Owner description: Barrio Alameda is a charming little shopping gallery in the heart of Mexico City, a walking distance from Centro Historico, filled with history, tradition and shops selling a mix of local design and lifestyle products. Built in the late 1920s, this family-run Art Deco “galeria comercial” provides the perfect environment for relaxation and could serve as a “sanctuary” from all the surrounding buzz of the big metropolitan city thanks to its peaceful atmosphere and greenery planted everywhere. The Barrio Alameda visitors can enjoy a range of shops and services the place has to offer 7 days a week; from food and drink or health and beauty to Mexican indigenous and modern arts and crafts, to a tattoo studio and yoga classes, everyone can find their favourite. On the third floor of the building, there is a modern designy boutique B&B which adds to the gallery’s unique vibe. Last but not least, Barrio Alameda has a large rooftop terrace which hosts several events per month and from where you can watch the Mexico City skyline with Alameda Central, the first public park in the Americas, in front, or just enjoy the life go by with a coffee, beer or a typical Mexican Mezcal. The gallery welcomes single travellers, couples, families or groups; whatever “package” you come as, there is enough choice for all tastes and preferences at Barrio Alameda.

If you are in downtown you can enjoy this beautiful refurbished building. Hungry? Try a Marquesita, delicious ice cream, mexican tacos or even great hamburgers and pizza. There is a small nice terrace on the fourth floor looking to the park. Shopping? You will find interesting stores with local mexican designers products.

This is a place where you can find great options to eat, shopping mexican utensils, shoes, clothes, vinyls, and a perfect choice to try the best mezcal in town in "Mundana" (please try the cocktails with mezcal and the guacamole y chapulines/grasshopper). It is right besides Alameda Park, so if you are going around downtown this should be your option for a large break!!

Do some exercise and climb four flours to the rooftop of this 1930's building overlooking the Alameda and all the wonderful colonial churches surrounding it. The contrast with the XXI century architecture of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is amazing. Have a local brew from Colima, enjoy portobello mushroom au gratin or a grilled cheese sandwich. Fun and bohemian.

A hipster oasis in the city center. Really nice to take a walk, buy curiosities and have a drink. The shop "Utilitario Mexicano" a must!
