    Casa Clari: Local's spot with a great view

    by DSwede Updated May 20, 2012

    View from Casa Clari

    Having a few local friends really helps to find the nice places in quick fashion. The bar Casa Clari has a great veranda to enjoy the fresh air and evenings. Couple that with a great view of the Palacio de los López, and it makes a memorable and comfortable stop.

    The service may not be the greatest, but it by no means bad. The prices are much less than some of the other bars so it is easy to overlook the slight short comings in service. The food is good too.

    Typical on weekends and special occasions, the bar also has live music. For their schedules, check the website.

    During the day, the same complex, (Manzana de la Rivera) where the bar is located, is a museum which offers many fixed as well as rotating displays.

    Dress Code: The dress code is very casual. Some people may dress up a bit more simply because they have come from work at the end of a day. However if you dress for the weather, you will be fine.

    Astoria: Beer bar with lots of outside seating

    by DSwede Updated May 9, 2012

    Astoria is a pretty popular night spot. They do have a food menu, with decent quality, but most people come for the atmosphere and the drinks.

    There are two large open air patios on the main floor with overhead canopies to protect from the hot sun or possible rain. There is also a good size veranda on the second floor. Of course there are lots of places inside to choose from, ranging from tables to lounge chairs. There is always some music on the radio, but thanfully it is set on a good volume so that you can talk at normal levels.

    The beer menu is fairly large and even has three artesianal brews available on tap (Golden, Irish and Weiss).

    Dress Code: The dress code here is casual, but some people will typically be dressed up a bit more. Anything from sandals to suits will be just fine.

    Kilkenny's Pub: Good pub and music, 7-days a week

    by DSwede Written Apr 26, 2012

    Kilkenny

    Kilkenny's is a lively place. I passed by nearly every day of the week and there is always something going on. Some days is more casual, but on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays it is an outright party.

    Early in the afternoon, the atmosphere will be more of a pub and in the later hours it can transform into a loud club depending on if there is a band or DJ.

    Regardless, the drink menu is expansive and they have a fairly good selection of beers. The food decent too, but may not be the selling point of coming here.

    Dress Code: The dress code is casual, but most people will dress a little nicer on the weekends.

  • Various: General re Asuncion nightlife

    by socheid Updated Feb 11, 2012

    I had a weekend in Asuncion. I'm not pretending to be any sort of an expert but here's a few observations based on my visit there 2 weeks ago.

    First thing is that people in Asuncion drink three things; beer, beer and beer. I can't think of anywhere I have ever been where there is such a mass consumption of beer and such little consumption of any other alcoholic drink. I asked someone about this who said to me that Paraguayans are the world's second highest beer drinkers per head of population. They love the stuff.

    There doesn't seem to be much in the city centre. I'm not saying there isn't anything there but there doesn't seem to be much in terms of a strip of bars / clubs in the centre.

    A little to the East of the city is the Britannia Pub on Cerro Corra. This seems to be a well know and no doubt many English speaking first time visitors to Asuncion will go there as an easy option for a first bar to visit. They have signs up advertising that their craziest night is a night during the week (Weds I think) when they have an after office hours party. Its Western prices in here.

    There 3 other places all within 50 metres in either direction of Britannia. One is a bar called 'Old' (opposite the Britannia Bar) that plays classic rock. There's also rock club of which the names escapes me where they have live music. 1st night I was there they had 2 bands on playing there own material. Second night there was a Nirvana tribute band playing. The fourth place is a joint called 904 Bar which when I had a look, it was very much a sitdown and relax sort of place, very coupley.

    I was told that the number 1 place for a strip of bars etc together is at Paseo Carmalitas at Avenida Espana. This much further East and is quite a cab ride away. Essentially here there is a mall with up to maybe 10 bars / cafes / eateries (it seems to be grey what the difference is) either in the Carmalitas centre itself or within spitting distance. Across the street is a TGI Fridays if that is your thing. There's a karaoke bar within Camalitas itself where you can add your name to the list and get up and sing your favourite Spanish language song. Among the other bards is a pseudo Irish Bar named Kilkenny. They had a band playing covers of pretty well known English language staples (Oasis, Pink Floyd, Queen and if my memory serves me correctly, a Verve track). Its open til after 5 am as are some of the other Paseo Carmalitas bars.

    by realde14 Updated Aug 31, 2007

    Paseo Carmelitos offers many options in terms of nightlife such as bars like Liquid, Kamastro, or Sky Lounge as well as restaurants. It is in a nice and modern strip-mall area and caters to the more affluent section of Asuncion's population.

    Coyote: Coyote

    by realde14 Written Aug 31, 2007

    I was told that this is one of the best clubs in Asuncion and after checking it out, I am pretty sure that it doesn't get better than that. Excellent music in a modern high-tech place with retractable roof, and lots of beautiful people. Again, this caters more to the affluent crowd of Asuncion, and is not a typical place for Paraguay. As for that matter, Coyote could be a club in any metropolitan city in South America. Definitely worth checking out.
