Rey Pila

Following the breakup of Los Dynamite, Diego Solórzano began Rey Pila as a solo project, releasing his debut album in 2010. After gaining three members, the band moved to New York to start work on their next release, during which they were signed to Julian Casablancas’ label. They subsequently embarked on an international tour to support Albert Hammond Jr., and in 2015 the new wave synth rockers released their sophomore album The Future Sugar.

city guide:
Mexico City, MX
bar
Bósforo
Mezcal bar in the city’s Centro neighborhood, serving up a wide selection of the agave-based spirit. Most are small-batch or limited-edition, meaning you'll taste something you won't find anywhere else (and possibly ever again).
Luis Moya, Centro, 06000 Ciudad de México, D.F., Mexico

shopping
Discos Mono
Record shop for the adventurous listener. Find everything from experimental, prog rock, krautrock and much more. The founders carefully handpick only a couple of copies of each record with a focus on small catalogues and independent labels.
Jalapa 129, Roma Nte., 06700 Ciudad de México, D.F., Mexico
coffee
Panadería Rosetta
This beloved bakery is so popular, Chef Elena Reygadas had to open a second location. Enjoy Mexican staples like pulque bread, guava danishes, chocolate-vanilla conchas and much more.

coffee
La Finca Santa Veracruz
Cozy cafe that sources coffee from small farmers in Mexico. Featuring medium and finely roasted beans paired with a small selection of pastries. Lovely spot for a mid-day snack and a good book.
