Guadalajara Nightlife Summary

Guadalajara is a college/tourist town that likes to party, but the city's best nightlife is fairly nonexistent early in the week. You'll likely cram your dancing in and catch live music (eclectically broad) from Wednesday - Saturday. Check Ocio (Friday supplement in the Milenio newspaper or at for listings.

Venues tend to cluster, notably along Avenida Chapultepec, but also in the streets bordering Parque Revolución and Centro Magno. For outlying clubs like Bar Américas, you'll probably need a taxi.

Many of the traditional gay bars/clubs are in the vicinity of Prisciliano S√°nchez/Maestranza streets. (Also see:

An unexpected hodgepodge of little clubs/bars can be found in the 200 block of Pedro Loza.

Also notable around town:

  • a cheap, youngish pool hall (L√≥pez Cotilla 779); the Mexik cantina with wild Aztec murals (west side of Plaza de las Nueve Esquinas)
  • the monk-themed miniclub El Monasterio (Av. Ju√°rez 604-A)
  • the hipster lounge 1er Piso (Pedro Moreno 947); trendy hard-to-find "underground" bar The Rusty Trombone (Lerdo de Tejada 2166
  • the norteano dance saloon El Viejo Oeste (Av. Ju√°rez 414)
  • the arty house party venue Delisse Caf√© (Lerdo de Tejada 2055).
