Nightlife & the Arts in Caracas


Caracas Nightlife

Monday must be the only night Caraqueños get any sleep, because Tuesday seems to be the unofficial start of the weekend. By Saturday the whole population appears to be out on the town. As in much of Latin America, the nightlife doesn't really get swinging until close to midnight. The trendy Las Mercedes neighborhood, packed with cafés, restaurants, bars, and dance clubs, is the place to be on Friday and Saturday. Although Caracas is generally pretty casual, clubs often require men to wear jackets. Take a taxi after dark no matter where you go or how short the distance.
