For those of us that live on the “other” side of highway, we are thrilled to see new restaurants and bars opening that offer an alternative to Centro
A new option for nightlife can be found at Punto 115 Centro Gastronomico, located on the Arco Vial and Avenida Petempich, on the outside of the Los Olivos neighborhood. It officially opened in December, but four of the eight businesses located there will have their grand opening shortly.
The owners and tenants are hoping to make the location a focal point of the area, as a meeting place for both adults and young people who are looking for a place to relax and have fun. It opens at noon and receives most visitors at night.
It is located two minutes from Cruz Servicios, an area which the government hopes will become a new entertainment and social center in the city.
José Antonio Ceballos Guerrero, manager of La Inombrable Cantina, shared that the residents in the area have reacted very positively to the idea of a culinary center.
¨We offer an excellent environment and the chance to enjoy a good dinner and drink at an affordable price. The concept is something that was missing, to have options for locals that were affordable,” he said.
“On Sundays lots of families and young people are coming, those between 25 and 35”, he added. Fridays and Saturdays are the busiest days. The house specialty is the La Inombrable cocktail, which has mezcal, chile ancho liqueur, passion fruit, and a touch of cinnamon.
Manager of the Drinkería by Henry Miller, Jonathan Rodríguez, explained that the lower floor is a relaxed environment while the upper floor is meant for parties and nightlife.
Sonia Juárez, a client of the locale, celebrated the fact that there is an option for locals. “Quinta Avenida is incredible but very loud, and it is totally saturated by tourists. This is a good option to have”.
Other restaurants that are already in operation at the locale are Don Sirloin and Soiree while Las Helodias and La Piola will open soon. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
