Looking for some live music in Mexico City? Try out El Convite. This tiny, modest little restaurant hosts live jazz Thursday-Saturday evenings. It's an intimate spot where you can choose to sit inside or on the patio and still enjoy the lively music.
You won't only enjoy the music at this joint, but also the food. It's Italian cuisine with risotto, pastas & tapas. I had the mussels in a tomato broth which was rich and satisfying. It's on the higher end of the scale in regards to prices, but the portions are generous. They also have an excellent drink selection with a notable beer list.
This is a high energy place bustling with people socializing; it's a busy spot in the evenings when the bands play so be sure to make a reservation. They told us on the phone that there was a 100.00 mxn (thats about 5.75 usd) minimum consumption fee per person, we found out that it's actually a 100.00 a cover charge and it is added on top of your bill at the end of the night, but the cover fee is worth the music.
El Convite is a little off the beaten track, if you take the bus along Division del Norte from Miguel Angel Quevedo, you'll get there pretty quickly. The closest Metro station is Taxqueña, or you can just take a cab/Uber.
Address: Calle Ajusco 79 bis, Colonia Portales, Delegación Benito Juárez Mexico City, Mexico
Overall: A great place to check out if you like live music and are looking for a fun time with good food and a great atmosphere.
