Merida Nightlife | Things to do After Dark in Merida
Walking around the historic center of Merida after dark is a delight because you get to admire the beautifully lit buildings. From Thursday to Sunday, 60th Street is closed to traffic so that restaurants, bars, and cafes can offer outdoor seating. It’s a pleasure to stroll through the streets and browse the crafts sold by local street vendors, while deciding on the perfect place to enjoy dinner or drinks.
It’s a good idea to check out the schedule of the Olimpo Cultural Center and the theaters in the city. Another option is attending one of the cultural events in the parks, as you’re sure to find a variety of interesting activities that you can enjoy. Listening to the sounds of Yucatecan trova in Santa Lucia Park is just one example of the unique experiences that await you when you explore the oldest streets in Merida.
Paseo de Montejo and Prolongacion Montejo
Admiring the buildings with French style architecture is one experience that you don’t want to miss during your vacation in Merida. The evenings are a great time to get out and explore, when the heat is less intense. You’re sure to find a bohemian restaurant or bar where you can enjoy regional, Mexican, and international cuisine, accompanied by the liquor of your choice.
Many of the popular nightspots are located along the Prolongacion Montejo, an extension of this beautiful avenue that runs north from downtown Merida. This is where you’ll find local and chain restaurants, laid-back bars, and popular nightclubs that stay open until the early morning hours. Take note of the dress code, as Yucatecans prefer a casual yet elegant style that takes into account the hot climate of the region.
This area is newly established and very popular among local residents. It features a shopping center full of restaurants serving a variety of cuisine, as well as a large number of bars and nightclubs with different music, like salsa, new age, oldies, and of course, all the latest hits. The best thing about this place is that you can walk from club to club, as they are all concentrated in the same area.
