Due to a strong contingent of college students and a steady influx of party-hungry backpackers, Sucre boasts a surprisingly vibrant after-dark scene for such a quaint colonial town. A number of hip tourist-friendly bars can be found scattered throughout the center, the perfect place to meet new friends before hitting up a city club. Here are the best places to party in town.

1. Goblin Bar and Microbrewery

Pub, Bar, South American

Artisanal beer enthusiasts might want to give this local microbrewery a try – famous for its selection of exquisite locally made beers. Their golden and amber ale go down a treat, while the stout is a filling option for those after something a little more substantial. Small and intimate, Goblin is ideal for beer lovers who just want to have a quiet chat between new-found friends.

2. La Vieja Bodega

Wine Bar, Wine Seller, Restaurant, South American

Packed full of rich-oak wine barrels and with a bright wooden décor, this charming central wine bar is an excellent spot to sample some of Bolivia’s best vinos. Be sure to give their dinner service a try: packed full of regional delicacies, it compliments the fine wine to a tee.

3. Café Restaurant Florin

Bar, Cafe, Restaurant, Pub Grub

Aside from being one of the most popular gringo-friendly eateries in Sucre, this buzzing Dutch-run hangout fills up with foreigners in the evening as the restaurant evolves into a lively bar. The main attraction? The owner sells his craft brew on tap, which just so happens to be among the finest beer in Bolivia.

5. KulturCafe Berlin

Hotel Restaurant, Restaurant, Bar, Nightclub, South American, German

Since opening its doors way back in the 80s, KulturCafe Berlin has been bringing German style hospitality to the city of Sucre in style. Backpackers love the colonial era edifice, and leafy garden surrounds, while its bustling on-site restaurant and bar is a hit with both tourists and locals alike. Keep an eye out for live music nights which have a reputation for being among the most pumping parties in town.

6. Joy Ride Café

Bar, Restaurant, Cafe, Nightclub, South American, Contemporary

Perhaps the most famous tourist hangout in Sucre, Joy Ride sells tours and coffee during the day, before becoming a tumultuous watering hole at night. Their “not just for gringos” motto rings true as plenty of locals frequent the joint on weekends, many in the hopes of canoodling with their visiting counterparts. Expect plenty of action even on the quieter nights.

7. Mitos

Nightclub, South American

For a boozy and boisterous discoteca with cheap alcohol galore, head to this unpretentious club to the north of the center. Outrageous 3×1 mixed drink deals are available until midnight, probably due to the fact that nobody arrives until at least 2am. Considering rival club Mooy closed at the end of last year, Mitos may well be the hottest ticket in town.
