Although Halloween is a foreign celebration for Argies, partying is plenty local, and any excuse to put on a costume and have a night of non-stop fun is more than welcome. This is why over the years this Anglo festivity has been embraced by many of the city’s clubs and bars, and their fellow clients. There may not be much trick or treating here, but there will certainly be a great many Halloween Parties. Below are a few of the top options:
All Hallows Eve Pub Crawl: Buenos Aires Pub Crawl is the most well known Halloween crawl of the city. How does it work? After signing up through their webpage, meet at 10pm at Plaza Armenia for pizza, beer, and wine, then start the ghoulish exploration of three or four city bars and dance the night away at a nightclub. The 120 peso price includes the pizza, beer, and wine at the starting point, a free shooter at each bar, drink discounts, and a free club admission.
Sugar Bar’s Halloween Night: Another great option is heading to Sugar Bar in Palermo where there will be screenings of scary music videos and Halloween movies, prizes for best costumes and special discounts on drinks! Costa Rica 4619, Palermo. 4831 3276
Million’s Haunted House Halloween Party: This hot bar in the Recoleta area is perfect for Halloween. Set in an old remodeled house, full with chandeliers, black cat and all, it offers the perfect setting for mysterious masks and more. They will also be offering special discounts on some drinks and prizes to the best costume. Paraná 1048, Recoleta. 4815-9925
Dubstep.ar Halloween Special at Club Niceto: Admittedly you don’t need Halloween to play dress up at Niceto but its still a great excuse and their electronic parties are known to last until the break of dawn, so this should be no exception! Niceto Vega 5510, Palermo. 4779 9396
Magdalena’s Party is also celebrating Halloween and they are not leaving the candy out!! Special treats, Jell-O shots, a pumpkin carving contest and prizes to the best costume will be part of the festivity. Thames 1795, Palermo. 4833 9127
