Holy terrace! There’s a new player on the scene at our beloved Historic Dowtown.
Santo Domingo, a boutique hotel with landscape-themed architecture is the ideal way to partake in the sun-soaked fun. The urban design respects the colonial construction and adds just a pinch of modernity.
The five-star hotel, with a 700 dollar per night master suite, is definitively elegant and you’re surely to be taken aback by its beautifully-lit open spaces both during the day and at night. Head up to the rooftop terrace and you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views of the Republica de Cuba sector of the Historic City Center. It’s truly an ideal place to watch the sunset, it avoids being ostentatious while remaining functional and simple.
The food and drinks are not as pricy as the room rates would suggest and the rooftop bar menu is traditional yet, daring enough for those wanting to go out on a limb. For example, the Sopa Azteca, escamoles (ant eggs), Negroni and Cosmo are all worth a try. Then, there is the sweet huauzontles salad with beets and macadamias, which we recommend pairing the clover club, a gin-based cocktail with lemon, raspberry and egg whites. There’s also a tasty non-alcoholic menu; our favorite was the 12 campanas, made with green grapes. Perfect for ringing in the new year, Mexico-style… but, we’ll make sure to order a glass of champagne with it, too.
