In the heart of Venezuela’s capital, Caracas, thirsty visitors can find a wealth of establishments, from casual rooftop hangouts to chic cocktail lounges, offering many refreshing beverages. Want to try something traditional? Regional drinks include Merengadas, fruity milkshakes, and Papelón con limon, a tasty choice of sugar cane juice and lemon. Find these and many more in one of the vibrant and eclectic drinking venues dotted around the South American city.
In the heart of the fashionable district of Caracas, Las Mercedes, La Suite Bar stands as one of the most sought after establishments in town. Available for private booking, this lounge bar is renowned as much for its lavish décor as it is for its eccentric themed nights. Although typically you’ll hear house and 80s music here, during the week more traditional music is often played. Monday nights offer tango classes and Wednesday nights are dedicated to all things jazz, with the weekends seeing DJs playing boisterous sets of all genres.
Watch out for: the plethora of shots available

Although the restaurant here serves delicious Thai food, the better option at this establishment is by far the bar. If you’re looking to find a great spot with Asian flare, Bar Sí should be your top choice. The interior here features several delicately decorated orchids at the entrance, and the music played is soft and international, transporting customers to faraway lands. The dim lighting and intimate setting make it a cosy spot for a first date or romantic meeting.
Watch out for: the sweet and refreshing sauvignon blanc
