Buenos Aires' 10 Best Bars and Clubs for Late Night Fun

If you’re ready to party all night long, Buenos Aires will not disappoint. The Argentine capital is a vivacious city filled with dance clubs, bars and endless opportunities to drink, dance and mingle till dawn.

Nightclubs (called boliches) in Buenos Aires often don’t get pumping until 2 or 3 am, with the latest clubs staying open until 7 am. Hours at tango clubs (milongas) vary wildly, but many don’t get packed until 1 am, with the latest ones staying open until 5 am. Bars tend to fill up with the after-dinner crowd around midnight; some close relatively early at 3 am, but others wouldn’t think of it till last call at 5 am or so.  

Dance your heart out at cool Buenos Aires institutions like Niceto Club and Alsina, or sip some made-in-Argentina expertise at Milion and 878, but pace yourself to keep up with the portenos. Locals love to drink, but you’ll find them to be responsible drinkers. If you need to keep up your strength, try a slice of pizza from one of the 24/7 places.
