A short walk from the Centro Histórico. It is more fun in a Felipe or joining a group, but a great time listening to the music. Bring a light jacket. Mexico City is chilly on... read more

The show is good but they bring you in with lies. They told us no cover charge and no minimum drinking fee. Once we asked for the bill they charged us $200 pesos for the "show fee". Please stay away from this place!

At first, this seems to be a nice place. Guys on the street attracting the tourists claiming the atmosphere is good for families and the show is free of charge. You get in, indeed there's a nice show going on and the music is good. The waiters are polite, bartender as well... You order your food and your drinks... they... More

A short walk from the Centro Histórico. It is more fun in a Felipe or joining a group, but a great time listening to the music. Bring a light jacket. Mexico City is chilly on summer evenings.

After reading all the reviews and the references to crime in this area, we decided to go. We used Uber to take our group of three and we enjoyed a nice evening with drinks and dinner in the well-lit plaza. The mariachi's are the main attraction and they were there. All shapes, sizes and colors! They recognize tourists and do... More

Nice place to walk and take some streetfood, the plaza it's a meeting point of the famous Mariachis. All with their costumes, its pretty beautiful to hear and see all then together. Sometimes they sing together in one voice. Incredible. Not to nice in the winter. (nov - jan).

Thousands of beautifully decorated and talented musicians, playing mariachi music and waiting to be hired for parties or even songs on the spot. Cigars, tequila and mariachis = a perfect night in Mexico City!

It is a must visit if you are visiting Mexico City for few days. Excellent Mexican food, Beer and cultural program. Recommend to visit in the evening for dinner.

In the past this was one place that it was cool to visit, not anymore. You won't feel safe there. This place is packed with thieves that will try to steal your money and mariachi bands that will try to sing you a song. Inside the restaurants and the bars, the waiters are very skillful in the art of stealing... More

Garibaldi is one of those places that's cool to see and say you've been to but it's also not as nice and glorious as it once was. In fact, it's lost a lot of it's charm and luster over the years. Sure, there's good music, great Mariachis, and amazing food. But it can also be shady, dangerous, and you may... More
