CitySurfing Orlando’s Picks for Cinco de Mayo 2019 in Central Florida #CincoDeMayo

In the Orlando-area, there are several bars and restaurants that participate in Cinco de Mayo with parties and drink specials. Here are some of the best options we've found.

Cinco de Mayo is an annual holiday in Mexico, which commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over the French forces of Napoleon III on May 5, 1862, at the Battle of Puebla.

American’s celebrate Cinco de Mayo, too, but let’s be honest…it’s mostly an opportunity to celebrate Mexican culture, and enjoy adult Mexican beverages.

Luckily in the Orlando-area, there are several bars and restaurants that participate in Cinco de Mayo with parties and drink specials.

Here are some of the best options we’ve found for imbibing during Cinco de Mayo weekend:
