Suka Bar its a good choice for have a drink with frineds and hear some good live music:chill out, soul, funk, bossa, jazz .
For thos ewho are Rum lovers, will find flavored Rums.
Try Absolut Citroen Mojito with Vodka, good taste!!
Dress Code: casual wear. No shorts,
Greenwich Pub: small "english" pub
If you happen to be alone and/or are not very much into those stylish and crowded upper-class spots, this is a small english-style pub just south of Plaza Altamira. (Rather) Safe surrounding, opens daily 6pm - 3am. Don't be confused - only the interior looks english, the people and the music are caraqueño...
san ignacio mall, and las mercedes!: the best places and zones for a good party night
when you want to go on a party night there is nothing better that san ignacio mall! it is in a very central place of the city, besides it is the zone of the city with the best security. ubicated in la castellana, Chacao and with a cab service 24/7.
Dress Code: most of the people goes with a casual style, you can use any shirt or chemise and dark jeans or casual pants. when you are foreigner it realy doesn't matter to much.
We went to Samoa a bar that looks like a surf bar, no it's a surf bar...
It looked very good inside and the staf was very friendly, again not many englisch speaking people inside... I realy have to learn some spanish.
But the atmosphere in the bar was very good, a lot of young people having drinks at the tables. They also serve cocktails but this time we stayed with some beers.
I think its a very COOL bar and a must when you are going for a drink in Caracas.
You will find the bar in the Area Mercedes, an area where you find a lot of bars, clubs and restaurants. Its also quite save for tourists at night.
Dress Code: Just look casual....its a surf bar
- Beer Tasting
If you are gay, I recommend Copa's, although more so for lesbians. There were gay men, it was more a woman's place, and it was (at least in December 06) the only womans' place, it seemed. Do not rely too much on lonely planet as a guide as the latest edition had me going to clubs that had been shut down 2 years. Copa's is a big square room with a dj and two small bars - that's basically it. It's not fancy but it is a good time and a must if you're a gay/bi woman) and probably worth it if you're a gay man as well, at least for a quick stop. People get there late (after 12) and the cover of about 5 American gets you a few free drinks.
Dress Code: casual, wear anything (although like anywhere a fanny pack and flip-flops might get you some stares)
- Budget Travel
- Gay and Lesbian
- Women's Travel
Sabor Alino: Hot drinks
Maybe a weird thing to want to go for coffee or hot chocolate milk on a hot evening, but sometimes that is just what you want! Sabor Alino is a great place for that! The hot drinks are good ans the service is more then OK! They might look at you in a funny way when ordering your hot drink at night but like I said, it's not the most common thing!
La Union: Street party
La Union is a street where in the evenings bunches of people drive up to. Doors open, music on maximum volume, friends dancing together by the car, loud laughter, drinking... Basically a collection of small group gathering forming one big party on the streets! This isn't legal but it doesn't harm anyone (there are no residential houses on that street) and the police doesn't seem to care too much. The street is pretty much on the top of a hill which makes it great to party in the open, tousand lights benethe you, big bright moon above you. It's something you have to experience!
Evena's bar: Evana's bar
Here it's the terras that makes it special. It's outdoor (obviously) but there is a roof over the terras; seating consists of big puff and low tables decorated with candles. Very comfi! As you slouch in the puffs, you have vieuw on a big screen hanging high above you. They project big events or music clips on this screen. So if you would run out of things to talk about, atleast you have something to stare at ;)
Dress Code: I wouldn't rcommend short skirts or dresses for the ladies, it's not very handy to sit in a puff when wearing that!!
San Ignacio: Jet Set
San Ignacio is the place you want to go to if you want to party with the wealthier Caracans. In this area, the drinks in the bar are also more expensive and you will see the most incredible lignes to get into certain clubs. Girls flirting with the doorman so he will let them in, guys trying to pay them... I found it funnier to observe this secne from a short distance then actually being a part of it...
Samoa: Surf it up!
This is an all surfing bar. When inside, it seems as though you actually are on the island Samoa, getting ready to ride the waves! They even built a huge sequoia tree inside the bar to make it look like the island. This is one of the coolest bars I have ever been to! An absolute MUST, even if only for the exotic cocktails you can get!
Trench Town: Chill out
The name of the bar says it all; this bar is a reggea bar. The vibe is very relaxed, people chatting to one another, map of Jamaica painted on the wall, cubic seating puffs, green, yellow, red ans blue lights. If you are at all into reggea, you must not skip this place!!
El Leon: Relaxed Terras
If you would ask me what is special about "El Leon", I wouldn't know what to answer.. It's just a simple terras with white plastic tables and chairs. Just a good place to unwind with some friends and a cold beer, after a busy day. Every now and then some street performers pass by to do a little show or promote something. You can also order snacks and pizzas here. Everything you need to calmly end an evening!
Dress Code: You could go wearing a garbagebag, nobody cares what you wear there!
12:31: Party till noon!
What makes this club different from all the other ones, is the fact that i closes EXACTLY at 12:31... at NOON! Party go-ers, get here pretty late, you pay admision to get in, with which you get a bottle of liquor (Venezuelans like to have a good drink) and kepp partying until noon. The inside is very modern, with very cool seats where you can lounge out if your feet get tired, a dancefloor with black lights, loud hip music and lots of action going on. Even if you don't want to dance, you'll have a great time watching the dancers! The music played here is mostely reggeaton and HipHop/R&B. The public varies between ages 16 (with fake id) to 25. W
Dress Code: Dress to impress!
The Flower: Oldies
This club called "The Flower" didn't steal it's name. Inside the club, the walls and cealing are covered in flower print. Very different! I was told this club has been in Caracas since the 70's. Guess we know where the inspiration came from hunh?! In this club you wil find couples and groups of friends mostley , 30+, which occational exceptions ofcourse. This is a good place to dance salsa, merengue, reggeaton, bachta... Great fun!
Dress Code: Doesn't really matter what you wear, it's kind of dark on the dancefloor, but ofcourse, you always want to look your best when going to a club, no?
La Tasquita: Super cheap cocktails
In this bar you will find what are probably the cheapest cocktails of Caracas! Somewhat weird liquor combinations, set on fire... Impressive show around the drinks. If you want to be a little daredevil, order a "sangre del predatore"... NOT FOR BEGINNERS!!!
The bar itself isn't the fancyest place but it's pretty cosy. There is a tv hanging in there where they put on the important baseball games or the miss Venezuela elections. It's not a very safe place to go to as a tourist but if you are accompanied with Venezuelan friends, there is nothing to worry about! Except maybe drinking too much...
Dress Code: Do not wear your fancy clothes, dress down!
