Bars & Cafes
The "Baroque" is well known for its great live music and upbeat, lively atmosphere by the hip and young Regiomontana (residents) of Monterrey. The establishment is also known for the diverse events that take place here—including book presentations, lectures, fashion shows and other events. Spacious with a unique facade painted in bronze with flags hanging from its walls, bands play here regularly. Do not miss Friday night entertainment when there is an open bar.
Located in the Plaza Fiesta San Agustín shopping centre, this restaurant/bar is nestled between Sears and JC Penney. It is ideal for dinnertime after a day of shopping. Sit back and enjoy a hearty meal or just a refreshing cocktail. International cuisine is on the menu as well as oriental accented dishes. Bar service is fast and offers a variety of drinks. Happy Hour begins at 7pm when drinks are 2-for-1.
When young people go out, they head to the Barrio Antiguo—the old part of town. Eighty percent of the city's nightlife is found along these narrow streets and on Calle Padre Mier one of the most popular bars is found here. The "Old River Bar" has a simple and uncomplicated approach to its decoration. People flock here after dining in a restaurant nearby to listen to good music, dance and enjoy. Live bands play commercial hits in the evenings.
Don't miss the great performances that take place weekly at La Tumba. Acoustic rock and easy listening music makes La Tumba stand out from the rest. La Tumba also features poetry readings which entertains a diverse and fun local crowd.
This lobby bar of the Hotel Crowne Plaza is one of the best-known, frequented by Monterrey businesspeople. There is nothing more practical than having a space to share with your friends or future associates just a few steps from your room. The music is varied and allows for easy conversation, though it livens up as the night progresses and the ambience becomes festive enough to let loose on the dance floor.
Are you in for sumptuous breakfast? Visit Las Sombrillas located in the lobby of elegant and chic Crowne Plaza Monterrey. Once you are through with your fitness regime, reward yourself with a delightful breakfast. Add fun to a lazy and dull afternoon with the light snacks and catch up with your pals over a cup of hot coffee. Fresh and fine ingredients enhance the flavor of the dishes. For a hassle free experience, do visit Las Sombrillas.
The Ancira Hotel is one of the most traditional in Monterrey and its Bar 1900 is no exception. It resembles a pub with classic English decor and chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, dark wooden-furniture and tenuous lighting. Intimate enough to meet with friends over drinks, and appetizers, the varied music allows for easy conversation. Snacks are available and live music occurs nightly after 9pm. There is no cover charge.
The Iguana Bar is a great place to stop by to unwind and admire the interesting art decor. The place plays mostly rock and alternative music, as well as live metal performances. Call or check the website for a listing of nightly performances.
Ibex Rock Bar is a haven for rock fans as there's a constant line-up of DJs and rock bands performing at this hugely popular Monterrey nightclub. Most performances start at 8p or 9p and you'll find many tributes to all-time rock greats like Metallica and Iron Maiden. Bands on tour also make a stop at Ibex before heading on to their next destination. Some shows also allow entry to under-18s; check the website for further information.
This is definitely an interesting option for a change from the usual, mainstream club or disco atmosphere. This nightspot's edgy, alternative style is the setting for live bands playing unreleased and non-commercial hard rock sounds and attracts an underground crowd. Like most of the surrounding area, the facade is colonial with heavy doors and wooden window frames. The prices are moderate and from 9pm to 11pm, the beers are an affordable 2-for-1.
Rock House Bar is a great venue in Monterrey to check out the live music scene in the city. Several local and international bands perform here to a packed house. Live rock music being the highlight here, don't miss this venue if you're a fan of the genre.
Rodeos are a tradition in the northern part of the country. This is a variation of a discotheque but implies an entire way of dressing and dancing as the Regiomontano (a resident of Monterrey) does. The music is mainly northern and country spun out by DJs and played by live bands. For the daring cowboy or girl, a ride on a heifer completes the night. The appropriate attire is jeans, cowboy boots and cowboy hat.
