Bite-sized travel chats with a few of our favorites.
Share something that inspired you during your recent Sonder stay?
Farrah Fawx: Staying at Sonder felt like home away from home. Almost like my own little apartment with everything I needed. I didn’t feel like I was visiting at all. I also loved the central location, it allowed me to walk to so many new shops, cafes, and restaurants. I even walked home one night from a party in Roma Norte.
A ritual that you practice when traveling to nurture your creativity?
Farrah Fawx: I’m inspired by people, whether that’s through conversation or people watching. So one tradition I have when traveling somewhere new is I always have a coffee or share a meal with a stranger. It could be someone I had a brief conversation with prior or someone already in the restaurant.They always end up teaching me so much about the city and where to go and what things to try.
Recommend a fave arts / creative hub during your recent stay in Mexico City?
Farrah Fawx: My favorite thing I discovered about Mexico City during my visit had to be it’s underground DJ/music scene. There is a club – Antro Juan that is in Roma Norte and walking distance from Sonder that I went to and heard different styles of music and
they had locals artists perform. Another night I went to a warehouse party.

Sonder Sounds in Mexico City feat. Farrah Fawx
Farrah Fawx made a memorable playlist inspired by her stay at Sonder Cielo.
Farrah Fawx: This playlist is a collection of songs that really define my stay and first time visiting Mexico City. Songs I heard in passing that I instantly fell in love with, songs attached to new memories, as well as songs that I already loved. “Andromeda” by Ethel was on repeat while I visited Soumaya Museum. I walked back to Sonder Cielo after dinner one night with new and old friends and heard a car drive by playing “Culisuelta”. I watched an old couple dance while “Cumbia En El Monte” played on the jukebox in a bar in Central one night after a party.
