The hip and trendy neighbourhood of Palermo, is the best area to stay if you are looking to make the most of Buenos Aires’ nightlife. This neighbourhood is filled with nightclubs, restaurants, bars and pubs, and it’s one of the most famous areas for middle to upper class locals to go out. The neighbourhood is quite big, and it is divided into smaller areas.

Buenos Aires Party Guide

Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina, is also the second most populated city in South America, attracting visitors of all ages from all over the world. As with any huge city, it offers almost anything to cater to all tastes. You can find hundreds of pubs with a great variety of beers, nightclubs with local and international DJs, crazy parties, milongas (tango houses) with the most spectacular performances, or jazz bars with exceptional live music and a magnificent atmosphere.

One thing you should take into account is that Argentinians normally go out for dinner pretty late, so the night starts quite late as well and pubs and nightclubs don’t get busy until around 01:00 or 02:00 am. But don’t worry, the night also goes on till very late, with most places staying open and quite full until 07:00 am. So get ready for some long and crazy nights out!

Basic information about nightlife in Buenos Aires:

Buenos Aires Nightlife Areas

The neighbourhood of Palermo is the epicentre of the nightlife of Buenos Aires, but other neighbourhoods like Recoleta or San Telmo have also quite busy nightlifes and are also worth a visit.

Party spirit of Palermo

Palermo is located in the northeast of Buenos Aires and, although it is mainly known for its parks, shops and cultural offer, it is also the undisputed nightlife epicenter of the Argentinian capital with a lot of pubs, clubs, tango houses and gay bars. The most exclusive and unique bars can also be found in this district.

As we mentioned earlier, the neighbourhood is separated into smaller areas. You want to head to what is called Palermo Viejo, which consists of Palermo Soho and Palermo Hollywood.

Nightlife in Recoleta

The prestigious neighbourhood Recoleta is famous for its fancy and fashionable restaurants, clubs, malls, galleries and boutiques. The atmosphere in the neighbourhood is truly unique, with a European feel, reminding you of Paris or Madrid with its elegant charm and exquisite lifestyle. Many of the city’s most luxurious hotels and residential areas can be found in this neighbourhood. Even though the prices might be much higher in Recoleta, it is worth visiting and tasting its nightlife.

San Telmo and its bohemian party style

San Telmo is the oldest and most bohemian district of Buenos Aires, and it cannot be missed if you are a real party lover. It was established in the 17th century and was a poor area of the city for a long time, until it became one of the centres of Buenos Aires’ party life.

Dress code & age restriction for bars and clubs in Buenos Aires

Due to a laid-back atmosphere and multiculturalism in Buenos Aires, there is no strict dress code for nightclubs or bars in the city. However, if you are a tango dancer and you are going to one of milongas (tango house), then it is recommended to put on a tango style dress, suit and a fedora hat. If you don’t have any - no worries: there are plenty of people in simple t-shirts and jeans even at very fancy tango shows.

Regarding age restrictions, the drinking age in Argentina is 18 years old, so if you look young enough, you might be asked to show your ID.
