TALES FROM THE ROAD
IF YOU GO TO BUENOS AIRES AND DON’T PARTY WITH LA BOMBA, YOU’RE BLOWING IT
Konex Cultural Centre is renowned for being a hub of Buenos Aires nightlife. But on Mondays, the effervescent atmosphere gets turned up to 11, at around the same time as La Bomba die Tiempo take to the stage.
This 17-piece improvisational drum band kick ass. Like, seriously kick ass. They draw one of the Konex’ strongest crowds – perhaps the strongest crowd – and they play on a Monday night. Think about that. How many Monday nights go off in your town?
A GUIDE TO BUENOS ARIES’ SPEAKEASIES
When talking about South American nightlife, one cannot get by without mentioning Buenos Aires. This is because, to be blunt, the Argentine capital’s after-hours scene is one of the world’s best.
And though there are many well-known restaurants and clubs lining the streets of BA, the city has a boozy underbelly that takes cues from prohibition America. Some of the bars that make up this underground scene have no address. You have to know a secret passcode to gain access to others. Some are for members only. Most are incredibly invigorating spots to grab a quiet drink…or two.
