Sunday evenings are notorious for being a tricky time to find great food spots in Mexico City. Most restaurants and food businesses tend to shut their doors early, leaving visitors and locals a bit lost and disappointed.
It’s easy to understand why this happens, in Mexico City many people prefer to stay at home on Sunday evenings, spending time with family or winding down after a busy weekend and getting ready for Monday. In general, there’s less demand for dining out than on other days of the week.
However, this doesn’t mean that you have to settle for mediocre food just because it’s Sunday evening! There are still plenty of options if you know where to look.
Whether you’re craving something traditional Mexican cuisine or international fare, there are options available throughout the city. So don’t let the limitations discourage you from having an amazing meal.
The list is divided in 3 sections:
Restaurants, food joints & bars.
A few parties as a bonus.

One of the places I’ve visited the most since it opened its doors. Totally worth the wait if there happens to be any. The daiquiris are a must, their Thai street food is mind blowing and it¡s all topped off by their incredibly good vinyl music selection.
Remember this is a reservation-only restaurant so plan your visit ahead of time. Ana and Carlos will receive you in their cozy rooftop with an ever-changing menu, natural wine selection and artisanal mezcales.
No need to pay in advance or book a tour. Show up, walk directly to the ticket office and enjoy the show. For better results: show up after a few drinks and stay until the last fight as that is the best one!
