The musical styles of cumbia and reggaeton reign supreme throughout Latin America, and Bolivia is no exception. Fortunately, La Paz does have a small but passionate electronic dance music scene, where banging parties can be found every weekend by those in the know. The best beats rotate each week between different clubs, so check out the Facebook pages of each of these recommendations to see what’s on before heading out for a big night.


A newcomer to the central La Paz clubbing scene, Groove has become a popular weekend hangout for its regular live music performances, which include pumping electro parties. With a relaxed, intimate atmosphere and drink specials into the early hours, their dedicated house, techno and psytrance parties are a must.

Roots Reggae House

As the name suggests, this small but lively venue is most famous for its reggae shows. Every so often, however, they host a killer electro night that focuses on alternative genres, such as drum n’ bass or psytrance. The unpretentious crowd creates a friendly atmosphere, so it’s all too easy to dance the night away with newfound friends.

One of La Paz’ hippest cafés and tastiest vegetarian restaurants transforms into a delectable dance party during their monthly Afternoon Sessions event. Starting from around 5PM on a Saturday afternoon and finishing up before midnight, MagicK is a great way to meet new people and enjoy awesome music without the rowdy atmosphere that late night clubs tend to entail. Of course, there are plenty of places to go afterwards for those still in the mood.

This mainstay of the city’s clubbing scene in the more affluent Zona Sur (South Area) has recently switched their focus to rock, reggae and funk. But that’s not to say EDM is done and dusted. Every month or so, Floyd’s puts on a highly anticipated event featuring a selection of the city’s best DJs.

What started out as a restaurant eventually evolved into one of the hottest clubs in Sopocachi. Most nights are focused on Latin rhythms, but when electro parties are held they tend to go off. With a multi-tiered space providing plenty of room for happy punters, Glam is surely the most glamorous place in town to let loose to some dance music goodness.
