Here's where Mexico City’s beautiful people congregate. The third in the chain (there are 1 OAK clubs in New York and Las Vegas), the name stands for "1 Of A Kind." The club owners' goal to bring glamour back to nightlife translates into the club’s décor with gold and black floor tiles and a black marble and crystal bar set off by a deep-colored wood ceiling and walls, with exposed brick tossed in for good measure. It's been the hottest hotspot for Mexico City’s young elite since opening in January 2013. Even Hollywood, er, hotties Wilmer Valderrama and Gerard Butler turned up on opening night. At the tables and counters, ice buckets aglow with the 1 OAK logo are filled with bottles of chilling vodka, champagne, or wine. Resident DJs keep the tunes spinning all night long, while servers make sure your glass is never empty. While 1 OAK opens at 11:30pm, the party really starts around 1 am. It's a good idea to call ahead and see if you need reservations for that evening, or arrive on the early side, prepared to spend some serious money—this place is not for the thrifty.
