Condesa-Roma

OUR NEIGHBORHOOD

Nestled in a beautiful and intriguing neighborhood renowned for its Art Deco architecture, La Condesa has evolved into the bohemian and culinary hub of the city.

Situated in the central area, it encompasses the neighborhoods of Condesa, Hipódromo, and Hipódromo-Condesa. Its origins trace back to 1902 when it was built on the grounds of the Condesa de Miravalle Hacienda. The former mansion of this estate now serves as the residence of the Soviet Union embassy. Av. Ámsterdam, one of its main avenues, was once the racetrack of the Mexico City Jockey Club, giving it its distinctive elliptical shape.

La Condesa boasts two prominent parks: Parque México, adorned with jacaranda trees and artificial lakes, features an outdoor Art Deco theater where weekend performances delight visitors. The other, Parque España, hosts a sculpture resembling an open hand in honor of President Lázaro Cárdenas, who extended aid to Spanish refugees during their civil war.

By night, a bohemian atmosphere prevails, with an array of restaurants, bars, and venues offering music and dancing. Wander the streets of Amsterdam, Tamaulipas, Nuevo León, and Michoacán to savor cuisines ranging from Arabic to Argentine, Italian to French, Cuban to Japanese, Mediterranean to Mexican. You’ll also discover charming boutiques, bookstores, furniture shops, and stores offering unique items.
