Is There a Buenos Aires Pub Crawl?

Share on:

Buenos Aires is one of the world’s great party cities, so a pub crawl would be fitting for visitors to get pointed to the right neighborhoods to explore the bonkers nightlife.

2024 Update:

The original Buenos Aires Pub Crawl founded in 2008 was so legendary there are still traces on the internet, but it is no longer in operation.

The creators Roger Trueba and Dustin Luke have moved on to bigger and better things (Dustin Luke, became a Youtuber and TV personality known for his excellent grasp of the Argentine slang, lunfardo).

Anyway, taking a bunch of young people — some who aren’t even old enough to drink in their respective countries — on a bohemian death march through the streets on Buenos Aires was a slightly risky venture.

Luckily if there is one thing that is easy to do in Argentina, it’s party.
Read on to find similar fun and social food and drink events taking place every week in Buenos Aires hot spots such as Palermo and San Telmo.

Beware that there is a copy-cat of the original ‘BA pub crawl’ or similarly named activity on the internet, but it’s got nothing but bad reviews.

Instead here are some excellent PUB CRAWL-LIKE ACTIVITIES for libation lovers that take place seven nights a week
