Buenos Aires Nightlife

Buenos Aires Nightlife


The evening starts late in Buenos Aires and ends early (in the morning). Don't think of hitting the clubs before 2 A.M. and don't expect to get to bed before 6 A.M. You'll need to plan your social life carefully if you've got big meetings early in the day.

Pint After Work

If you've got an early start tomorrow and can't stay awake till the clubs start jumping, head to Titanic (Avenida Santa Fe 2516; +54-11-4822-7530), which opens at 7 P.M., offering light meals and after-work drink specials.

Sitges (Cordoba 4119; +54-11-4861-3763; is a laid-back video bar with shows, lots of really fun '80s music, and a nice mix of gay women and men.

Lounge Chairs

The Axel Hotel boasts two bars: Sky Bar and Cosmo Bar (Venezuela 649; +54-11-4136-9393; Sky Bar offers cheeky cocktails alongside a sultry swimming pool while Cosmo Bar invites you on the scene to be seen.

Bulnes Class (Bulnes 1250; +54-11- 4861-7492; is a cool loungy gay spot perfect for watching some of B.A.'s most handsome residents before heading out for a night of dancing.

Late Night Meetings

Lose the tie and hit the huge three-story Alsina (Alsina 943; +54-11-4331-3231;, one of the city's hottest clubs, full of a new kind of descamisados -- the shirtless hunky gay wonders of Buenos Aires. Gay nights, though, are only Fridays and Sundays, so put it on your calendar.

Amerika (Gascon 1040; +54-11-4865-4416; offers much of the same sexy shirtless fun all weekend within an interesting multilevel space with hidden areas above.

Contramano (Rodriguez Pena 1082; is the city's oldest gay club, opened in the last days of the military regime. It's a more relaxed alternative to the hyperclubs.

There's somewhere to dance every night of the week in Buenos Aires. Check street kiosks for gay and lesbian maps, or pick up a copy of Imperio or Otra Guia at a newsstand. Travel company Pride Travel also puts out a guide called La Ronda.
