Rosalía was captured in a bar in the CDMX.

It is prevalent for singers or musical groups to celebrate after their shows, and Rosalía was no exception because when she left the stage she changed to go to a bar located in the Condesa neighborhood. According to a video taken and spread by TikTok user @leslietorrestt, the Spanish star drank some mezcals at La Clandestina.

In said audiovisual fragment, the Motomami can be seen wearing a pastel pink blouse and a cap decorated with rhinestones in the middle of a group of people, who, upon recognizing her, did not hesitate for a minute to approach her to ask for a picture. While the singer was willing to mingle with her fans, she also did her best to walk to a van that took her back to the hotel where she was staying.

On the way, she took pictures and was about to take a bouquet of roses in her hands that a young man offered her as a thank-you for her free show. Unfortunately, she could not grab it because she managed to get into the car just then.

The lucky fan shared her unexpected encounter with a caption: Rosalía after a few mezcals. Much love to the Motomami mayor”. But she was not the only one, as another young man in the right place at the right time shared his experience on Twitter: “I greeted Rosalía in the bar next to my house.”

So far, no more videos are circulating on the internet about the singer’s visit to the bar, nor has she made any publications about it on her social networks.
