El Real Under is an alternative bar located just beside Mexico City’s Roma neighborhood, where you can find a mix of underground culture with rock and roll and good vibes.
The place has two music halls and another two for resting and talking. The vibe and the atmosphere is very good. At some point around midnight, it gets really crowded but that’s the best time to be there.
In the living room on the ground floor you can often hear industrial, gothic and rock music. DJ’s there will make you dance to the rhythm of bands like Nitzer Ebb, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Los Ramones, The Cure and many more in that style.
Upstairs, you may find live bands and DJs who play genres like ska, rockabilly, rock, surf, and punk, depending on the event. They announce the bands on their Facebook page. After the heat of the night, you will need a couple of beers that cost about 30 to 80 pesos, depending on the size.
The place opens at 21:00, after 22:00 cover is 50 pesos. If you are near the area, it’s a good spot to have a good time on Fridays and Saturdays. It closes before 05:00, so you will have enough time to dance and enjoy before you get tired, drunk or sleepy. If you feel a bit hungry , they also have their own restaurant open from 14:00 – 22:00 Mon – Thu & 14:00 – 03:00 Fri – Sat.
As part of the underground culture, sometimes they also have expos and workshops that are announced also on their Facebook site.
