WHERE TO GO OUT IN BUENOS AIRES ON YOUR ULTIMATE FOOTBALL TRIP?
Buenos Aires is famous for many things, hence its global attraction for millions of people each year. Whether it be gastronomical, the arts or that age-old religion, football there is something here for all tastes. Different people will argue different sides of the question what truly makes this city so unique?
Now, whilst travelers alike will never agree on an answer to such a philosophical question, one thing everyone can agree on is that Buenos Aires is home to the 24-hour party people. With everything ranging from the blues to hip hip to reggae and then back to some classic funk and soul, the city’s seemingly endless myriad of clubs has it all. There are places for all styles in Buenos Aires for every traveler.
Two general rules of thumb, firstly do your research before in order to avoid tickets running out or full prices and secondly, don’t bother turning up before 1 AM, you will be alone in the nightclub. It would of course be impossible to list all the fantastic opportunities that Buenos Aires nightlife has on offer, so instead, we have here given you our top electronic music venues (House, Dub Step, Techno, Reggaeton all included). Enjoy.
Johnny Be Good
Before you prepare yourselves for an epic night in Buenos Aires and enter the clubs after 1 AM, make sure you head over to Johnny be Good at Puerto Madeiro in Buenos Aires. The main reason? Chill out with your friends from 6pm – 9pm for the happy hour at this club. All sorts of drinks (beers, cocktails and other drinks) are 2 for 1 during these times and you’ll have an amazing time at this club.
If what you seek is your traditional alcohol-fuelled club night, packed with locals, expats and students than you can shake a stick at, then Kika could be just the perfect place for you. This club is for a lot of our trips the main headquarters for our travelers, and we understand why. Situated right in the heart of Palermo this much loved boliche will provide you with a wide variety of House, Dub Step, Reggaeton and Hip Hop tunes as well as a smattering of all the classics. Best of all, it’s open almost every night of the week, that’s right you can rub sweaty shoulders with locals Tuesday right through to Sunday after your football match.
For those looking for a break from the standard club scene and omnipresent reggaeton then perhaps a trip to the widely acclaimed Crobar is in order. Set beneath a rail bridge in the city’s Palermo district, the club is more akin to a venue from Berlin than Latin America. Once down the rabbit hole and past the security one will find themselves confronted with the expansive warehouse like interior. With an impressive sound system, light selection and alcove like bars packed with late night revellers you can enjoy some of South America and the world’s most astute techno DJ’s. An absolute must for any fan of the genre. Expect big names and equally large entrance costs.
Niceto Club (Club 69)
Undoubtedly one of the city’s most eclectic night clubs. The venue attends to a wide range of musical tastes, ranging from Indie Rock to House and Techno. Head down to Niceto on a Thursday night to experience the infamous Club 69. Strippers, transvestites, live DJs and a decent helping of cabaret all help contribute to a rather unique and debauched evening, which will keep you go right into the early hours of the morning. With a whole host of talented local DJ’s playing in a venue which won’t break the bank account. A must see for all those wishing to truly sample Buenos Aires’ diverse night life.
