“My favorite bar and mezcaleria in the City, try some really good mezcal (my favorite is Madrecuixe) just remember to always sip it and don't shot it like tequila ;) there is also Pulque (a fermented beverage) and the music and crowd are always interesting and fun, also, try their cheese quesadilla, it comes with crickets, nopal (a cacti) and a delicious sauce, definitely worth trying.”

Bar
“If you're an individual who takes your cocktails/liqueur seriously, Gin Gin is your temple of worship. The stomping ground of Roma's hipster elite, this bar goes out of its way to serve drinks that command respect from any connoisseur. That's not to take anything away from the food, which stands exactly on par; a variance of dishes from tacos to fluffy pizzas, fresh seafood, and beautifully presented desserts. Fashionably presented and a lovely cocktail hour choice, make sure to take advantage of the guest bartenders (they are announced via Gin Gin's FB page) who can mix you up a heady concoction!

Nightclub
$$$
“El Departamento or “the apartment” is exactly as the name suggests, presenting a relaxed space reminiscent of your musician friend’s apartment. Turntables sit in the corner and a evolving roster of local artists’ work adorns the walls, adding to the casually cool nature of the place. Drop by post-dinner and don’t be surprised if the live music turns a quick drink into an evening of dancing and debauchery.”

Jazz Club
“The city’s best jazz bar is hidden underground inside a former bank vault in Centro. Entering feels like walking into a scene from the James Bond’s Spectre, which was set just a few blocks away. The crowd is made up of bohemians, students, intellectuals, business types – anyone who enjoys good music – thanks to nightly live acts ranging from Mexican jazz bands to swing, soul and blues.”

Nightclub
$$$
“This is the after-hours club of Mexico City, often hosting famous international DJs and artists. It’s the kind of place that everyone somehow ends up at, so try your best to get there before 3AM to avoid the chaotic queues on the pavement. The building once belonged to Mexican communist party founder M. N. Roy and was converted into a nightclub by French architects Emmanuel Picault and Ludwig Godefroy. Word of warning: time melts away in dark corners and on the sweaty dancefloor here – before you know it the sun has risen and it’s time to go home.”
