The most famous El Pendulo store is in Polanco and regularly features on lists of the best bookshops in the world. It’s well deserved and we loved visiting that one, but we also grew to love our local El Pendulo store in Condesa. It’s smaller than the Polanco shop but has the same cosy charm and is the ideal place for whiling away hours trying to work while getting distracted by all the people and books. There’s also a Pendulo in Roma, which is equally beautiful – I think it may be my favourite chain of bookshops in the world.

Finally, cocktails will be the protagonist, you will want to ask for them all. An Inclan is a clash of citrus flavors, such as lemon and orange juice with rum, spice syrup and a hint of mint. They serve it in a blue pewter jar with a lot of ice, so the effective liquid will be very small. The atmosphere is still relaxed, with live music at the top and everyone in their roll.
