The end of the year is near, and Mexico City is getting ready to welcome the New Year with a mix of tradition, culture and partying. If you’re looking for the perfect place to say goodbye to the year and welcome 2024, we’ve prepared a list of the most exciting places in CDMX to celebrate in style.


Zocalo and Historic Center: Fiesta Combined with Tradition
We can’t talk about celebrations in CDMX without mentioning the historic center. Here, of course, you will find good options for dining and continuing the party in the great offer of restaurants, bars, mezcalerias and terraces with incredible views.

But on top of all that, the Zocalo, which is the heart of downtown, dresses up to welcome the New Year. Here, you can enjoy a show of lights, live music and fireworks. Don’t miss it!

Condesa and Roma: Chic and Alternative Party
If you are looking for a stylish celebration, the Condesa and Roma neighborhoods are the place to go. If, at any time of the year, these areas are known for their restaurants and bars with innovative and alternative proposals, for New Year’s Eve, they are an excellent option for a memorable dinner and party.

We recommend going to dinner at a restaurant and then bar hopping among the many options you will find. The Roma and Condesa neighborhoods are within walking distance of each other, so you can make a bar-hopping tour between the two neighborhoods without any problem.

Polanco: Gala Dinner and Elegant Celebration
To celebrate the New Year, do you prefer something more distinguished? Then, definitely go to Polanco. This area is home to some of the city’s most elegant and exclusive restaurants, so you can have a very sophisticated New Year’s Eve celebration.

Although Polanco is known for its exclusive offer, don’t worry. If you want to party hard until the wee hours of the morning, you’ll find it here too, as many bars and nightclubs in the area have extended hours.

Xochimilco: New Year’s Eve on The Trajineras
If you want a more relaxed celebration, different and in contact with nature, go to Xochimilco!

Xochimilco, along with the city’s historic center, was designated Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, so it is a highly recommended visit if you are in CDMX. Closing the year by taking a tour through the canals of Xochimilco aboard the colorful and iconic trajineras, surrounded by music, food and nature, will be a great experience.


As you can see, Mexico City has something for everyone this New Year, so while you’re here, you’re sure to have a fantastic time and start 2024 with the best energy!

At Hostel Barrio, we look forward to offering you the coolest accommodation in the heart of the historic center of CDMX. We promise you a few days full of fun, adventures and new friends.

Merry Christmas and Happy 2024!
