For those who love the night, this is the place for you. Buenos Aires has more than enough bars, cafés and live music venues to keep you dancing for weeks. Things don't really get going in the city until after midnight. Consequently many places will still be jumping at 7am so you have plenty of time to immerse yourself in the pulsating nightlife. Trends change quickly in Buenos Aires, so check where the best night spots are before you head out.
Although the city has a great party atmosphere, don't be discouraged if it isn't for you. Buenos Aires is a city that never sleeps, so it's easy to find something to do every night of the week. For performing arts and classical music, head to Av Corrientes, the Broadway Buenos Aires.
Buenos Aires is also home to the sultry tango and a visit here wouldn't be complete without heading to a tango show and dinner. If you're feeling more adventurous, sign up for a tango lesson and learn the dance of the city.
