What everybody loves about Mexico City’s antros (nightclubs) are the great variety and differences that exists between them, and somehow they can all be frequented by the same people. For example, the same hipster guy that has had a great night at a transvestite club on a lonely street downtown, can have just as fun the next week drinking craft cocktails at a trendy spot in La Roma.
Antro nights in the city begin on Wednesday. If you appear young, you will be asked for an ID — and if you’re not over 18 or you do not bring it with you, they won’t let you in. In almost all of the antros there are also bouncers — called in Mexico “cadeneros”— who can be a real pain in the ass at the moment of letting people pass. The tip is to be patient and kind, but determined. Foreigners get in easier; the cadeneros are tougher with locals. Once you pass the front door, everything is maximum fun.
So, are you ready to know which the best clubs in town are? Here you go — there are options for all styles and budgets.
