Parker and Lenox is a little easier to locate, but you will need to call ahead and make a reservation to slip into their backroom jazz house and sit for a spell in the plush and seedy darkness. Not exactly a speakeasy, but with the lowest of profiles is Xaman, has an earthy and esoteric decor and a dash of inevitable chilango chic. Each of the cocktails has a hashtag to help you craft your night: #ecstasy #audacity #nostalgia.
HOP: The Beer Experience was one of the first-comers as far as new bars in the neighborhood and they have a sweet selection of Mexico City beers and a cozy handful of tables where you can watch the game or the people passing by. If you are looking for a little sweet at the end of the day, try out the Amapola bakery – green tea croissants, lemon poppy muffins, lemon-mayo cucumber sandwiches – or the cafe on the bottom floor of the Museo del Chocolate where you buy gourmet chocolate from all over the country or drink a steaming hot cup on a rainy afternoon.
