If you want to wake up the party animal in you, Buenos Aires is the perfect city to do so! When you visit, sleeping will be at the bottom of your priorities. It’s a city where people go out later than other cities in the world, and stay out later. Part of its charm is that it has nightlife options for everyday of the week. Doesn’t matter if it’s Sunday or Monday, you can still party like it’s the weekend. And that’s not all! Being such a big city, it offers different options for different tastes. If you prefer bar hopping, dancing to latin music or electronics, or if you want to see a show or play some ping pong, you can do it all! Buenos Aires has what everyone is looking for.

1. Monday - Start the week the best way possible

Posted by La Bomba de Tiempo on Wednesday, 15 March 2017

You don’t need to put on a sad face because it’s Monday in Buenos Aires. If you are feeling down, there is a perfect way to get your mood up. Every Monday in the Konex cultural center you can go see La Bomba de Tiempo. This is a percussion ensemble, that delivers a different show every week. The technique they use is improvisation with signs. The music for each live show is created on stage, through the dialogue between the musicians and director, who leads the improvisation using a code of more than 70 signs made with the hands. Just looking at the show is impressive, and you can’t help but dance. The music is good, upbeat and makes you happy to be a part of the party and that energy goes back to the musicians who play, inspired by their audience. The atmosphere of the Konex center is also very special. It’s a great location where locals and foreigners mingle and get to know each other. The party starts at 7pm and ends at 10pm. If you are in Buenos Aires on a Monday, this is where you have to be!

Posted by Cafe San Bernardo on Wednesday, 7 September 2016

The second night of the week is a perfect excuse to get to know the neighborhood of Villa Crespo, not so famous among tourists but very popular for locals. The main attraction on Tuesday nights is the bar/cafe San Bernardo. This used to be a traditional spot for adults of the area, until the youth took over! Cafe San Bernardo, popularly known as “Sanber,” is a bar like you’ve never seen before. It’s not dark and small like most bars, it’s actually very big and lighted. From beginning to end you’ll see it full of tables and games and lots of people all around. Even at the entrance! Sanber is open every night of the week so, what’s special about Tuesdays? It’s free ping pong tournament night! You can enjoy playing at the ping pong tables for free. There’s also mini football and pool tables. Fun is what you get here!

3. Wednesday - A powerful show like you've never seen before

¿Que te despierta #FuerzaBruta?

A post shared by Fuerza Bruta (@fuerzabrutaok) on Mar 7, 2017 at 3:21pm PST

By the time you hit the middle of the week you’ll start finding more bars open till late, but if you are still trying to get through the week with some energy left, a good option is to go see a unique show. And that is at Fuerza Bruta (Brute Force)! Since 2005, this crew of acrobats, dancers and performers have provided Buenos Aires a one-of-a-kind show that combines acrobatics, dancing, live music by different DJs and interactions between performers and the public. You can literally get picked by an acrobat that is flying with a harness over your head when they decide to take you with them. Do you dare? There’s no chairs, no sitting down. Just dancing, watching, listening and enjoying. It’s a show that will play with all your senses and, in a way, it’s a party. A tip to take into consideration: you might get wet and dirty, don’t go wearing your best clothes. The show is presented in the Recoleta cultural center from Wednesday to Sunday. You can get your advanced tickets on the official website. Don’t miss it! It’s a must in Buenos Aires.

Posted by Bierlife on Monday, 26 September 2016

If you are thinking that after a long week of partying you need a good Sunday to rest, well… think again! Even though it’s usually a very familiar day for Argentinians, Buenos Aires still manages to offer a lot of options for people who wish to continue going out. Some neighborhoods are even more alive on Sundays than any other day of the week. A perfect example is San Telmo. You can enjoy the street Sunday market during the day, and when it’s closing, the open milongas will fill the streets with dancers. You will find in this area many modern bars and restaurants to go have a drink and peek a perfect week.
