There are lots of mariachis. We were lucky enough to get a table at the bar that faces the plaza. Drinks were good. Mariachi was great. A very good time.

Plaza Garibaldi is located in a Mexico City downtown just a few blocks from Palacio de las Bellas Artes. The reality is that the Plaza is nothing special, actually, in my opinion is an ugly place, however, it is a meeting place for Mariachis groups,...More

Every night you can go to Plaza Garibaldi and find mariachi bands that will play for you for a small fee.There are restaurants and bars if you feel like staying longer, at the end of the square there is a huge market hall serving food.
