For a handful of years, nightlife in Monterrey virtually disappeared thanks to high levels of violence and insecurity. Fortunately, the city’s back and better than ever, and along with restaurants and brewpubs, several great new electronic music clubs have opened up. Taking advantage of a the former home of AURA, a Monterrey club known for its electronic dance music that closed down during the tough years, French Fried is a new electronic venue – with splashes of every other kind of musical genre as well – for Regios and visitors alike.
