Our nightlife expert Jocan Deka takes you straight to the pulse of Mexico City Bars

Our nightlife expert is Jocan Deka. Jocan is best known as a Mexico City Boilerroom DJ, the global branded music event showcasing the vanguard of underground electronic music .  

Jocan maintains his weekly residencies with the core crew of nightclub promotos, so he is a comfortable expert in both the hipster bar scene and lesser known nightlife hotspots.  This key to the tour, because he is always on top of what is new and happening in the city. Be it who has an award-winning mixologist, where to find a mezcal bar with no signs or advertising, or which clubs are on the rise, which ones are on their way out (and why).

We had a great time. Jocan was super easy to talk to and the places we went to  were really off the radar. Great interiors. Lots of good people. And style!

Hanky Panky is a good example of an underground bar that was exceptional before diehard coolhunters had even invented the word 'hipster'.

mexico city bars - underground & dive

From the exotic, to the local, we've got you covered.

Mexico City is like Melbourne, Montreal, or Hong Kong. It likes hidden bars that haven't become famous yet.
It also takes A LOT of pride in its mixology scene. And its interiors. There is very good reason that three of the Best Bars of the World (2017) are located in Mexico City.
We promise we WON'T be taking you to those bars however!! That would be too easy. And you can find your way there on your own. 
No, instead we will be taking you to the hotspots that our best bartenders escape to n their night off. The bars that are the rising stars of the neighbourhood,, but don;'t yet have articles about them in Esquire, Robb Report or Travel + Leisure.

We mix up the program with our favourite tacos & pub snacks so you can pace yourself over the evening.

We usually get to a minimum of three bars within the 4 hour tour time. We like to mix up the style of bar we go to, so if you have a special request or genre lets us know. it's a private tour so Jocan is there for you and anly you!

For a bar to get on our list it has to have a) iawesome decor with great mixologists OR b) be an-off-the-radar-best-of-its-kind dive bar, OR  c) a  speakeasy with style OR d) a purist's mezcal joint.

mexico city bars - we say NO to neon backpacker get drunk pubs

We really don't need to say this, but just to be clear....
We say NO to NEON, sports bars or anything with a 24hour TV screen. 


A great night out needs to have some elements of spontaneity & go-with-the-flow, but here's the basic guideline to get to you started.

1) Meet Jocan at the meeting point in the vibrant cosmopolitan La Condesa neighbourhood.

2)  Walk to the first bar of the night

3) Grab some off the wall top notch unusual Mexican  ready to go food

4) Uber it to the next bar. Time is precious!

5) Grab something to eat if you wish.

6)Uber it to thenext secret watering hole.

7) If there's time for a fourth stop, let's squeeze it in!
If not, Jocan makes sure you are safe in your Uber heading to your onward destination.

We had (another) wonderful experience bar and restaurant hopping in La Roma. Jocan knows some incredible places and was able to read the vibe of the group and point us in the right direction - I guess it's the professional DJ in him! I have gone out lots of times in Mexico City, but it's so different with an insider who knows where to go. Having Jocan with us also eliminated the need to constantly check the map, discuss where to go next, and worry about group logistics. If you are going out with some friends for an evening on the town, and you want to hit some cool spots, having Jocan as part of your crew is the right move!
