My name is Ricardo Velmor and I’m a 25 y/o visual artist who fucking loves Mexico City. I’m also editor of Anal Magazine, a local gay zine. This city, also known as DF (Distrito Federal), is a very complex metropolis. The variety of cultural and economic backgrounds of its inhabitants and the fast growth of the city created an environment where decadence and opulence live face to face. This guide focuses on the not so touristic side of this amazing, sometimes hard to digest, but never boring Mexico’s capital.

    Happy to report that the Banos Finisterre are open and as fun as ever! For a departure, you can also try the Banos San Juan, close to the market of the same name. Older crowd with great massages.

    I just spent 3 weeks in Mexico City and Ricardo gave some great advice. I can personally recommend the Banos Finisterre. I visited 7 or 8 times during my stay. 100 pesos for entry and 100 pesos for a massage. It was cool hanging out with the local gays in an old school environment. There aren’t many rules in Mexico City, so you can enjoy a beer while you steam and cruise and enjoy the sights.

    Nicho Bears and Bar was one of the best run gay bars that I’ve ever visited. Fantastic bartenders and staff and great DJs on Thursday night.

    El Oasis is a must visit. I’ve never been anywhere like this gay cantina in my life. Cowboys and daddies mix well with twinks and hipsters. Campy drag shows on Saturday nights were a blast.

    Tom’s Leather Bar is worth a visit. I’m not into hairless guys, but the nude dancers on the bar are quite a sight. It’s not really my scene, but it is definitely worth a visit. Good bartenders, DJs, and light show.

    Marrackech Salon is a fun dance bar. If I was 20 years younger, I’d have really loved it. No attitude from the twinks and hipsters that frequent this bar. Don’t miss the downtown bar scene when you are in the DF.

    Mexico City is an amazing place that is filled with contrasts. I loved it.

    I’ll be in Mexico City in a little more than a week. I’m only visiting from Sunday through Thursday morning, and it looks like a lot of bars are closed or low key on those nights. Can you recommend anything for a scruffy, tattooed American guy?

    Es que ya necesita actualizarse, pero yo creo que si integraré esas fiestas en el nuevo. El Sodome se pone bien en fines de semana, sobre todo viernes y sábado por la noche (después de la 1 a.m.) o a veces los domingos después del medio día.

    Hi Ricardo. Excellent information here.
    I’m going to Mexico City on July 4th weekend. I will be staying in Zona Rosa. How safe is it to go to some of there places late night?
    Is La Casita a bathhouse or is it a sex club?

    you’ve mislocated the Banos Finisterre on your map..
    it’s NOT out in that distant location, but just a few blocks from the Zona Rosa it’s on MANUEL Maria Contreras, in Col. San Rafael, which runs calle sullivan

    Hi Ricardo!..nice list, I recently returned from Mexico City…love it, can’t wait to go back…I would just add PK…it was the only afterhours place I found in Zona and El Wawis in Centro Historico… as far as where to go when the night is about to end.

        RICARDO VELMOR  ·  7 years ago

        Hi there,
        I know, i’ve been to both after everything is closed! The thing is they didn’t exist when I made the list. I think it needs a fair update.

    Saludos desde Puebla, buenos tips, algunos no los conocia. El Nichos, lmfao, osos con cara de mataputos bailando al ritmo de Fey. Del Tom’s me gustan los strippers, hueva ir al baño, casi te violan en el trayecto. El Oasis y el Marrakech me gustan (mega kitsch el ultimo). El Internet suena interesante por lo chacalero.

    Mierda, i wish i woulda did my research before i left el defectuoso and had this list! butt i did find a porn theater for fag fun…it’s huge. i’m pretty sure it’s across the street from Plaza Ciudadela. closes at 9pm?

      • Profile picture
        RICARDO VELMOR  ·  8 years ago

        I think you are talking about Cine Ciudadela in Balderas Street. There is a bigger one in downtown near La Merced area, it is a kind of dangerous zone but its like the biggest porn theater i’ve seen in my life, and also there are times when they stop the movie and it turns into a huge dark room. Kind of scary.

      • Profile picture
        CHICHO  ·  8 years ago

        That’s the one! Right in front of a tiangis of foreign/art/cult pirate DVDs…yes! I’ll have to check the Merced one next time. But yeah, they’re always a bit scary, exciting, stinky, sticky, with creaking seats and obscure men. Me fascina…

    Terrible! I lived in México city for years and there are much more nice gay spots than only saunas.. what about Under, Pasaje América, galleries, neighborhoods, etc?

      • Profile picture
        RICARDO VELMOR  ·  8 years ago

        Thanks Paco, there was a huge Corredor Roma Condesa entry but it was cut off during edition. Also, I do not consider Under as a gay spot and Pasaje America is like in its last days. I tried to write about the spots which have lasted and not those that last less than a month, I also tried talk about a less touristic side of Mexico City.
