Shoot a tequila for the original Tacolicious. The taco joint that won over Shanghai with its double-shelled tacos is closing its first location on Yueyang Lu on July 31. But it's not all doom and gloom – the Jingan location is still very much alive and there will be a load of deals through the last week of July.

In their statement, announced via WeChat, the team said: 'It's been a crazy and wild ride, and even though we feel it's just the beginning of an incredible adventure (over in Jingan), we have to say goodbye to this very special spot. BUT we’re not going quietly.' They're saying a fond farewell to the original location with a party next Saturday (July 25) from 6pm till late, including three-for-100RMB on select drinks, free tequila shots and more. Then, from Sunday 25 through to the final day on Friday 31, they'll be doing happy hour drinks all day in an effort to drink the place dry.

One in a string of closures around the Yueyang/Dongping Lu block over the past few years, the latest cull at the end of July will also see longtime resident The Camel being rehomed. The team are set to announce the sports bar's new location at their moving party, also on Saturday 25.
