1. Sha

Bar, Argentina

Come to Sha and you’ll enter a world of Aladdin-style décor and Arabian magic. High arches and mosaics on the walls transport guests to an exotic wonderland while they sip expertly mixed cocktails. Brilliantly located as a base point to start a bar crawl in Nueva Córdoba, after visiting El Sha you can take a walk down Calle Rondeau between Avs H Yrigoyen and Chacabuco after midnight and take your pick from any of the fun and pumping bars.

2. Ojo Bizarro

Bar, Argentina

Ojo Bizarro is one of the city’s most bohemian hangouts and it is a great place to come and start the night. Spacious rooms and mood lighting define the space of this bar, where each room has its own individual DJ. Be careful when you move in the surrounding area as it has a reputation for being slightly unsavory, especially late at night.

3. Barranca Live Club

Barranca Live Club

Barranca Live Club is extremely popular with the movers and shakers of the city who are looking to go dancing on their night out. Part of the hustle and bustle of the Albasto nightlife, this live-music venue and disco is a good place to start the night as it fills up far earlier than most surrounding bars, around 11pm. On Fridays they throw Latino dance parties and on Saturdays they have bands and live music.

4. Maria Maria

Bar, Pub Grub

Maria Maria is the perfect bar. With cheap drinks, a friendly crowd, and the nice mix of locals and ex-pats, what else could you ask for? Located right in the heart of Córdoba’s buzzing night scene, Maria Maria is a great spot to hit just as the night has started to warm up, around midnight, for the best music and crowds.

5. Captain Blue

Bar, Argentina

While you might think of tango first when thinking of dancing in Argentina, Córdoba actually has a huge salsa and bachata scene too. All the Latin vibes you could ever dream of can be found at Captain Blue. Often host to live bands and professional dancers, this bar is a great spot to come and get your groove on. If you’re too shy to dance, you’ll enjoy just sipping a drink and observing the talent.

6. O'Connors

Pub, Pub Grub

You probably didn’t come to Argentina to visit an Irish pub, but O’Connors isn’t just any old pub. This pub is incredibly popular with ex-pats and also with locals, and is perhaps the best spot in the city to come for a good pint. For homesick Brits, this is the place to come for some classic pub meal and it’s also a great venue for watching sports.

7. Johnny B Good

Bar, Pub, Beer, Wine, Cocktails, Pub Grub, Argentina, Fast Food, Street Food

From an Irish pub to an American one, Johnny B Good is one of the most popular drinking spots in town, and with good reason. Huge cardboard cutouts of old rockers surround you as you sip your drinks, and here you also have the option to feast on American food. There’s a daily happy hour, making this place great value for a post-work tipple.

8. X-Bar

Bar, Pub Grub, Argentina

La Canada is a popular area for bars and open-air drinking, and X-Bar is one of the area’s most popular venues. With funky décor using second-hand furniture and old-school style advertisements as posters, X Bar has a hipster vibe. Anywhere in La Canada is guaranteed fun, so this is the perfect spot to go for a pre-party drink to get the night started.

9. Dada Mini Tienda Bar

Bar, Pub Grub, Argentina

Dada Mini Tienda bar has a brilliant atmosphere and is a lot of fun on a night out. It describes itself as ‘the bar of your dreams’, and whether that’s the case or not, this bar provides lots to keep punters happy. With live DJs on the weekends and expertly mixed cocktails, including everything from bloody Marys to white Russians, there’s something for everyone at this fun and funky little bar.

10. Memphis Social Club

Bar, Pub Grub

Memphis Social Club is a cool spot to have some beers after work. They also serve up some delicious empanadas should you get a bit peckish. A typically Argentine bar, you’ll find little more than Quilmes beer and Fernet to drink here, but that part of the charm. This bar regularly hosts live bands, supporting local talent and showcasing particularly Argentine rock.
