1.   Jazzatlán Capital


Jazzatlán has been open in Mexico for over 14 years; nevertheless, it has only been entertaining patrons in Mexico City for four years by nurturing and bringing happiness to the ears and mouths of jazz lovers in the area. Founded initially in Cholula, Puebla, under the same name, this space has a restaurant and a taproom.

Get your brew on with their ice-cold craft beer, traditional Mexican food, and magnificent live music. 

This place is a “must” for national musicians and practically any international jazz player that dares visit the city.

Something important you must know about Jazzatlán Capital is that they have a social program known as “#ACOMER” which donates part of their profits to feed impoverished people. 


Where: Guanajuato 239, Roma Norte, Cuauhtémoc 

Hours: Tuesday – Sunday 6:00 pm - 12:00 am 


2.   Zinco Jazz Club


Zinco Jazz Club is one of the primary references to jazz in CDMX. Get ready to be immersed in a bar built in a breathtaking underground vault in what used to be the Bank of Mexico, located in the heart of downtown. The ambiance and decoration will transport you directly to the legendary Zinc Jazz Club in New York City or any speakeasy in New Orleans.

Their exact location makes driving and parking highly complex, so we recommend getting a taxi or private transportation. Cheers! This will give you full permission to enjoy 2 or 3 bourbons.

Where: Calle de Motolinia 20, Centro Histórico de la Ciudad de México, Centro, Cuauhtémoc

Hours: Wednesday - Saturday 09:00 pm to closing time


3.   El Convite

This place feels like a quaint restaurant or diner more than a bar. It’s been around for more than 26 years, offering delicious desserts, outstanding Italian food, and authentic jazz for local or tourist music lovers. 

Take into account that it’s a pretty small place, so we recommend you get there early to secure a great spot to listen to and see the musicians at their best. 

Visitors can sign up for their special live jazz and dinner experience every Thursday and Friday. 

Their menu includes a comprehensive list of worldwide imported beer that will help you forget about the quenching summer heat. Remember that “El Convite” is not a club or a bar, so they close at 10 pm.


Where: Ajusco 79 Bis, Portales Sur, Benito Juárez, 03300 Ciudad de México, CDMX

Hours: Monday - Saturday 9:00 am to 6:00 pm

         Thursday - Friday 9:00 am to 10:00 pm
