Mexico City a new hip destination...

mexico city
Cool Mexico City!  We know that, of course!  As do most of our Spanish students who live in the trendy Condesa/Roma, near our office. We might not agree with everything here, but still, an interesting article!

Miami Beach? Forget about it. If you’re looking for a hip destination with killer restaurants, creative hotels, clubs and interesting people, head south of the border because Mexico City is becoming the place to be for a true hip vacation.
Not that Mexico wasn’t hip before. Once upon a time in the fifties Acapulco was the hip and exotic destination for the jet-set crowd. And Mexico City has always had its own edge, but its hipness was few and far between, and most of the hip joints in town were only imitations of hip places elsewhere. But now, Mexico City, the place that was once synonymous with pollution and crime, is rivaling American and European cities with its own unique trendiness.
Places to stay: Check out the hip Condesa df Hotel in the overly hip Condesa neighborhood. If you’re into modern design and want to chill at an ultra cool rooftop bar, this is the place for you.
If you’re looking for something more traditional, but cool, check into the DOWNTOWN Mexico hotel in, you guessed it, downtown or Centro Historico. This cool hotel blends colonial architecture with an industrial edge and it’s right smack in center of a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Food for thought: Sure, back in the day everyone knew about some choice restaurants in San Angel and La Zona Rosa. But nothing compares to Pujol in the fancy Polanco neighborhood. . . Read more:
