Day 1 - Mexico City


A great way to begin a long weekend of music, lounge bars, trendy restaurants and high end spots is to see the city from up above. The Castillo de Chapultepec is a stunning view of what lays ahead as well as a fascinating look into the lives of the only emperors Mexico ever had. Follow this up with a few lazy tapas and delicious wine at Atrio, have a rest and head over to Paxia for an amazing meal before jazzing the night away at the single best jazz club in the city.

Day 2 - Mexico City


Breakfast at one of the most enticing restaurants in the perenially hip and tremendously popular neighbourhood of La Condesa. Follow it by a tour of the area where shopping, cafe-hopping and art deco architecture-watching can be done for hours. Later on get your engines started with a few cocktails at the 1920's Hollywod influenced lounge bar T Gallery or try one of the hundreds of tequilas at the Destileria. The Hookah Lounge is a great place for a light, middle eastern influenced snack while listening to a great house DJ. End the night with a rowdy voyage into Plaza Garibaldi where you can sing to the top of your lungs to serenading mariachis and have a delicious meal at Tenampa.

Day 3 - Mexico City


Start with a tour of San Angel neighbourhood where trendy, unusual and very sophisticated souvenir shops compete for space with artists, cafes bars and restaurants in a colonial vibe. Enjoy a sophisticated and mega trendy meal at the ever popular - and hard to get reservations- Sud 77. Head over to the south where you can walk along the country getaway home of Dolores Olmedo, one of Mexico's wealthiest art patron of this century and head to Xochimilco where you can party for a few hours on a floating boat (you can hire bands, rent a stereo system and purchase drinks and food from other floating boats). Either head to Ixchel for cocktails and a lounge atmosphere or to La Bodeguita del Medio for top notch Cuban cigars and food. If there is still wind in your sails, La Bipolar is a great option for after hours music and dancing.
