Entertainment in Buenos Aires, Argentina

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.

Entertainments in Buenos Aires

  • Bunker

    Anchorena 1170., Buenos Aires, Argentina

    A well-established gay club in the heart of well-heeled Barrio Norte, somewhat similar to Londons Heaven.

  • Centro Cultural Ricardo Rojas

    Corrientes 2038, Buenos Aires, Argentina

    Affiliated to the University of Buenos Aires, this friendly cultural centre offers free events including live music (rock, funk and DJs).

    Live music including rock, jazz and tango, with salsa dancing on Saturday nights.

  • Babilonia

    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.

  • Bar Sur

    Estados Unidos 299, Buenos Aires, Argentina

    One of San Telmos most reasonably priced tango shows.

  • Shamrock

    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.
