Right off the Metropolitan G/L stop, Zona Rosa is a great place to meet up with a few friends over tacos, margaritas, and guacamole on its awesome roof. You might encounter a bit of a wait on nice nights (when they open the windows and it becomes an indoor/outdoor situation), but it’s never too hard to get a seat.
