Buenos Aires Club Life


Life after dark

If you're a fan of dancing the night away, then look no further than the Buenos Aires boliche (club). As with eating and drinking, dancing starts late in the city. If you arrive at a club at 1 a.m. you may be the only one there. Places tend to fill up at about 3 a.m., and rarely close before 6 a.m. (take a nap in the evening to survive!). Many of the clubs will have a cover charge, usually about $20 pesos, though if you're on a budget, free entry is sometimes offered before 2a.m. Check the club's website for special promotions and keep your entrance ticket; some places offer a free drink if you present it at the bar.

In Palermo, the most popular clubs – especially on Friday and Saturday nights - are Crobar, Jet and Pacha; join hundreds of porteños dancing to thumping electronic beats then hit Plaza Serrano for breakfast. Two great gay mega-clubs, (which are also hetero-friendly) are Amerika and Glam, the former pulls thousands to its two dance floors even on a Sunday night. During the week, Hype, the party organized at club Kika, is perfect for hip hop/drum n' bass fans, while Thursday night is Club 69 at Niceto, with live performances in one room and an open bar in the other.

The other part of town with a host of clubs to chose from is Puerto Madero and Microcentro, where the after-office crowd come early and stay late. Check out Asia de Cuba – an upscale venue most popular on Wednesday nights, where sushi, great cocktails and a glamorous crowd make for a difficult Thursday morning! A short taxi ride away is Bahrein, formerly a huge bank, the original vaults and ornate chandeliers add a touch of class to a pounding beat at this multi-level club.
