Night life in Buenos Aires .............All what you’ve read and heard about BA’s nightlife is true… and as it usually happens, reality is much richer than any tale or story. Argentines are beautiful and sexy as well as sophisticated and elegant. Both men and women fit the stereotype of hot Latinos and delicate Europeans… Many say it’s the blend of Italian and Spanish immigrants, I must say that there’s something in the Good Airs of Buenos Aires that highlights the beauty and sexy within every one of us. If I had to put my finger on the cultural factor to this beauty I would risk it’s the extraordinary result of local populations and immigrants from all Europe… It really doesn’t matter were it came from, the good thing it’s here to stay, party and enjoy life to the most.
Argentines love to go out, enjoy great food and drinks as much as they love to party and dance till dawn. The options throughout the city are as broad as taste options there are.
If it's fun you're looking for, the nightlife in Buenos Aires offers plenty of that. Nightclubs take on a new meaning as people dance and party well into the morning hours.
The nightclub scene is hot in Buenos Aires. You can literally party all night at any of the stupendous clubs. From live electronic music performances at Pacha and Mint to wild and gorgeous fashion shows at Buenos Aires news and Opera Bay. From tropical cumbia music to rock n’ roll, all sorts of people hang out in BA’s nightlife.
For South American style with European flair, Buenos Aires partying evenings start the minute the sun goes down and people leave the office… Thursday to Sunday are the hot evening nights in the city---
People first meet for drinks. Pubs & Lounges in Palermo Hollywood, Soho and Las Canitas are these days’ hot spots. A couple of sexy drinks may be something sweet like red bull and vodka or a precious treat: vodka, passion fruit and mint… or may be if you’re feeling more traditional just a martini or a glass of superb local Malbec red wine.
At about 9-10 PM Argentines, especially Portenos, head to the restaurants and Resto bars for the latest cuisine trend.
BA features a marvelous variety of outstanding restaurants. If visiting, indeed a must is to -at least once- enjoy some of Argentina’s finest grilled meat. Keep an open mind and you’ll enjoy all sort of delicate treats and feasts. For fusion cuisine Palermo is the place, hip and trendy restaurants with great service feature more than interesting options. For the ultimate sophistication and elegance, don’t hesitate go to Buenos Aires Sofitel hotel on Arroyo St or the Alvear Palace bistro. Traditional and perfect to the tiniest detail, these restaurants rarely go wrong.
Let me provide a little insight on the Portenian way of being, we take very good care of our dining experiences and it’s very common that we’re in a restaurant for several hours, enjoying the food and the company. Dinning time can extend until passed midnight…
So the fact that we “hit” the clubs after 1-2 AM shouldn’t be strange. The peak of the clubbing night might be achieved at 4 AM in the morning and the party goes on and on until dawn… Trendy and hip people, Argentines dress accordingly to the latest fashion style in vogue, and the night out is not just about the dance and fun, but a show off window.
Slim and beautiful of exotic features the Argentine woman has a true unique beauty and a sculptural body… There has been quite a fuzz around many of our lovely women… At the Latin MTV awards made several peoples’ jaws drop like in cartoons or the latest Internet revolution around Agustina or “Keyra”s most perfect back side!
Beauty and soul… Argentines have that typical Latino groove! They are always moving and dancing to whatever tune is playing.
After such an amazing evening out, when the sky begins to turn red, orange and deep blue it’s time to rest… not before enjoying a lovely breakfast by the river.
As the sun begins to raise upon the city we all head home for a good (day-night) sleep… None of these party people would hit the streets before noon! That’s why weekends in BA are so quiet until lunch!

Hello Florencia, yes, send me your suggestions on NightLife meantime there is somehwere to go before its to late ..... its all about S*x and Passion in Buenos Aires .....
The story begins with a fact: Palermo's oldest theme hotel-motel is soon to be demolished. Bought by one of the many top notch investors that are frequenting our country due to the excellent real estate opportunities and cultural level, this traditional spot is in its last days, as it waves farewell to its golden years, and thousands of thousands of visitors and regulars.
It's important at this point to highlight the fact that in Argentina, theme hotels-motels or hotels by the hour -regardless the name we use- is a strong cultural tradition for both for lovemaking and casual s*x alike. In our society, where rent is high and relocation for the youth is not so common, these kind of hotels early appeared in our culture as a response to the problem arose in terms of intimacy, s*x and pleasure.
The options range from 5 stars like hotels with all the sophisticated facilities, to kinky ones, to the traditional room rental per the hour. But prices aside, all of them are conceived to trigger passions, fantasies and wild dreams. Mirrored walls and ceilings, functional lighting and music decorate these rooms throughout the country. There are no social restrictions to the use, everyone does it; it's all part of the potential flavour within the encounter.
So, when the Townhouse group bought the property on 2151 Thames st. in the posh Soho neighbourhood, they knew that something stupendous had to be done there before it closed for good. That's how, this creative group came up with the idea of taking advantage of the kitsch and s*xy atmosphere of a long gone passionate scenario thru means of a revolution- like art-show.
The concept is just marvellous and exciting. Holding an art show in this broadly frequented satisfaction hotel is a picture perfect challenge for artists and public alike. Sharing art and s*x, a joy in the observing eye, the artist have dared to captivate the audience in a sophisticated and appealing way, creating a special intimate bond between them at the time the experience has to be lifted to the aesthetic world of pleasure and satisfaction.
The name of the show SOHO Telo Muestra is a word game in Spanish hard to translate without loosing the whit within. Telo is the Argentine nomenclature for theme hotel-motel, actually it's the reverse way of hotel tel-ho, in Spanish the “h” is silent. Muestra is Spanish for show. Indeed Townhouse is not only creative in the concept but also in marketing.
So, from June 23rd to July 16th the show will take place in each and every one of the 29 rooms featuring photos, paintings, sculptures, decoration and many, many surprises.
Every day from 11AM to 8PM the show will be open and free of charge.
Townhouse SOHO organizes this show together with the already famous Arte al Dia publishing company that hosts Gallery Nights, Chandon champagne and La Nacion news paper. They present this unique art show as transitory art, just as superb and glorious and fugacious as s*x. These more than 30 artists will be showcasing their own interpretation of transitory art, s*x, passion, seduction and fantasies:
MILDRED BURTON ALBERTO PASSOLINI
FLORENCIA RODRIGUEZ GUILES
MARCELO DE LA FUENTE
ALEJANDRO MONTES DE OCA
MAURO BERNARDINI MARTIN CHURBA
BEATRIZ SOTO GARCIA
MARGA STEINWASSER CINTHIA DE LEVIE
DAN WAISMAN DEBORA PIERPAOLI
RAFAEL BARSKY PABLO BAGEDELLI
Argentine slang takes upon the game of reversing words and applies this concept to everyday phrasing. Our slang is known as “lunfardo”, a style of language very present in tango lyrics.

Don't know too many but if you search for concerts for Gato Barbieri, Walter Malosetti, Roberto Fats Fernández, Enrique "Mono" Villegas you will be on the right track. Also check Teatro de la Cova and Notorious.

I was trying to find something new to do here in Buenos Aires besides, Drugs, S#$ and Rock&Roll....hahahaha,
No, in all seriousness, I would like to take my girl to a nice concert, jazz show and/ or something other than a bar. Does anyone know of some secret little spots here in the city, that most locals might not know or is there a good place in general to go. Again, I live here and have been almost everywhere I can think of in the past 9 months....just would like something new, which might be hard without leaving the city.
If anyone has any good ideas on finding/ locating ideas, please don't hesitate to post.
Roberto, I know you have something?

For me one of the most unique places to spend a evening and a bit of Tango, is Bar Sur, its on Estados Unidos 299 corner Balcarce, in San Telmo ….. I’ve known it for years, its been there since I was young! And I believe it has had even some very good international comments in some top newspapers of the US, if you haven’t been, go ……..

Thanks Bob, I might give that a try...No offensive, but I was trying to stay away from the Tango scene as my roommates; all of them are bailarines etc...
Sometimes it gets alittle old, but never boring my I add. Thanks for the info.!
