Buenos Aires

You won't be surprised to learn that Buenos Aires really heats up, rocking, rolling, and of course, tangoing with a passion, after dark. Most visitors will want to have a taste of tango, which is, after all, what's helped put Argentina – and particularly Buenos Aires culture – on the map.

Champagne flows and drum-and-bass reverberate amongst a crowd of the hip and the beautiful in this exclusive party-till-dawn hotspot. Ladies are always free, but gentlemen must be ready to dish out for the $20 cover.

Serving friendly pints and exceptional bar food with a kick, this British pub-inspired watering hole is a good place to strike up conversation with locals, expats, and travelers alike. Prices are right, so a pint and a spicy curry or Pad Thai will probably be less than the cab fare to get there.
