A culture space at Colonia Roma.
Fodor's Review: Recently, bookstores and cafés have helped transform this old neighborhood into the capital's full-blown arts district. The Galería OMR (Plaza Río de Janeiro 54, Col. Roma. www.galeriaomr.com. ) is tucked away in a typical Colonia Roma house, with an early-20th-century stone facade and quirkily lopsided exhibition rooms. This active gallery has a strong presence in international art fairs and art magazines. It's open weekdays 10-3 and 4-7 and Saturday 10-2. A short walk from OMR, Galería Nina Menocal (Zacatecas 93, at Cordoba, Col. Roma. www.ninamenocal.com. ) specializes in work by Cuban artists. The gallery is open weekdays 10-7 and Saturday 10-2, but the small staff is not always particularly welcoming to tourists who just want to take a look around. The Casa Lamm Cultural Center (Av. Alvaro Obregón 99, at Orizaba, Col. Roma. www.casalamm.com.mx.), a small mansion and national monument, nurtures artists and welcomes browsers with three exhibition spaces, a bookstore, a wide range of courses, and a superb café and a great restaurant that offers delicious international cuisine. Galería Pecanins (Av. Durango 186 at Plaza Cibeles, Col. Roma.) may be small, but it's a significant local presence. It's open weekdays 11-2 and 4-7.
