Since its start in 2004, club Bahrein is very popular both with Argentineans and tourists. One of the most happening clubs in the city, this hip place draws a mixed crowd that parties either on the top floor restaurant and lounge area, the commercial funky room, or in the groovy area located in the basement. The basement gives you a very special feeling; thousands of lights, a huge bass system and a very low ceiling evoke a real underground experience. Weekends sport mostly electronic music. Their Tuesdays are also quite famous in BA for hosting the most prominent Drum and Base night ´160´, fronted by the local talent Bad Boy Orange.
Tips: Tuesday night is their famous Drum and Bass night

Description: This futuristic tavern is blue alright, from the glowing bar top to the corrugated-tin walls to the mood lighting that even gives fake tan a blue cast. It could have been in Bladerunner - if not for the pool tables, the big-screen TV and the darn good snack menu that keeps you anchored in the present.

Maybe it has to do with the atmospheric old wooden interior, with its long wooden bar, lowered floor, decorative arch and antique cash register.

Order a bottle of red and a big wooden breadboard of picadas (the Argentine version of antipasto) and settle in for the night.
