Gay nightlife in Mendoza isn’t anything near as wild as in Buenos Aires, but thanks to the city’s small size you can meet people and zero in on your preferred scene quite easily. Here are some good places to start, for food and dancing:
Espacio 348 — A gay-friendly bar with a cool oriental décor, decent food, and pretty good music, including their popular ‘Club Zen’ parties.
San Lorenzo 348
Tel: (0261) – 429-5082
Casa 3 — A fun gay-friendly pub and restaurant that brings in some pretty good DJ’s. The food is better than the typical pub fare and the atmosphere is comfortable.
San Lorenzo 490
• Closed Sundays
La Reserva Pub – A small boisterous pub that hosts theater and music during the week and drag shows on weekend nights.
Tel: (0261) 420-3531

Estación Miro — Here you’ll find quite an eclectic mix of gay men and women and many transsexuals dancing the night away. Anything can happen here — and it probably will.
