The Five Best Bars In Mexico City For Tourists

We’re here to breakdown the best bars in Mexico City for tourists!

And although that’s a good thing, the abundance of choice can be overwhelming for first time visitors.

But not to worry.

There is a handful of bars that welcome tourists with open arms (and legs) and most of them are located within walking distance of one another.

Now, before I give you the list, a quick disclaimer: These may not be the best bars in Mexico City (at least not by local standards). However, I do believe that they are the best bars for tourists in Mexico City. This means that they might not have the cheapest drinks, best music or prettiest girls, but what they do have is people that are interested in having fun.

Anyway, I’ve wasted enough of your time. Here is the list of the five best bars in Mexico City for tourists:

1.) Patrick Miller

This place has nothing short of a cult following here in Mexico. Check out this video from Vice to see what I mean. But don’t worry, it’s not as strange as YouTube would have you believe – the crazy middle aged people dancing only occurs every second Friday. The rest of the nights of the week you can expect a typical club setting, with a bit of an older crowd. Just an all around fun atmosphere. Drinks aren’t too expensive, and the location in the city is excellent (Colonia Roma).

2.) Pata Negra

If you have ever gone out to a bar in Mexico City as a tourist, this is probably where you ended up. I can see why: last time I checked there was no cover and drinks were cheap. Need I say more? Location is also excellent: safe and surrounded by tons of other bars. Stop by Pata Negra if you haven’t already.

And there you have it. The list of the five best bars in Mexico City for tourists. And the best part? Bars #1, 2 and 3 are walking distance from one another.

Happy travels :).
