The Conrad Resort & Casino, Parada 4, Playa Mansa (tel. 042/491-111), is the focal point for evening entertainment in Punta, featuring Las Vegas-style reviews and other music, dance, and magic shows -- sometimes around the torch-lit swimming pools. The enormous 24-hour casino has tables playing baccarat, roulette, blackjack, poker, dice, and a fortune wheel.
Bars and clubs come and go with frequency in Punta, often changing names. The best bar is Moby Dick, at Rambla de la Circunvalación (tel. 042/441-240), near the yacht harbor. Company Bar, Calle 29 and Calle 18 (tel. 042/440-130), is another popular downtown drinking spot and has live music at weekends. Punta's bronzed Latin bodies then make their way to Gitane and La Plage (tel. 042/484-869), two nearby clubs on Rambla Brava, Parada 12. La Barra, 10km (6 miles) to the north, has become the main strip for bars and clubs that perennially change name and location.
