Buenos Aires Nightlife
Famed for its huge selection of trendy clubs, fashionable music
bars and attractive restaurants, it''s no wonder the city of Buenos
Aires never sleeps. From the dimly lit tango bars and mainstream
hard house dance clubs to the Teatro Colón and smaller independent
theatres, there is something for just about everyone in this
In typical Latin fashion, dinner is very late and usually taken
between 10 and 11pm so clubs only really get going at around 2am.
Recoleta, Palermo, Puerto Madero and Costanera are the trendiest
neighbourhoods for dance clubs and all the hippest locals can be
found sipping on long drinks in the surrounding bars. It is not
uncommon to find residents walking home at sunrise after a big
night out on the town.
Culture vultures will simply adore the arts and culture scene
here and plenty of Broadway-style hits can be found in both English
and Spanish at most of the 30-odd professional and underground
theatres in the San Telmo and Abasto neighbourhoods.
Other than the usual run-of the-mill watering holes, there are
also many bars in Buenos Aires offering shows such as flamenco
dances, readings, tango and folkloric dance shows, and live
acoustic music, providing a twist and bit of entertainment to
accompany your usual evening drinks. The gay scene in Buenos Aires
is thriving and rivals only that of Rio de Janeiro''s in South
America, with San Telmo being the main strip catering to this
market with small gay bars and restaurants.
