You’ll be happy to know the twenty-something party girl inside of me has not been suffocated to death by my current southern domesticated lifestyle!
Of course I’m not coming to one of the largest cities in the world and not finding out how the locals let loose.
So last night we got all dressed up for a night out on the town.
My Fiesta Head to Toe:
— Humidity hair
— Claudia Laboa hoops
— Jean Paul Gautier dress
— Dolce Vita shoes
— 2 silver cuffs
— MCL and turquoise ring
I was excited just to get out, and with Lisa at our side, Renee and I knew we were in for an adventure.
Thankfully this would be the last “pole” I would see tonight ;)
The best place to go for fun restaurants is the Polanco neighborhood. I told you about the strip of restaurants along Lincoln Park, so we headed back there to Ivoire to see if the scene lived up to the hype.
Thankfully our group of three girls could pull a prime table without a reservation. Drinking and eating for hours, we chatted up all the people around us (which could have been tough but we all speak Spanish). I’d say the scene delivered in my book! As you would expect, the food wasn’t fantastic but that’s not why we went anyway.
Two interesting features besides the people:
Purse racks, which most restaurants have here.Why this hasn’t caught on in the States is beyond me.
Unique to Ivoire that won over this southern girl:
I know, this is a little boring, so I’ll move on to the rest of the night/
After a loooong dinner, Lisa hit the horn to scare up some trouble.
As predicted, she did! (Had to instagram the pic. It’s like that first filter was made for Lisa.)
Without any enhancement, check out Marco’s condo.
Quite the unique sense of style….
We grabbed a drink with his group and then made our way to….the mall!
Yep, no joke. Joy, one of the most popular clubs in the city right now is in a mall!
You would be hard pressed to find me anywhere near a club these days, or even out of the house after 11, so I was totally game (with the help of a few martinis of course).
Thankfully we didn’t have to wait in the line and within minutes were in the midst of the party.
Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve been in this kind of crowd. Honestly I was impressed. It looked and felt exactly like a club in New York, Miami, London, you name it. Pretty people, modern furniture, solid remixes, attentive table service. After an hour of dancing we called it quits. So glad we did it. Check that one off for another year :)
When we got back to Condesa around 2am, people were still drinking and partying in the mellow bars and lounges.
The more I learn about this neighborhood the more I love it. If I moved to Mexico City, I’d tuck in here and never need to venture out.
Anyway, the night was a blast. Somehow I was able to get up at 8 and hit the gym before we ventured out to the pyramids. It wasn’t easy, but I did it!!
Next post will be about our day trip to Teotihuacan.
