Just spent a month in Buenos Aires ( BA ).
I rented an apartment in the Palermo area with a 25 year old Australian guy. We partied from Wed-Sat every week! Very tiring for this old man.
Anyway, just thought I would give you a list of the clubs we went to and recommendations. Of course people have different tastes.
This is by no means a complete list of options for every night, just represents what i know.


Asia de Cuba (you can go about 10pm and have dinner and then it turns into a club about 2am ) However I dont recommend the food.


Roxy - rock. ok
Club 69 - electronic. weird
Jet Lounge - electronic. super trendy (great chics)
Shamrock - electronic. cool little pub with disoc downstairs
Rumi - electronic. (see Fri) Never been on Wed but supposedly older crowd than Friday


Rumi * - electronic. Very Chic and had the hottest chicks in BA and also the best electronic music i heard.
Tequila - never been but supposed to be cool.
MOD - rock
Sunset - electronic


Pacha - electronic. big rave, lots of drugs.
Crobar - electronic. a bit like Pacha without the drugs
Mint - electronic. Just another club.


If you are still alive then go to a football match!

Hope this helps someone,

dont worry!
BA has everything!
This was just a reflection of my own personal experience.
Perhaps when you get there you can log your suggestions so we can cover the whole spectrum of musical tastes.
Enjoy your trip.

Nightlife in Buenos Aires

All what you’ve read and heard about BA’s nightlife is true…

.......and as it usually happens, reality is much richer than any tale or story. Argentines are beautiful and sexy as well as sophisticated and elegant. Both men and women fit the stereotype of hot Latinos and delicate Europeans… Many say it’s the blend of Italian and Spanish immigrants, I must say that there’s something in the Good Airs of Buenos Aires that highlights the beauty and sexy within every one of us.

If I had to put my finger on the cultural factor to this beauty I would risk it’s the extraordinary result of local populations and immigrants from all Europe… It really doesn’t matter were it came from, the good thing it’s here to stay, party and enjoy life to the most.

Argentines love to go out, enjoy great food and drinks as much as they love to party and dance till dawn. The options throughout the city are as broad as taste options there are.

If it's fun you're looking for, the nightlife in Buenos Aires offers plenty of that. Nightclubs take on a new meaning as people dance and party well into the morning hours.
The nightclub scene is hot in Buenos Aires. You can literally party all night at any of the stupendous clubs. From live electronic music performances at Pacha and Mint to wild and gorgeous fashion shows at Buenos Aires news and Opera Bay. From tropical cumbia music to rock n’ roll, all sorts of people hang out in BA’s nightlife.

For South American style with European flair, Buenos Aires partying evenings start the minute the sun goes down and people leave the office… Thursday to Sunday are the hot evening nights in the city---

People first meet for drinks. Pubs & Lounges in Palermo Hollywood, Soho and Las Canitas are these days’ hot spots. A couple of sexy drinks may be something sweet like red bull and vodka or a precious treat: vodka, passion fruit and mint… or may be if you’re feeling more traditional just a martini or a glass of superb local Malbec red wine.

At about 9-10 PM Argentines, especially Portenos, head to the restaurants and Resto bars for the latest cuisine trend.
BA features a marvelous variety of outstanding restaurants. If visiting, indeed a must is to -at least once- enjoy some of Argentina’s finest grilled meat. Keep an open mind and you’ll enjoy all sort of delicate treats and feasts. For fusion cuisine Palermo is the place, hip and trendy restaurants with great service feature more than interesting options. For the ultimate sophistication and elegance, don’t hesitate go to Buenos Aires Sofitel hotel on Arroyo St or the Alvear Palace bistro. Traditional and perfect to the tiniest detail, these restaurants rarely go wrong.

Let me provide a little insight on the Portenian way of being, we take very good care of our dining experiences and it’s very common that we’re in a restaurant for several hours, enjoying the food and the company. Dinning time can extend until passed midnight…

So the fact that we “hit” the clubs after 1-2 AM shouldn’t be strange. The peak of the clubbing night might be achieved at 4 AM in the morning and the party goes on and on until dawn… Trendy and hip people, Argentines dress accordingly to the latest fashion style in vogue, and the night out is not just about the dance and fun, but a show off window.

Slim and beautiful of exotic features the Argentine woman has a true unique beauty and a sculptural body… There has been quite a fuzz around many of our lovely women… At the Latin MTV awards made several peoples’ jaws drop like in cartoons or the latest Internet revolution around Agustina or “Keyra”s most perfect back side!
Beauty and soul… Argentines have that typical Latino groove! They are always moving and dancing to whatever tune is playing.

After such an amazing evening out, when the sky begins to turn red, orange and deep blue it’s time to rest… not before enjoying a lovely breakfast by the river.
As the sun begins to raise upon the city we all head home for a good (day-night) sleep… None of these party people would hit the streets before noon! That’s why weekends in BA are so quiet until lunch!

there's a really relaxed reggae place on the corner of Indipendencia and Perú. Worth checking out; last year they used to open on wednesday and saturday. Good place to find the left-wing alternative youth of Buenos Aires (including most university students).

Thanks Bentivogli!!! Raggae... Yo Mun! Wa gwarn
hmmm that's more up my street! bring it on!!
will def check it out when we get there,I know my boyfriend being west Indian would defo welcome some raggae music after all the salsa and cheesy tunes he's had to put up with in SA in the past 3 months...that's his only complaint of a wonderful trip so far, but then he's big into his music (way more than I am) so I suppose he misses it a lot!

as got Bob's post..well thank you for giving us such a refined introduction to BA, I had no doubts it was sexy and elegant as well as the people ( I'm Italian, kinda used to that!) cool seems like slowly we are getting some ideas, no doubts night life is great in BA still keep posting names and locations (hip Hop R&B clubs I cant even deal with raggaton if need be)

Peace out Mx;)

All sounds very good.

I'm arriving in BA on friday, just packing now and was there usually a strict dress code for clubs in BA? I'm gonna be backpacking so don't really wanna take anything too smart, and certainly not smart shoes. Will this be a problem??
