Bang Bang, Colonia Roma, México, D.F.
February 2014 – August 2014
During that time we were written up on Good Food in Mexico City as well as other nightlife publications (which now have updated articles due to bang bang's reopening last May (2015) and Rolling Stone. More pictures and news about bang bang can be found on their Facebook page.
I began working at bang bang when they had relocated from Orizaba, north of Parque Río de Janeiro to their expanded location on Alvaro Obregón. I enjoyed my time there immensely learning much from Martín Arvallo and his interpretation of classic cocktails. When bang bang was suspended randomly on the crazy night spring 2014 of 10 bar closures all over Roma and Condesa, I was at a loss indeed and took the summer traveling with Carlos and finishing my last classes for my Ph.D in Switzerland. When I returned, an opportunity with Felina Bar arose and Martín and I had a very sad conversation although he understood.
