Entertainment & Nightlife in Uruguay

As in Buenos Aires, nightlife in Montevideo means drinks after 10pm and dancing after midnight. For earlier entertainment, ask at your hotel or call the Teatro Solís, Calle Buenos Aires 652 (tel. 02/916-0908), the city's centre for opera, theatre, ballets and symphonies, for performance information.

SODRE, Avenida 18 de Julio 930 (tel. 02/901-2850), is the city's "Official Radio Service," which hosts classical music concerts from May to November. Gamblers should head to the Plaza Victoria Casino, Plaza Independencia (tel. 02/902-0111), a fashionable venue with French roulette tables, blackjack, baccarat, slot machines, horse races, and bingo. It opens at 2pm and keeps going through most of the night.

Mariachi, Gabriel Pereira 2964 (tel. 02/709-1600), is one of the city's top bars and discos, with live bands or DJ music Wednesday to Sunday after 10pm. Café Misterio, Costa Rica 1700 (tel. 02/600-5999), is another popular bar, while New York, Calle Mar Artico 1227 (tel. 02/600-0444), mixes a restaurant, bar and dance club under one roof and attracts a slightly older crowd.

Montevideo's best tango clubs are La Casa de Becho, Nueva York 1415 (tel. 02/400-2717), where composer Gerardo Mattos Rodríguez wrote the famous "La Cumparsita," and Cuareim, Zelmar Michelini 1079, which offers both tango and candombe, a lively dance indigenous to the area. La Casa de Becho is open Friday and Saturday after 10:30pm; Cuareim, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday after 9pm. The tourist office can give you schedule information for Montevideo's other tango salons.
