Neon Cactus Leeds, (Or, How I managed to get a Three Day hangover)

I am 40 years old, I can honestly say it has been a LONG time since I have ended my evening throwing up into a washing up bowl.

How did I get here?   
Let me explain the recipe for a great hangover.

First you need a great setting.

Based on Call Lane, Neon Cactus has a great reputation for its Mexican inspired food and the setting is both vibrant and cool, making it a great place to eat.

Throw in a large helping of good friends.  Ally, Lucinda, Laura, Lizi, Ellie, Lucy, Emma, Grace and Jamie.

A dash of shots. Tequila, of course.

Marinade quickly in various cocktails,

Add a dash of delicious food.

Before adding more cocktails and time. 

Leave to develop slowly over a few hours of laughter, food and alcohol, making sure that the alcohol content does not drop below a certain level, and voila. You have created a three day hangover and I REGRET NOTHING.

This was the most fun evening I have spent with friends in a long time. I must admit I have never been to Neon Cactus before, but I definitely want to go back and experience a meal there, we tried some bits off the menu which were tasty, but I need MOREEEEEEEEEEEEFEEEE. Also, as a side note, the Espresso Martini, called I Love You Like XO, is the BEST one I have ever tasted. A great place to go in Leeds, go as a couple, go in a large group, just GO, It is at 35 Call Lane in Leeds and you won't regret it, not even a tiny bit.

*I was invited to Neon Cactus as part of an event, my words, as always, are all my own. 


  1. Oh my days this night was bloody brilliant. I'm a long time fan of Neon Cactus and I will remain a long time fan as I just love it. Also, their staff are really nice.

    1. It was the best night in ages wasn't it? I loved every minute of the evening. I did not love the next 3 days quite so much
