They have a bar for every style of person and every personality. Romantic places like Tres Lunas are my favorite, which is more of a cafe. Bars are fun at night, a great place to drink with friends!

The barrio Antiguo is a section of Monterrey that is on hold in time. all the constructions there are from the late 1800's and are very well kept. Some are transformed inside into restaurants and bars which are great. Very safe zone with many friendly people

Used to be a great place to be on Saturday night and to stroll on Sundays. Unfortunately I do not think it is still as safe as it used to be. Best to go in a group if you choose to and take a taxi back.

I was surprised to find this place well and alive, if you know what I mean. On a Saturday night it had a amicable atmosphere, typical of northerners. There are plenty of places to choose from, such as restaurants, music and clubs is up to you. Pay attention to where you park, is best to take a taxi.

There are plenty of art museums, galleries, and little shops to occupy a person for an afternoon. The best day of all to go, though, is Sunday afternoon for the street market which includes local crafts, antiques, and just about everything in between. The restaurants in the Barrio range from cheap to very expensive and there are many types of... More

I've frequented Barrio Antiguo during my stay in MTY and had a great time every time. There are a plethora of bars, nightclubs and restaurants. During the weekend days there is even a market on some of the back streets that sells an array of mexican arts and crafts.

This neighborhood has old Mexican architecture in downtown Monterrey, with restaurants, bars, small art galleries and a few hostels. It has good day and night ambient but I think the whole area needs improvements in building facades and urban infrastructure, moreover in the quality of the streets pavement. Still you can go on weekend mornings to have a good Mexican... More
