The city has a handful of good bars and pubs, plus a few discos, which I recommend only if you like to hang out with teenagers and listen to bad techno music. One of the most popular pubs is Santino, and it is especially suitable for large groups. Or try the more intimate ambience of the La Taberna (tel. 61/248840) cellar bar, below the Hotel José Nogueira at the corner of Bories and Sequel across from the plaza; appetizers are available. Another popular spot is Pub 1900 (tel. 61/242759), at the corner of Avenida Colón and Bories; yet another pub is the El Galeón, Av. 21 de Mayo 1243, below the Hotel Isla Rey Jorge (tel. 61/248220). The Cabo de Hornos Hotel (tel. 61/242134), on the plaza, has its chic bar but more somber atmosphere.

The Cine Estrella, Mejicana 777 (tel. 61/225630), is the only cinema in town. Call or check newspaper listings for what's playing.
