Centro Santa Fe is a chaotic shopping center, always full of people and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed here. So, Alboa is a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle. Once inside, you’re greeted by a well-stocked bar and smoking lounge although this is officially a bowling area. So, grab five of your friends and head to the lanes, where all the magic is. It’s almost hard to imagine that a bowling alley could offer three different restaurant options, Cranker, Avira and DAO, without you ever taking your eye off the kingpin.
There’s even a cocktail menu designed by Spanish mixologist, Manuel Vehí. If you’re a gin person, try the cadaqués (gin, grapefruit, lemongrass, rosemary and lemon). Want something sweeter? The anahí is your new go-to, a berry martini with an apple foam. Wash the drinks down with a beef steak from Cranker and soak in the largest video wall in Mexico during your chow break.
After food and bowling, keep it going at Avira; a nightlife hotspot with a live music hall and a mobile terrace where you can sip on mojitos and stare up at the night sky. If you’re still hungry (or even if you’re not) try the peking duck wings here, trust us.
Alboa is the perfect excuse to stay up way past your bedtime.
