High above the tangled streets, rooftop bars offer panoramic views across Mexico City. Sip a mezcal cocktail or cold Corona at one of these elevated watering holes.
It’s common to see the same square-shaped, multi-story buildings crop up across Mexico City. Since the rooftop is flat, residential buildings use the space to dry laundry. Commercial spots plop a bar on top. Rooftop bars and terraces are a popular way for chilangos, as locals are known, to kill an afternoon or enjoy a rowdy night out. Whether it’s the spot downtown with booming reggaetón or one of the most exclusive terrazas in town, you’ll find it here. Read on for the top rooftop bars with views across the Mexican capital.
Take a pew at this rooftop bar along the busy Avenida Álvaro Obregón in Roma, which offers prime views of the nearby skyscrapers. Come to Supra to relax – booths are cushy and hand-woven rugs line the floors – and watch friends split a hookah setup (the bar has its own flavors). Cocktails are creative, including a gin and soursop liqueur mix and a fruity guava, hibiscus and vodka spritzer.
Looking for somewhere to rest? Stay in a hotel that you’ll be talking about forever, or treat yourself to one of the best luxury boutique hotels in the capital, now bookable via Culture Trip.
