El Balcón del Zócalo
The restaurant and bar, called El Balcon del Zocalo, on the roof top of the Holiday Inn located along the Zocalo, or central square, of Mexico City
is worth the inflated prices in order to get a bird's eye view of Mexico's largest and most important square. I recommend coming for drinks and snapping some photographs from the exceptional vantage point this restaurant and bar provides. I would skip the food here and go find some street food that is much more authentic and easy on the wallet. In addition to the rooftop bar, there is an amazing shop sharing the same building, called Arte Mexicano para el Mundo, which sells Mexican folk art from all over Mexico. The prices for the art are more expensive than they would be locally, but the quality is excellent and the variety and regions represented make it worthwhile just for a look around. It's almost like a museum.
