The stylish design of Caracas Bar in Buenos Aires’ Palermo district is one of those places that defy classification. One night may be stuffed full of the city’s beautiful and trendy set shaking it to named-DJs, the next it’s packed to the rafters with rockers and skaters moshing up a sweat in tribute to a live local band.
Whichever crowd happens to be holding court when you visit, you can be assured of three things. One, you’ll enjoy great drinks – namely, well-mixed cocktails and a wide selection of beers – courtesy of sexy bartenders. Two, you’ll be infected with the open-minded and party-hungry vibe generated by the locals on the bar’s expansive terrace. And three, having seen others indulge, you won’t be able to resist ordering some of the amazing arepas.
In addition to music, Caracas Bar takes its art very seriously. The bar’s modern art, in the form of wall mural and canvas paintings, makes for an excellent conversation starter – perfect for overcoming language barrier-provoked interruptions of the party atmosphere.
