The Palace of Fine Arts cultural center was designed by the Italian architect Adamo Boari at the turn of the 20th century but wasn't inaugurated until 1934. It contains 17 murals painted between 1928 and 1963 by Mexican artists including Diego Rivera and features a folding stained-glass curtain in its main performance hall. Designed by Dr. Atl (Gerarado Munillo), the curtain portrays landscapes from the Valley of Mexico and was constructed by Tiffany. The center is the permanent home of the Ballet Folklorico de Mexico. The Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional (National Symphony Orchestra) also performs there regularly.

El 69

There's nothing fancy, and the beers are cheap at the smallish El 69 where the pop playlist gets people on the floor. No cover. Cash only.
