I have never been in a place which I can't easily describe. Ogmios is the one. A circle, outdoor wanna-be disco with little decoration and no more than two bars, one waiter, one bartender and only one so-called bouncer where you can park your car inside, go boozed, dance till your bones break and go back home or directly to a hotel, crawling. Music, if you are open to new experiences and to a bizarre mix of techno, reaggeton, salsa and the 80's, that you'll enjoy at a low price:
As of February 4th, beers 1.000 Bs (less than a dollar each) and cocktails (if there's enough orange juice) 8.000 Bs.
Come and experience!
Dress Code: Naked to Naked to Dressed! (i.e. no dress code)
D'Barvas, the nightclub referenced previously, was fun when it was at its height; nowadays, it has turned into a rathole whose major clients are drug dealers, killers and the like. Riots involving gun shots are usual, and some have been killed there. So, don't!
Dress Code: Not fancy
It's supposed to have a beach look, that's why it's called "mare bar" (mar = sea), but the only beachie things are a rope and a little wooden boat (!)
The music alternates between different styles, so there's something for everyone. Don't be afraid to dance!!!
They start letting people in around 11 pm.
Dress Code: You should dress nice, otherwise you'll stay outside for a long time!
Men: the fancier your cell phone, the bigger you car and the "goldier" your card, the faster they'll let you in.
Women: the smaller your clothes and the bigger your implants, the faster they'll let you in.
I've only been there twice because I HATE sucking up to bouncers, but once you're in it's actually fun!
Typical venezuelan nightlife: they alternate between popular music, a bit of electronic and the musts: merengue and salsa!
Don't bother showing up before 10 or 11 pm, it will be practically empty...
Dress Code: Even tough this is a "sports bar" they won't let you in if you're wearing sneakers, let alone shorts... I'll never understand that!
