Avenida Revolución’s Revolution

Perhaps no street in Tijuana has been better known to American tourists over the past half century than Avenida Revolución.  Whether it was shopping for clothing, jewelry or leather goods, being photographed with the “zebra-striped” burro, enjoying some tasty comida Mexicana, or taking in some rowdy bar action, Revolución was the place to go. That’s all changed during the past decade.  

With the dwindling numbers of Americans, many afraid to cross the border, most of the small shops and many of the restaurants catering to tourists have closed their doors. But Revolución has been undergoing its own revolution. A new Avenida Revolucion is evolving filled with new art galleries, bookstores, restaurants, cafes and bars. And not catering to the American tourists, but to Tijuana’s residents…the young and the hip as well as the older and more affluent.  Three new arts passages have opened in the past few years and festivals to attract the locals are well attended.  Even Caesar’s Restaurant (home of the famous salad), taken over by Tijuana’s Plascencia family (owners of several of Tijuana’s top restaurants) has re-emerged as an “in” dining venue. So the next time you’re in Tijuana, check out the revolution on Revolución.
