  • Bungalow 6: bad time at Bungalow 6

    by atelopus Written May 12, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I had a very bad experience at a bar called Bungalow 6. The doorman said my wife was a *** and refused us entry. Afterwds we went to No Bar, the owner explained that the doorman of Bungalow 6 has several penal lawsuits against him and asked if we would act as witnesses for them, they even gave us a bottle of champagne. We are very surprised that a bar so well known as Bungalow 6 is employing such a charcter. We do not know his name, but he is recognizable for his oversized ears.

    Huaina: Only the Best Bar in the Mariscal

    by parana Written Apr 23, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is laid back and serves up some of the least expensive drinks in the Mariscal.

    Tuesday and Wednesday it's pretty dead, but Thursday through Saturday the "dance floor" (an empty space in between the tables) is packed. The music ranges from Reggaeton to Madonna, with Michael Jackson almost always making an appearance. The dj will take requests.

    The bartenders are very friendly and accommodating. The drinks are strong and varied. If what you want is not on the menu, ask them to make it for you.

    Closed on Sunday and Monday.

    Bungalow 6: LADIES NIGHT

    by parana Written Apr 23, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bungalow 6 is where you will find the gringos and the gringueros (the ecuatorianos who "hunt" the gringas).

    On Wednesday night between 6pm and 10pm is Ladies' Night. Women drink for free and the music is poppy with the classics such as "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun." Men cannot enter until 10pm, so plan to show up separately if you in a mixed group.

    Dress Code: If you are a white woman, you can pretty much get away with anything. But most people generally dress up.

    Cubano: Dance the night away to live Cuban Music!

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cuban Place of Reina Victoria

    This place is great. You might have to pay $4 to get in, but that will give you a free drink (mojito or cuba libre) and you get to dance the night away to live Cuban music! The music is great, and the people working there don't mind showing you some steps (trust me, they really know what they are doing!). The atmosphere is great and the crowed varied, but what you all have together is that you want to sweat the night away salsa dancing!!!

    Open until 2am.

    Bar Tenders in NoBar...

    It is GREAT!!! bartenders keep doing different shows during the night while music makes you move no matter what time is it. Each time i went to that night club i had a blast.

    Dress Code: I guess they dont have a dress code, since i could get inside with jeans and sneakers and flip flops....

    Mariscal Sucre area: Gringolandia!

    by CrazyShoes Written Oct 14, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Mariscal Sucre area, or better known as 'Gringolandia' , is the main tourist hub of Quito. It runs from Parque El Ejido in the South up to Avenida Orellana in the North, and is centered around the road Juan Leon Mera. Most of Quito's budget accommodation is located here, as well as every tourist service you could possibly want.

    A five minute walk through this area will take you past many funky restaurants featuring every cuisine under the sun, popular bars and clubs that stay open until dawn with cheap drinks, as well as numerous internet cafes and other basic services like banks, laundromats and mini-marts.

    This is one area you'll end up in regardless of if you are looking for it.

    Huaina: Chill place where you get to choose the music

    by tejanasueca Written May 21, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pic from inside Huaina

    Great place to go and chill with some friends. They serve up the regular sortmet of drinks and pass around a chart of music to pick from. So, if you get there in descent time, you can pick what music is to be played that night. Because of this arrangement, the music is very varied from hip-hip, salsa, and Grease! Dance to your favorite, and sit down and enjoy a beer and your company when the other music is played. The crowed is a blend between Ecuadorians and gringos.

    Kinda "iffy" if there is a cover charge or not, but if you get there early you are likely to not have to pay.

    Monique: Dance and Kareoke

    by tejanasueca Written Feb 18, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Monique (with Huaina right next to it)

    This is an awesom place. When we went here with our Ecuadorian friends, we were the only gringas/os in the place. After that we had the guts to sing an English song on the karoeke machine, we were accepted into the group. At the end of the night, we were all singing together with all of our NEW Ecuadorian friends. They also turn the karoeke machine of every now and then so that you can dance. Of course, being the only gringas in the bar, there were always plenty of guys wanting to dance with you.

    So go here, sit somewhere in the middle, order some Pilsner, and just enjoy yourself!

    Dress Code: Whatever

    My only nightlife experience in Quito is at the hotel Auberge Inn (see my accomodation tip). This is not at all "Saturday Night Fever" but you can meet other travelers, share your experiences and your plans, and have a beer or two!

    Plaza de Independencia: A different city ?

    by filipdebont Updated Sep 5, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Plaza de Independencia

    Because of the music, we took another road, and like this we arrived at this big Plaza.

    I was kind of overwhelmed by the beauty of the lighted colonial buildings.

    And I must also tell you that there were almost 28 days in between my first visit to Quito and this one. So like this I was really convinced that I had missed this square at my first visit. I did not recognise these buildings.
    Wow, so beautiful, it was almost impossible that I had been here, a month ago.
    Till the moment that one of my fellow travellers, told me that the big building on the other side was the Cathedral, and then I started to remember the buildings as the looked like by daylight. Indeed this was the biggest square of old Quito The plaza de independencia.

    How strange, that a city-view can change at night.

    More nightviews in the travelogue.

    Plaza de Independencia: Dancing on the Plaza

    by filipdebont Written Sep 5, 2003

    dancing on the Plaza

    There was loud music on the Plaza. And the group of young students were dancing on the Plaza.

    An open Ranchero was waiting for them in order to transport them to another Plaza, where they could continue their celebration.

    At the other side of the Plaza there was another group of young people dancing and singing.

    live music on the Plaza

    As we left the restaurant La Cueva del Oso, we heard music, singing and yelling.

    Of course, we wanted to satisfy our curiosity.
    Like this we arrived at the plaza de Independencia, where a group of young people were celebrating.

    There was life music, and lots of singing, yelling and dancing.

    It was a kind of celebration of university students.
