When the PERRA bar closed at the end of 2016, it temporarily moved to a room in the Teatro Garibaldi. After a few events, problems arose with the organizers and they decided to part ways. This is how Divina was born.

They share an entrance with Teatro Garibaldi, although Divina has a much larger space with two stages for dancers or brave souls who wish to moonlight as such. In the main bar downstairs, they keep it simple: vodka, brandy and beer. Check out their Facebook page for drink specials, which range from 15 MXN longnecks to 3-mixers-for-100 MXN.

The music ranges from electropop to the most intense reggeaton and the versatility is what makes it fun. Even though sometimes you’ll dance to a song you don’t even like.

Like its predecessor, PERRA, Divina offers weekly themed-parties like, Chinese New Year Day or Valentine's Day, so that each week is a little different.

We really liked the resident drag queen, Paris Bang Bang. She stakes her territory by belting out original songs or channeling Britney herself.

If you’re a Polanco-club-lover, Divina is probably not for you. But, if you want to cut loose and dance without inhibitions then, by all means… come on in.
