Downtown México

Centro Histórico
Rooftop Bar

The rooftop terrace at this chic boutique hotel on picturesque Isabel la Católica has a cool, laid-back vibe (although it can get crowded on weekends). The cocktails are delicious (if somewhat pricey for Mexico) and the views of Centro Histórico are breathtaking—particularly after dark, when the magnificent cathedral on the zocalo is illuminated. Call before visiting: the space occasionally closes for private events.
