New to the Board

Hey all, been hitting up US clubs for a long time and finally discovered TJ about 3 months ago.  Been able to go 5-6 times in the past 3 months due to some well aligned work trips so starting to figure things out down there.  Definitely a different world than anything we have here in the states.   Always looking forward to trips down south of the border and happy to meet up with folks if anyone is ever around when I make it down.

Welcome aboard mate!

Glad to have you here!

You have found a great place to share information about TJ--and especially the Red Light district--known as the Zona Norte (ZN).

Enjoy!

VIVA MEXICO!

Any tips about places to take a girl outside ZN would be great as well.  Been stuck in an El Copeo rut and would love some new places.

Le Conteiner is very popular. Not sure how it compares to El Copeo, but my girl liked it.

Conteiner is much more "clubby" than Copeo.  Copeo is more of a big bar.  I'm thinking most chicas under the age of 30 will definitely like Conteiner.

If you like craft brew, catch an Uber over to Plaza Fiesta - https://www.facebook.com/plazafiestatijuana/

There are great breweries in there plus a few clubs to dance in upstairs.

Well, there's only about 50 places up and down Calle Sexta on a weekend. Surely she'll like one besides Copeo (which does nothing for me, frankly). La Ferreteria for rock en espanol. Shots Factory, or whatever they call it now, for some reggaeton and flaming Moes. Dandy del Sur for old school TJ. And the list goes on. You'll be wasted and passed out on the corner before you visit them all.

Bar Rubiks on Revo and 4th for 80's music and cheap drinks.

Norte Brewing on the 6th floor of the parking structure on 4th next to the Caliente Casino. Great views!

On Friday or Saturday nights, walk up one flight of stairs to the 7th floor America Nova Skybar for a great cover band and dancing to tunes from the 60s and 70s, and you have the same great view as Norte Brewing.

I believe “ Zona Norte” covers much more than just “The Red Light District”. But :dunno:  Zona Roja

 I always get confused regarding the boundaries :bald_head:.

I don't think "Zona Roja" has any determined boundaries as it is not recognized by the city.   I think it is a term that refers to what folks refer to as the area of prostitution.  Now the "area of tolerance" is different and I cannot tell you the boundaries but it is the area where street girls can work.  Since street girl prostitution is illegal it is only tolerated in a designated area.

@dale Ended up trying out a few other clubs and restaurants but certainly always open to more suggestions.  Been to Conteiner, Pulgas, Cheers as well as a few other restaurants.  CF and I split so working up my next fav BG on OTC adventures.

If you haven't experienced movies in TJ, I suggest hitting Plaza Rio mall for the Cinepolis VIP.  Same chain you find in the states but the prices are way cheaper; IIRC, it's about 160p to go and sit in a recliner and have service at your seat.  Many US movies run in TJ with Spanish subtitled - noted by SUB somewhere on the board.   If they've been dubbed into Spanish, you'll see ESP at the bottom.

If you go to the regular Cinepolis, it's only about 80p to see a movie.

And if I may add to what Reuben wrote,  if you become a big Cinepolis fan you can go to Costco and buy either a regular or VIP movie card pass that knocks about half the price off of the walk up movie price.

Speaking of Costco, there's a thread on here about it but if you're buying your Costco membership anywhere but in Mexico you're crazy.  When I renewed mine a few months ago, a year membership is 500p in TJ and the card works on both sides of the border, including at the gas stations.
