Presidente Masarik Avenue
Polanco / Images of Polanco / Other attractions

Neighborhood: Polanco
Metro: Polanco. Auditorio.


During the last decade, this avenue has become the shopping street par excellence in Mexico City due to its wide range of shops and boutiques of the most prestigious fashion brands in the world.

The heart of this avenue is located where Arquímedes Street and Moliere Avenue meet. It’s this sector of the street in which we can find shops like Tiffany’s, Louis Vuitton and Chanel, among others. In this area, in the corner of Mazaryk and Oscar Wild, we can find the elegant ‘Polanco Passage’, a small commercial road which dates back to the 1940’s and contains several exclusive shops specialized in design, jewelry and furniture. On the outsides of this ‘passage’, on Presidente Mazaryk Avenue, we can find several terraced restaurants which are frequented by artists and the most renowned people of Mexico’s “it” crowd.

A few blocks to the east of this area, in Mazaryk and Lamartine, we can find the Habita, a modern hotel-boutique that has been internationally recognized by its forward architecture and that was designed by Enrique Norten, one of the most prestigious Mexican architects today. The most interesting space in this hotel is its roof garden, which has a bar and a pool, and in which the city’s most ‘chic’ parties take place.

We recommend that you visit this avenue preferably on Thursday and Friday afternoons, as it is on these days when the place becomes more dynamic and effervescent.
