Plaza Fiesta

Top choice craft beer in Tijuana

Step into what seems like an aging shopping mall, to some gritty alleyways that, behold, house the heart of Tijuana's craft-beer scene as well as a slew of mezcal and sports bars and hopping clubs. Our favorite beers come from tiny yet lauded Insurgente Tap Room, but edgy Border Psycho and fun Mamut are also worth a stop.

Evenings are mellow at the craft-beer shops, but get much, much crazier as the night rolls on at the clubs that line the back of the complex. There's no for-tourist stuff here, just full-on Mexican partying.
