Monterrey - Post Report Question and Answers

What are some typical ways to socialize, either with local people or with other expatriates? Are there groups or clubs that you can recommend?

There is a Monterrey International Women's Organization, religious groups, and through kids' schools and activities. - Feb 2021

Internations, international women’s group. Clubs, bars, etc. There’s lots of things to do. - Sep 2018

Restaurants, BBQs, bars; it's basically South Texas, but with violence. - Mar 2014

Plenty to do, although US government personnel are restricted to the neighborhood of San Pedro Garza Garcia between midnight and 6am. However, San Pedro has plenty of restaurants, bars and clubs, especially since the area nightlife has transitioned over here with the increase of violence in other parts of the city. However, it is occasionally frustrating not to be able to attend private parties or events in other parts of the city, as nightlife does not get going here until 11pm. - Oct 2012

Clubs, bars, restaurants, some museums. VIP movies are cheap, so we went to a lot of those. - Oct 2010

Everything is available here, so you are able to have as much of a social life as you want. - Jul 2010

Again, kind of boring for those of us who aren't in college and don't have kids. Most social interactions are small groups at homes or restaurants. There are fun places to go out downtown but transportation can be hard and it is a young crowd. - Jan 2008
