“Restaurant and bar, a perfect place to go in the afternoon with family or at night with friends. It is spacious and airy, but it is usually noisy and has the sporting events of the day on TV screens. I recommend the aguachile, the breaded fish steak or the tuna toast! $$$+”

“El Imperial is one of the best live music venues in Mexico City, particularly for fans of rock and electronica. It’s a popular club, favoring all that is vintage and antique, and frequented by hipsters and lovers of the alternative. The venue itself is a two-storey building, with a stage on the first floor and a pulsating dance floor on the second floor, which is known as ‘El Room’. Usually, national rock bands perform at El Imperial, but it is not uncommon for international bands to take to the stage.”

“Located in Roma Norte, Balmori was built in order to give the locals a haven away from the crowded streets. Balmori bar is named after a well-known personality from the area at the start of the last century – an icon of Mexico’s elite famous for his partying habits and love of fun. The bar itself lives up to this name, as an exhilarating night is guaranteed for those who visit. This bar is a beautiful work of architecture, with modern and innovative designs, and makes for a very enjoyable and refreshing location for a late night drink.”

“One of Mexico City’s oldest and most famous watering holes, Salon Tenampa is a classic Mexican cantina with Mexican cuisine, tequila and beer galore, and dozens of hovering bands of Mariachis. Right on Garibaldi Square (the place to hear mariachi music in Mexico City), this bar is a party from the moment it opens till it closes in the early morning hours. You may have to wait in line if you come at peak hours, but it’s worth it just to say you’ve been there (and that you took photos!).”

“By day, the Covadonga's denizens are generally old Spanish guys playing dominoes and eating traditional Asturian delicacies like tortilla espanola, but by night it's a whole different demographic that flocks here. Young local hipsters arrive around 7pm to begin their night out with a few beers—and shots—among friends. It's an old cantina—a traditional drinking den—and the futbol is always on TV, the aging waiters wear prim black vests over starchy white shirts, and the interiors haven't had a makeover in what feels like 50 years. It's comforting to know, though, that even in the Roma, one of the hippest parts of town, some places never change.”
