Dance, Drink, Have Fun at Sahara Continent

Sahara Continent is a fun, three-level nightclub in Recoleta. In the evening it doubles as a restaurant. Come here if you want to party, mix with locals and other tourists, and groove to reggaeton, pop and other club vibes. Sahara attracts a diverse crowd ranging in age from 20 to 35. The interior has an Arabian theme.

I went to Sahara a few weeks ago on a Friday night, and arrived around midnight. Midnight is early in Buenos Aires so people were still kicking back, finishing dinner. A belly dancer provided entertainment.

Around 1 am the staff removed the tables, the DJ cranked up the music and the restaurant transformed into a boliche (that’s what they call nightclubs in Buenos Aires).

The sound system is good and loud and the music (at least on the main level) was designed for having a good time with lots of reggaeton and Latin beats.

People started coming in around 2 and by 3 o’clock the main level was full. The people were friendly and the energy good.

Sahara Continent is located across from the entrance of Recoleta Cemetery, close to Recoleta Village.

    I also went to the Sahara night club, and it’s exactly as said by the editor. I am from Easter Europe and was surprise so see the club has touch of Turkesh/ Egyptian decor. Also keep in mind that the area is surrounded by restaurants and other bars, there is also a cinema. Plenty of things to do if you have time to kill 😉 Safe

    Are the security guards strict on letting people in? Do you think you can get in if your under 20?
