Hidden from the hustle and bustle of James Street’s main precinct lies Carmen Tequileria. With an exposed interior, beautifully crafted Mexican sharing style dishes and curated cocktails, Carmen’s intimate and sophisticated restaurant and bar is the perfect venue to escape into. James Street’s best kept secret is awaiting you. Boasting small batch artisanal mezcals along with a large selection of tequila and agave based spirits, Carmen is not labelled a tequileria for nothing. Carmen delivers an elevated menu alongside only the finest hand-crafted signature cocktails coupled with an extensive wine menu.
ZERO WASTE MISSION
We have made it Carmen’s mission to create a cocktail menu that is as close to zero-waste as possible and our dedication to sustainability has led us to embrace different techniques. From this we can reduce our reliance on energy intensive food production methods as well as transport in turn reducing our overall carbon footprint. To support our efforts, we are dedicated to exploring new techniques for upcycling ingredients, with the goal of achieving 100% zero-waste.
