    Café Iguana

    The epicenter of alternative Monterrey, where the pierced, multi-tattooed, punk-loving tribe gathers en masse, both inside and on the street out front. Cover charge only for live bands.

    Museo Estatal de Culturas Populares

    Housed in a historic mansion, this Barrio Antiguo art center is dedicated to the arts that originate in the state of Nuevo Leon. The center regularly hosts exhibits but, more popular, are the live performances – music, dance, even lucha libre (wrestling). Be sure to peek into the chapel, with its impressive floor to ceiling murals. There's also a good bookstore on-site with a pod-like reading room for perusing possible purchases.

    Casa De La Cultura De Nuevo León

    The lovely 1891 Gulf Line railroad station now houses a stage that regularly hosts dance, theater and independent films, including live music every Wednesday at 7pm. The building also houses twin museums. The biggest, appropriately enough, is a so-so train museum while the small art gallery has temporary exhibits that are usually good enough to warrant a stop.

    Casa de los Títeres

    This petite Spanish-language puppet theater is a delight for younger crowds, with lively Sunday shows (from 5pm) as well as periodic Friday- and Saturday-night productions aimed at older audiences. There's also a tiny museum you can tour before catching the show.
