbeat vibe to it, so if partying is on your agenda for Cinco de Mayo, this is your spot. Inside you’ll find lots of fun and festive Mexican décor, and the ceiling-to-floor windows, as well as outdoor seating, make this a prime spot for the spring.

You’re also in luck this year, as Cinco de Mayo falls on a Sunday, and Copa serves weekend brunch from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Enjoy Bloody Marys and Mimosas for just $4 and dig in to the brunch menu, which includes more than a half-dozen omelet varieties, burritos, huevos rancheros and much more. If you come later in the day, you’ll want to check out Copa’s Mexican Classics menu, featuring an assortment of tacos, fajitas and enchiladas—all with just the right amount of spice! And no Cinco de Mayo meal is complete, of course, without a margarita. Copa serves up an impressive 60 different types of tequila so you can have your drink made exactly to your liking, and served as a classic lime or in one of 10 different fruit flavors.

If you haven’t yet checked out Copabanana (or are looking for a reason to return), make a date for Cinco de Mayo!
