El Pendulo Bookstore
Address: Alejandro Dumas 81, Polanco 5280.4111

El Pendulo’s flagship bookshop in Mexico City’s Zona Rosa boasts Charles Bukowski–themed cocktails, set amid a sprawling, two-story space, with shelf upon shelf of books in all languages and a killer rooftop garden to take in the DF night. A favorite of Chilango writers, as the people of Mexico’s capital city are known, it’s not uncommon to run into scribes perusing the stacks or imbibing at the bar, such as Francisco Goldman, who mentions the bookstore as a personal favorite in the wonderful memoir, Interior Circuit: A Mexico City Chronicle.

Hidden behind a laundry mat facade, this is a hidden nightclub only the locals know about or can get in easily.  Beautiful interior followed by even more of a beautiful crowd.  Be prepared to dance the night away and see the sun rising as you leave.
