Monique Karaoke: Monique Karaoke
An awesome place to go to in Quito to have fun. This karaoke is very local… you probably won’t meet any other foreigners there. They have mostly English and Spanish songs of course, but also some in French and Portuguese. Everybody will mix so you will have a great chance to meet new people.
I have a blog where i have more reviews about Quito nightlife by the way :

Quito nightlife is really great because it's a real mix of everything from latin music to techno or jazz... don't hesitate to come here!

Amazonas: Amazonas Ave.
This is for the young adults...Its an area the locals refer to as Amazonas... Its located on and on the streets around Amazonas Ave. There are lots of bars and dance clubs... It is very packed on Friday nights, Friday night is the party night here!! Its very fun... I woulnt recommend going by yourself though it could be dangerous. there are usually many police officers around on amazonas but you should still be careful. Dont go onto empty roads late at night... Dangerous people around....
Dress Code: Wear clothes you would wear to go out on a friday night... dancing clothes... whatever you want its really for anyone and everyone!

Finn McCool's: Pretty much what you'd expect
I know its pretty corny going to an Irish in somewhere like Ecuador. However this was my 1st of the trip in S America and I've found this sort of things a useful starting point to get the feel of a place as there will always be English speakers in the clientele (my Spanish is improving but its still at a pretty rubbish standard).
This bar is on Joaquin Pinto, 1 block away from the main social cross section at Reina Victoria and Foch.
Its billed as an Irish and is run by an Irish guy. Its largely what you'd expect. Just a regular bar with a few Guiness logos on the walls and an assortment of sporting jerseys from Gaelic sports. There's a pool table, table football and a dart board. There's no live music though and music is provided by a dj. There's plenty tvs around for showing football from Europe and also North American sports.
It was pretty busy without being over packed. Its started to wind down around 1 am. I was there on my own but I found easy enough to get conversation with other people when hanging around the bar area.
Dress Code: Casual
Bungalow: A happening place on Weds night
I must confess I thought my days in places like this were long gone but, well what can I say.
I ended up rolling in here on Weds night. It was $9 to get in that covered 2 complimentary drinks.
The place was packed with revelers, all friendly and having a good time and not a sign of trouble. If drinking and dancing with hundreds of others doing the same is your thing, you could do a lot worse than here.
ZABISTRO BAR!: F.U.N. NIGHT!!!!!!!!VERY
