Montevideo Pub Crawl– What to do in Montevideo at night?
While Montevideo is a quiet city, its nightlife is an experience that visitors should not miss out on during their stay.
In Montevideo starts quite late. People meet in bars around midnight to drink with their friends (the Previa, the prelude). They don’t go to the discotheque until around two in the morning. The party then goes on for those who like to party until sunrise, between 6 and 8 a.m.
Nightlife in Montevideo has some basic dress code rules. No need for fancy dressing, but nightclubs could care about fancy dressing if you do not know the doorman and the rules.
Uruguayan people can “dress casual” to go out, but the dress code rules include no flip flops, swimming shorts, or tank tops as it would be usual in the united states.
The bars in Montevideo are lively, and people love to share drinks. No need to get wasted or compete with other pub crawlers. It is not compulsory to get wasted, you can remain casual and have fun, and you can count on your local guide to drive you around and care about sending you back home in the early hours!
The nightly entertainment options are very diverse and aimed at audiences of different ages and musical preferences.
It is essential to emphasize the preference of the townspeople for various alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails. The “Clerico” cocktail, mixed from fruit juice, white wine, and different liquors, is considered the most popular drink. Every resident has his own recipe for Clerico, which he will be happy to share.
The most memorable event in the city’s cultural life is the African Carnival, which occurs in February and is the largest and most exciting event of its kind in the country. The festive parades, a thousand unique costumes, loud rhythmic music, numerous dishes, and an incredibly warm atmosphere are the Carnival’s main distinctive features in Montevideo.
