In September 2017, an earthquake impacted Roma, Mexico City’s most beloved colonia, causing devastation all over the area. But, local artisans, chefs and residents restored and revitalized the area, which now overflows with diverse dining options and nightlife as well as varying architectural styles.
Located in the vibrant Colonia Roma neighborhood, home to Ciudad de Mexico’s trendy creative class, Ignacia Guest House is an ultra-gorgeous and exclusive bed and breakfast, featuring chic rooms and a not-to-miss bar.
Here are the drinks to sip while at the Garden Bar at Mexico City’s Ignacia Guest House.
