    W Lounge: Dancing, Drinks and Style

    by mcaffa Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Personally, W is my favorite place to go dining and dancing. It is considered one of the more exclusive nightime establishments in Montevideo. It's not uncommon to see many local celebrities and models there. There are various areas which play different types of music. I highly recommend checking it out.

    Dress Code: Very stylish and trendy

    by mcaffa Updated Jan 31, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In recent years, the Ciudad Vieja in Montevideo has recently become the center of the city's nightlife. The main street are lined up with great restaurants, bars and nightclubs.

    Dress Code: Dressing up a bit always helps, but really, anything goes.

    Small city Uruguay: Nightlife can mean after midnight

    by melosh Written Dec 17, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just as in Buenos Aires, Montevideo and Rio de Janiero the night social activities tend to start late in the evening in small cities of Uruguay so do not be fooled by empty restaurants etc. at 9:30 PM on a Saturday night.

    Dress Code: Casual dressy.

    Club Nautico y de Pesca: Cuchilla Alta

    by mcaffa Updated Jul 6, 2006

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Each summer, the nighlife in Cuchilla Alta changes. It seems that every year there is a new "in" place to hang out. However, chances are that the following year it won't be around (sometimes for financial reasons, other times due to a shift in clientel) and that there will be a new "in" place to go to.

    Year to year, the atmosphere changes. If you happen to hit a boring year, you can always check out the nightlife in nearby Atlantida and Piriapolis. Since these are much bigger resort towns, you have a lot of bars, nightclubs and discos to choose from.

    Back in Cuchilla Alta, the one place that is likely to be open year after year is the local Nautical Club. In recent years, it has attracted quite a young crowd on the weekends in the summer. I'd say the average age range there is 14-19. If you don't mind hanging with the kiddies, it can actually be fun (after several liters of beers, that is). Lots of cumbia, rock nacional and popular Brazilian music. And if dancing isn't quite your thing, you can stay at the main bar, play pool, or drink a beer and have a pizza (with faina! mmmm) on the outdoor balcony.

    Dress Code: Whatever you want to wear.....since this is your typical Uruguayan "balneario", jeans and a nice top are fine.

    when nite is falling: life can be a breeze

    by pepples46 Updated Feb 19, 2006

    in Punta Gorda, strolling along the Pier after a good meal..seafood is delishes, then dancing in the local pub or niteclub. tango is the passion they share with the Argentine, knowing or saying Gardel.. is Urugaiano.
    don't raise your expectations...it's all a little bit..on a smaller scale, but I think nobody will mind that, Uruguay is a little short of population just 3.5 mill.
    but sunrise and sunsets......ahhhhhhhhh!

    Dress Code: not a problem, casual or dress up, the choice is yours, I only know...Uruguayanos like good manners, dressing up and presenting themselfs in best way they can

    Salu - Pub de Tango: are you looking for Tango?

    by gandara Updated Jan 7, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can listen and dance Tango with professional dancer....Nice people, always welcoming you.
    The bar has a wonderful romantic story : opposite the old jail, a young lady used to live in a flat above the bar and became in love with one of the prisoner whom she saw everyday in the courtyard of the prison. When he finished his time in jail, they married, bought the bar and dance tango for ever......... Nice..........true or false, no important.

    Most night clubs in Uruguay don't get started till around 2:00. A great way to pass the time is to pick up some "Cortado". This is wine served in a pop bottle with some type of soft drink mixed in. Very cheap..... This is a nice way to meet Locals and make some friends before headin to "Da club".

    Dress Code: HAha none

    (Near Montevideo Sheraton): Drink and sing with your friends!

    by bkathryn Written Jun 6, 2003

    On our last evening in Montevideo, after coming back from the North, some of us decided to go for a beer and a bite to eat. We had some lovely "munchies" and managed to get into singing "contests" (they weren't really contests) with our neighbours in the upstairs of the establishment!

    Dress Code: Not that I noticed or was mentioned.

    Actually a winery near Montevideo.

    Mi favorita actividad de la noche es ir a bailar. Hay muchas discotecas que son muy accesibles y se puede llagar a ellas de una forma muy fácil.
    Lo que hace mi noche fabulosa es ir a bailar y conocer gente de mi edad ahi, y aveces ir con mis amigos y pasarla bien con ellos.

    by Vanille_rum Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are two clubs in Colonial. 'El Pueblo Viaje' is for younger people, from 16 over! And there is another club i forgot the name, but they check your ID strictly. if you are over 18, you can get in any clubs basically. In Montevideo, must go 'Lounge,' it has two floors and nice atomosphere. there are some clubs along Punta de Este, mostly more expensive to get in and lots of Argentinas from Buenos Aires.
    most clubs on Urugay get peak from mognight to 2. and they work till 6am. after 2am, they play Salsa. some Americans get sick of this but those latinas get more excited when they move with Salsa misic. if you have time, practice Salsa. They dance very well.
