Rosa Negra, Gorka Altamar, and Castillo de Chapultepec: Juan Barbato’s Mexico City

To give you an insider look at Mexico City for your stay during ZONAMACO, we’re talking to those in-the-know. Here, Juan Barbato, The Macallan’s National Brand Ambassador for Mexico, shares his favorite spots to dine, drink, relax, and see art.

WHERE TO EAT & SIP
Rosa Negra is one of the most trendy places right now and is one of the few restaurant/bars that have The Macallan 25 Years Old in Mexico! This place is always packed and is well known as one of the best bars since it’s located in one of the most trendy, high end neighborhoods in Mexico City–Polanco. My favorite restaurant would be Gorka Altamar in Virreyes. It’s definitely one of the best restaurants in the city. It has a Spanish influenced menu with an incredible range of The Macallan offerings.

BEST NEIGHBORHOOD
Polanco. It is the most trendy neighborhood in the city and it is full of high end boutiques, clubs, restaurants and bars. Avenida Masaryk is the most iconic street in Mexico.

DON’T MISS
I consider the Castillo de Chapultepec a must-go. It is a historic spot in the heart of Mexico City.
