1. Palmares Azotea

Calle de Durango 216, Roma Nte., 06700 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico

Ready to get started? Palmares Azotea is the first stop on your Roma rooftop bar crawl.

This upscale seafood spot has good food but is even better known for the drinks and open-air views.

Here, fresh air and lush greenery infuse the atmosphere with relaxed, calm vibes and make this the perfect place to begin your rooftop bar crawl. So, order up a few chilled afternoon drinks to enjoy before moving on to your next destination!

Next, walk nine minutes / 700 m to Hotel Condesa DF

2. Hotel Condesa DF

Av. Veracruz 102, Roma Nte., 06700 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico

Couches, umbrellas, sunshine, and peace high above the streets of Roma. Hotel Condesa DF is a consistent favorite for visitors to Mexico City because it provides an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds below.

If you’re hungry, order some sushi to munch on while you watch the world go by beneath your feet. Then, all too soon it’s time to bid Hotel Condesa DF goodbye and move on to the next stop!

Next, walk 14 minutes / 1 km to Mercado Roma

3. Biergarten at Mercado Roma

Calle Querétaro 225, Roma Nte., 06700 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico

Beer drinkers beware, once you visit this classic beer garden at Mercado Roma you may never want to leave.

I have a soft spot in my heart for the Biergarten because it’s where Dan and I unwound after our first (of now, unfortunately, many) earthquakes in Mexico City. After one rocks you and the buildings around you at  7.5 on the Richter scale a few beers is a must, and for us, the Biergarten was just the place.

It’s on top of the bustling Mercado Roma (which is best visited in the day, but nice at night as well) and serves up craft beer from Mexico and around the world like Cucapa, Hofbrau, and more.

Next, walk 7 minutes / 500 m to Balmori Roofbar

4. Balmori Roofbar

Zacatecas 139, Roma Nte., 06700 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico

Modern, chic, and stylish just like the neighborhood around it, Balmori Roofbar is one of the most beautiful rooftop bars in Roma.

The trendy restaurant and bar is known for its inventive cocktails and will take your taaste buds on a journey far beyond the typical Corona beers that Mexico is known for. The cocktails start around 130 mxn / 6.50 usd and up and the restaurant serves up beer, wine, champagne, and food as well.

Check out the 18-page menu which is sure to please even the most adventurous cocktail-lovers!

Next, walk 10 minutes / 800 m to Peluqueria Los Insurgentes


5. Peluqueria Los Insurgentes

Av. Insurgentes Sur 226, Roma Nte., 06700 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico

Finally, finish your Mexico City rooftop bar crawl through Roma at Peluqueria Los Insurgentes, which Dan and I have been to twice but yet, still have zero photos of it (make of that what you will).

This multi-floor bar specializes in pulque, a thick alcoholic beverage made from agave plants. It’s known as ‘the drink of the Aztec Gods’ and currently enjoying a resurgence in Mexico. So, experience some of the country’s ancient culture with a glass of the pulque natural or the more palatable pulque curado flavored with fruit.

Peluqueria Los Insurgentes features live music in the evenings, a rooftop terrace (of course), and is open late into the night, so it’s the perfect place to rest your weary feet and celebrate a bar crawl well done!
