Roma Norte and Roma Sur are currently the hipster neighborhoods in CDMX.
About the area..
La Roma, is definately one of the coolest neigborhoods in Mexico City. When the colonial center became overpopulated, the wealthy residents of Mexico City moved to the west. Roma was constructed mainly between the end of the 1800s and during the early part of the 20th century.
The majority of the aristocracy used to live in Roma and it had a European ambiance (mostly French), which you can still see today. It is easy to spend a couple days just wandering around the neighborhood, enjoying the beautiful colonial architecture which includes Art Deco, Art Nouveau, and modernism because in the last couple of years a lot of contemporary builsdings fill in the gaps.
Nowadays Roma Norte is a cool, safe neighborhood with countless café's, restaurants offering every type of cuisine you can imagine, bars, parks, shops and markets. You will find anything you want in this pleasant neighborhood. Roma lies right next to the Condesa neighborhood which is very similar and together they make a huge area for you to enjoy.
Roma Norte has some very green streets with lot's of beautiful trees and many people go here to get the feeling of some nice fresh air which is needed after being between so much traffic every day. The neighborhood is easy to get to because it is well connected with public transportation like the metro and the Metrobus.
