I only joined the business a mere 23 years ago 😊, Café Pacifico was set up by an iconic figure in the drinks industry named Tomas Estes with his partner at the time Jenny Estes.
Tom grew up in California next to a Mexican neighbour and fell in love with the country, travelling over the border many times and enjoying tequila at a young age in Tijuana. In his late 20’s he went to Amsterdam and set up the first Café Pacifico before setting up in Paris, London in 1982 and many more European cities.
We believe Café Pacifico is the first UK Mexican bar and restaurant and nobody has ever contested us on this. What Tom found really interesting was that so many different cultures would come together to promote the beauty of Mexico through the business.
