Gimnasio Juan de la Barrera (formally known as Gimnasio Olímpico Juan de la Barrera) is a Mexico City arena used most prominently for basketball. It was constructed for the 1968 Olympics and can hold 5,242 people. AAA has run many of its TV tapings from the Distrito Federal in this venue, and it also has held shows for lower-level groups with high aspirations, such as Robles Promotions and NWA Mexico.

The heyday for Gimnasio Juan de la Barrera as a wrestling venue came in 1993, when over half of AAA's TV tapings that year took place there. In 1994 AAA went back to existing as a pure touring promotion, but they still ran this building several times when they visited Mexico City. AAA made a return to this arena in 2023, after not running there since 2018.
