The Best Themed Restaurants in Mexico City
Papa Guapa, going back to the 50’s
In reality the Papa Guapa venues are decorated to throw you back in between the 50′, and 60’s. If you like everything about these decades then you should definitely visit this restaurant.

Cereal Station, a Cereal Bar
They don’t consider themselves a coffee shop or themed restaurant. They label themselves as a Cereal Bar.
Even though they call themselves a bar, what you will find here is completely oposite to anything alcohol related, which we truly enjoyed.
Cereal Station is the perfect place for those who love the morning food. Moreover, the best part about the place is that you can try cereals from all over the world, those that you won’t find anywhere else in the country.

Restaurant Be Bops Diner
If the idea of traveling back to the 50’s and 60’s caught your attention, then you should consider this restaurant as well. Probably the funnest one in the whole city.
What makes it special is the Rock & Roll and Live music. Live music only happens some Fridays and Saturdays.
It’s not just about the food for them, but the dancing! They teach dance lessons on Tuesdays and Sundays and believe me when I tell you people take it serious when throwing it back.
As far as food, you will find the classics: burgers, milkshakes, cheese sticks, and wings.
