Our guide to gay bars in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is similar to most major Spanish cities in that things begin late. No self-respecting person would want to be seen in a club before 2am, and most clubs stay open until 7am. The best thing to do is have a late dinner and then go to a pre-dance bar. Don’t be surprised if you see people still arriving at restaurants to start their dinner at 1 a.m. Discos open at about 1:30 a.m., but no one arrives before 2:30, and the crowd doesn’t peak until 4:00.

Most Argentinians like to go out at the weekends so bars and clubs can be rather quiet during the week, Fridays and Saturdays being the best nights to go out. Do your sightseeing on weekdays and save the weekends for clubbing!

Between dinner and dancing, most people go to bars to have some drinks, meet friends and decide which disco they are going to later. Most dance clubs have cover charges in the range of $15, generally including appetizers or even dinner.

Contramano – open Tue-Sat from 12am and Sunday from 8pm – has one mid-size dance floor, surrounded by mirrors and full of 30-somethings. It is the longest running gay club in Buenos Aires, playing a mix of pop and Latin music. “Contramano” is very central and also a good bet if you want to go out mid-week.

Equally cruisy but completely different is nearby Angel’s with its two dance floors and two bars open Thursday to Sunday from 12am and catering for a mix of young disco boy babe bunnies, TVs and TGs. You’ll either love it or hate it.

Many of the busiest bars can be found north at the junction of Avenida Cordoba and the street called Gascon. The main style haunt is definitely Sitges on Cordoba itself, open Weds-Sun from 10.30pm and – reaching far back, bar beyond bar – is packed with pre-club posers propping up walls or lilted at tables.

Many are just itching to get down GLAM, back on Cabrera again. Open Thurs-Sat from 1am, GLAM has one dance floor playing all the latest tunes, two bars, a pleasant patio where you can actually talk and a dark room upstairs where there isn’t much talking. Cheap, the place gets very crowded on Saturdays, not least because some use it is a springboard onto the other club in the area – Amerika, back on Gascon.

Fridays and Saturdays, shirtless hunks head to Amerika and take to the beat on the main dance floor and in surrounding levels throughout the club. Don’t even think of hitting the place before 2:00 am.

While Sitges is still the busiest bar in town, two other bars that are always popular include Flux where you can break the ice on arrival with happy hours from 7pm, earliest in city and Peuteo a 7pm-3am gay bar with sexy staff, shot boys and a mostly young male crowd.

  • Where to Stay

    Stay in Palermo, the pinkest district in Buenos Aires. The neighborhood has great boutique hotels with large rooms and hidden roof terraces with pools and spas! Its easy to catch a taxi to the other areas if you want to go clubbing, but most of the busiest bars are in this district, easily accessible on foot.
