Nightlife in Mendoza, Argentina: Nightclubs, Bars & More

Nightlife in Mendoza, Argentina

Mendoza's nightlife is centered around bars, nightclubs and shows. Things begin to heat up on Wednesday evenings, with a variety of venues offering live music. Local students and twenty-somethings especially enjoy Wednesdays out as a way to unwind in the middle of a long week of work and studying. Thursdays are considered singles' night, when groups of locals gather at bars and pubs downtown. Fridays are best for a night out on the town. Locals and tourists begin the evening at a downtown bar or pub, shifting to a larger "boliche" (Argentine word for nightclub) after midnight. Saturdays are typically considered date nights for couples, providing a more relaxed atmosphere than the Friday craziness.

Even though most of the bars and nightclubs are spread out all over Mendoza, cheap taxis and minibuses make it easy to get where you want to go. As in most cities, a nightclub or bar's popularity can shift from week to week. Ask local college students or your hotel staff about the best places to visit each weekend.
