This romantically dilapidated colonia, once home to movie stars and Mexico’s elite, was hit hard by the 1985 earthquake and is just now undergoing a hipster renaissance. In addition to the many small boutiques and trendy cafes that have taken over historic buildings, the area is also the center of the city’s gay scene (Zona Rosa, or the red-light district, is littered with sex shops and bustling bars), and Little Korea is where most of the city’s best Asian food can be found.
