Of all the Irish bars in BA, the ‘Shammy’ attracts the more acclimatized ex-pats, as well as the open-minded locals who take pride in welcoming outsiders with open arms. The basement of the Shamrock has seen a resurgence in recent times.
rnWhat was a dodgy subterranean vault has become a vibrant dance-floor flanked by sofas and headed by a raised bar. Thursdays (from midnight) and the weekend (Fridays and Saturdays from 1am) are all popular nights for downstairs Shammy action, while the street-level bar usually brims from 10pm onwards.
rnFor strip club enthusiasts, The Shamrock’s Recoleta location, just off Callao Avenue, is a 10-minute walk from Buenos Aires’ adult entertainment hotspots (see PARTY).
