El Centenario

1) El Centenario

Centrally located in the heart of the popular and trendy La Condesa district of Mexico City amid upscale restaurants, El Centenario is a quaint little cantina that offers a more casual reprieve from its more posh neighbors Though prices are more reasonable here than at some of the hipper nearby establishments, expect to pay more for food and drink here than at other city cantinas with a less chic location. A modest space that fills up fast, particularly on the weekends, El Centenario’s authentic interior décor includes dramatic bullfighting memorabilia, tiled walls, and a handsome wooden bar.
Celtics Condesa

2) Celtics Condesa

This typical Celtic pub, located in the heart of "Condesa", a very well known chic area of Mexico City, features both Irish and British music. Celtics Condesa is furnished with comfortable sofas and oversized arm chairs and is an excellent place for a chat and a few drinks with friends. Once in a while they have bands playing live and this is when many of the regulars don traditional kilts and order several rounds of Guinness. A guaranteed good night out for all concerned!
Pata Negra

3) Pata Negra

An Argentinian-owned bar in the heart of the trendy and fashionable La Codesa district of Mexico City, Pata Negra offers a casual but classy night of entertainment to its guests. The space is divided between the downstairs bar and lounge area where guests can enjoy drinks and tapas to get the night started, while upstairs at Salon Pata Negra hosts live DJs spinning a hot mix of sounds, including pop, hip hop, and more, to a dedicated party crowd on its spacious dance floor on the weekends. Live music found at Pata Negra throughout the week includes an exotic blend of bossa nova, acid jazz, and flamenco music.

4) Rioma

Easily one of Mexico Coty’s hippest nightlife attractions, Rioma attracts an upscale clientele which includes many of the city’s most beautiful people and even the occasional celebrity visit. Multi-colored fiber-optic lighting adds an elegant touch, as well as tables that light up, and columns painted in pink polka dots. In addition to comfy lounge seating upstairs, the downstairs space includes a dance floor and DJ booth where guests get down nightly to a great mix of club favorites, including house, techno, and Euro-pop. Guests are encouraged to dress their very best in order to get past Rioma’s demanding door staff.

Operation Hours: Friday – Saturday: 10 pm — 4 am
Mama Rumba

5) Mama Rumba

Serving as a Cuban restaurant during the daytime, Wednesday through Saturday evenings Mama Rumba offers some of the hottest Latin beats and thrilling nights of dancing found in Mexico City. Popular with a hip crowd of thrill-seeking twentysomethings, when this hot location gets too crowded an alternate branch of the club can be found not too far away in San Angel. Entertainment includes salsa from the house band, as well as other Latin styles including timba, cumbia, and more. Smaller than its sister club, be sure to show up early in order to secure a spot on Mama Rumba’s packed dance floor for the night.
