BEST BARS & NIGHTLIFE IN CORDOBA, ARGENTINA

9/10 

Being a university city, Cordoba is not short on bars or people who go to them; the city is chalked full. You’ll have no problem finding somewhere to go out everyday of the week, whether it is with locals or fellow tourists. The main spots are in Nueva Cordoba and Abasto. There are some more expensive clubs farther out in Chateau Carreras, but I wouldn’t bother trying to meet people there.

I recommend: PulseA good place to go in Nueva Cordoba to see some beautiful people and dance the night away. Studio Theatre is said to be good as well.

 

IS CORDOBA, ARGENTINA SAFE?

Yes, Cordoba is safe.. The only real risks for tourists are pickpockets and some of the seedier neighborhoods which lie outside of the city.
