    Casa Pueblo: Guitar songs - a trip in the past :-)

    Oh well, if you like good old guitar songs, such as Hotel California by the Eagles, and Cat Stevens songs, and all these other ones - you will be happy to listen to them once in a while when you stay at Casa Pueblo in Mendoza.

    There is a guitar in the house, and usually one of the guests will play.

    Once when I was there, Yoni (from NY, US) had his own guitar with him, and a stack of songs. We were sitting in the patio each evening and singing chorus :-)
    Still by now, when I listen to Father and Son by Cat Stevens, it's as if I am back there.
    Oh, by the way - we knew it was the next day when we heared Joni singing Morning has broken

    The pics now are from my trip in october 2005, luckily Chrischa (ha, VT member by now :-) and Felipe were there who could also play.
    They have teached Daniel - so you will encounter some nice life music :-)

    Update, July 18, 2007:
    with the youtube possibilities I have linked the two songs with videos of Eagles and Cat Stevens (each the original versions). Click on the links - and listen to the songs, then you'll get a better idea of how the atmosphere was (or can be) in Casa Pueblo :-)


    Dress Code: No dress code at all :-) Some even sit there enjoying music in their japanese yucata.... :-)

    Hard Lomo Rock: Rocking on the Hard Lomo Rock

    by Gaspar&Floppy Written Nov 19, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mr. Willy Mart��n, owner of the Hard Lomo Rock
    4 more images

    The hard lomo rock is the local, very,very local version of the Hard Rock Cafe.
    Guillermo (or Guille, or Willy) the owner it's a 57 years old guy who spent almost 30 years of his life in Canada playing in several rock bands. Years after he returned to Argentina he bought the place where the Hard Lomo is to start a furniture sales business there, later, he closed the furniture shop and opened the Hard Lomo Rock offering to Mendoza a unique place for rock and blues lovers.
    The Hard Lomo is a "hidden and secret place" for those who don't like the fanciness of Aristides street or the hundreds of touristy places in Mendoza, it's where locals go, where real people go and after going several times it's like Cheers "where everybody knows your name"
    Every thursday night there's open microphone and not only microphone but also instruments for those who want to play (everybody sing, even GUille)
    On Friday and Saturday nights there are live shows ($3.- fee)

    Dress Code: No dress code at all, it's rock 'n roll baby!

    La Patagonia: Visiting La Patagonia

    by Gaspar&Floppy Written Aug 12, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Personally speaking, it is the simplest and coolest place to have a beer with friends. It's a small place away from all the touristy bars with good music and good attention too. This place is where the real people in Mendoza go to have fun, it's worth to check them out.

    Dress Code: The only code is NO NAKED PEOPLE ALLOWED

    Hitting bars

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the Beer Street of Mendoza . A continuation of Ave. Colon , Aristides (as its known to the locals) runs all the way up to the park and is crammed with pubs, bars, restaurants. Some are hip and trendy whilst others are just shops with seats outside. Go late. Best in the summer months.

    Plaza Independencia - performances in the night

    by Trekki Written Aug 14, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Plaza Independencia - perfect for nightlife

    In the evening, Plaza Independencia stays alive until long after midnight.
    It is THE spot in Mendoza to watch any kind of performance.

    When I was there, there were some theatre performances, some live music, etc.

    But the best I ever saw was a group of schoolkids, who were performing capueira. Each one had a drum of different size, and they simply played - with all their heart and soul.
    (I never found out which school it was - but if you are in Mendoza, strolling around the plaza in the evening and hear drums - go and watch)

    Dress Code: go as you like - it's the plaza :-)

    La Gitana: latin disco

    by FelixCuchilla Written May 21, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    La Gitana is one of the biggest discos in Mendoza. There are 3 different dancefloors inside and outside with a lot of bars. Most of the time they play spanish music. The funny thing is that there always has to be the same quantity of wimen and men. So sometimes you have to wait a bit to come in.

    There are a lot of place where you can go at night. I prefer dancing. There are some discos in 'Chacras', which is 15 Km from the center. Or you can also go to 'El Challao' which is 5 Km from the center.
    The nightlife start at 1:00 am and finish at 6:00.

    To drink and dance 'La Guanaca' is a good option.
    First you can have something for dinner, and at 2:00 starts the party.
