Buenos Aires nightlife is vibrant. There are many theatres and concert halls featuring foreign artists. Economic instability has meant a contraction of some of the more extravagant nightclubs for which Buenos Aires was famous, though there are still a large number of smaller intimate boîtes (clubs) and many stage shows. There are casinos throughout Argentina.

Guardia Vieja 3360, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Tucked down a rather uninviting street by the side of the Abasto shopping centre, this is one of Buenos Aires most established alternative bar-cum-theatre-cum-music venues and probably a good place to meet one of the citys many psychoanalysts.
Estados Unidos 299, Buenos Aires, Argentina
One of San Telmos most reasonably priced tango shows.
Rodriguez Peña 1220, Buenos Aires, Argentina
An Irish bar with a porteño touch, this is a good place to meet foreigners - but watch out for the dart board placed perilously close to the toilets.
