Area

Polanco
Rooftop Lounge

While it may not have the same see-and-be-seen status it enjoyed when Hotel Habita first opened a decade ago, the Area rooftop lounge still warrants a sunset cocktail or two—not least for the fantastic views over Polanco. (The bar also screens movies on the wall of a neighboring building.) Order a mezcal as you watch the city light up at night.
