Buenos Aires is famous for its phenomenal nightlife.

Nighthawks and revellers, welcome to your spiritual home.

Drinking and dancing is a huge part of porteño culture; bars come alive from 10pm on most nights, and clubs (‘boliches’) get going at around 2am. If you want to effortlessly blend in with porteños, be sure to try Fernet, a bitter aromatic spirit often mixed with coke.

Most of BA's big clubs are located along the Costanera (riverside) and in the Palermo Soho and Hollywood neighbourhoods, and they play anything from electro beats and old-school hip hop, to house and drum ‘n´ bass.
