If a thousand or so sweaty male clubbers, clad in wife-beaters, crammed into what feels like an old cathedral, tempts you, then Palacio is the crown jewel of all nightclubs on a Friday night.
rnThis is when Palacio hosts the Gay Party, the largest in Buenos Aires’ growing gay scene. On Saturday nights, however, the venue hosts Big One – alongside Pacha’s Clubland, the city’s most serious electronic club night. It goes without saying that most of the crowd will be under some form of chemical anesthesia.
rnIf the main dance-floor becomes too hectic, retreat to the first-floor chill-out room, gaze down on the Boschian mayhem below and reflect on Buenos Aires’ undying thirst for trance beats, pills and cat tranquillizers. Palacio Alsina is not our favourite club by any means, but the Friday night sweat fest is as vibrant as it gets for the gay community in BA.
