Dutchmen – renowned for their mid-week drinking and protracted weekends – love Carnal for its legendary Thursday night belters – pre-Club 69 get-togethers on the stargazing deck, which is heaving with twenty-somethings and has been for the last five years.
The flickering green flames over the front door give just a hint of what’s to come. Inside, El Carnal’s cool, slightly trashy décor exudes a trailer-park vibe, while the roof terrace, which gives the bar the ‘carnality’, hums with the sexiest stargazers en route to Club Niceto, where Thursday night’s Club 69 party has historically been held.
El Carnal seldom fails to fill, and despite the news that the Club 69 party has moved from Club Niceto to a new venue around the corner, the bar will continue to throb with porteños and in-the-know out-of-towners.
