I liked Pata Negra, it's like the hipster bar of the Centro Historico. The interior was decorated nicely, kind of a library theme, and was very cozy. The drink selections were good and my coworker and I both enjoyed our drinks (I had a beer, she had a margarita). We didn't eat here so I can speak to the food... More

Restaurant near the Zocalo. Not many patrons when we were there. Service was good but the food not that creative. I ordered calamari on a baguette roll and it came without seasonings or lettuce or anything.. I put a lot of spicy sauce on it and then it tasted ok.

I went there twice, once to eat for lunch and the food was really good, the meat was exquisite and the service was perfect as well. We went again to have a late drink, the service was perfect again! The ambiance is very nice and cosy, there were 2 dj putting very nice music.

It's a good option to dance and have fun with friends. The only problem is: The place is small and full of people. But, in general, it's not a bad idea.

A e bar with good atmosphere, I went together with a work college. Drinks are good and in general a good crowd. The live music was also very nice. We orders a taster platter with a mix of Mexican foods it was very nice.

We dined here on a Monday night, so it was relative quiet. The food was OK, though certainly not worth going out of your way for. The service was extremely poor - the staff were standing behind the bar looking bored and sullen, ignoring empty drinks sitting in front of us. They then spilt a drink all over my friend,... More

I am not super impressed with this place. All the food is fried and kinda standard. They have a basic liquor menu and beer list. I have heard they have dancing late night on Wednesdays that is supposed to be fun, but I have not been.
