Pre-New Year Contramar Schedule / New Year's Eve

  • 2

We will be in Mexico City for the last week of December. In past years, we were (quite!) disappointed to find Contramar closed. I cannot find a current Contramar calendar. Please help.

Additionally, for the past few years, we have had trouble sorting a good place to celebrate NYE. Most of the options appear to be super-expensive hotel type parties. By way of example, the party at the Four Seasons was several hundred dollars per person. Any suggestions for a nice, affordable NYE celebration?

  1. I just called Contramar for you. They will be closed from December 24 through January 3rd. This is, unfortunately, the custom for many, many restaurants in the DF.

    New Year's Eve tends to be an expensive, blow-out event at Mexico's hotel-type and other restaurants that stay open. The cost usually includes dinner, a glass or two of bubbly, maybe an entertainer or a band with dancing, the traditional 12 grapes at midnight, etc. I remember making several calls last year for other CH people and failed to turn up much of anything that was inexpensive but pleasant. Tomorrow I will make some calls and post back, if I have time.
