2018 Update: Streets in Venezuela is not safe as before even during the day time. crime rate is so high and foreigners are not safe to hang out outside anymore due to the current Economic Crisis. So, think twice to hang out at nights.
The voices of knowledge tell that in the 70s the nightlife of Caracas was lively, creative, full of fun, even full of tranquility. You could find parties everywhere, in the east of the city, in the west of the city, even in the house of your neighbors. The good vibes surrounded you, always with the motto: The weekends are made to enjoy them and get drunk. Let’s deep into Venezuela Nightlife from a decent local lady from Venezuela.
Caracas, Venezuela was known with a place where the nightlife was very rich and floricultural, however with the pass of years, with the increases in the mortality rate due to insecurity, the young people of the new generation will never be able to enjoy the life or a healthy night of fun and carefree, or that’s what you hear on the street.
The elders in the subway say “I enjoyed my youth, I dawned in the streets…” they talk about the most famous ice cream shop in the Sabana Grande station, or the musical meetings that were organized in the streets; but unfortunately they end up saying “things have changed for the worse”.
The ´´rumbas´´ (parties) in Caracas Nightlife still shake some ends of the city, of course yes, despite all the problems that this country is going through, Venezuelans are known as “the soul of the party” and it’s true. As Venezuelans, of course, we are proud of our men, but the nightlife of Caracas, are lit by beautiful and charismatic women, always at the disposition to take a step to the fun, with desire to play and conquer.
´´Rumbear´´ (go to a party) is not so easy anymore. You have to have enough money and in reality there is a shortage of cash, and although there is money flow in the banks, you need cash to pay for a taxi since the parties that have been held are in Las Mercedes, La Castellana, El Rosal: you can find fine restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
The East of Caracas; it is practically where the fire of the life of our city has been concentrated. There is people from all parts of Caracas from the west of the city, from the east, from Miranda State and from Vargas state, being the states that surround the capital.
The parties are composed young people from 18 to 26 years who are going to relax, will enjoy, and go to flirt with women or simply go alone to enjoy life. But let’s face it, in the clubs at the east of Caracas there are many beautiful and very sensual women go without couples or go in a group of girls, to conquer men.
Good nightclubs usually have up to 4 or 5 environments, the most popular is the genre of reggae ton, a sensual genre and a little urban; but hey, women like to move the curves, they like to be seen, the preferred genera are: merengue, salsa and the Bachata is the genre of conquest for both men and women.
Among the environments are also the genre of electronics that is well received, and rock is unusual, which is why these places are usually empty.
There is not much to comment on the life of the shopping centers since they all close at 10 o’clock at the most.
But moving away from the East, we will talk about how it is ‘’Rumbear’’ in the west of the capital, unlike in the East the meetings that originate in the west of the city are more private, are more family, its things of neighborhood. If you go to a meeting in ´´El Junquito’’, you know that you will stay at the host’s house and that you will not be able to leave until the next morning, or of course, unless you have a car, and if you go in your car, be careful!
1 year ago it was still possible to organize a normal party, however, currently most of the parties are revels in which each guest brings something to share. We can’t give ourselves the pleasure of inviting everything that will be served at the party.
For the eyes of foreigners Venezuela nightlife almost does not exist, others would say that it is not a life of quality enjoyment, and the truth is that they are right. Venezuela nightlife translates to dancing to discos, going out to eat, going to the movies, going to a bar, to the liquor store on the corner, maybe to a theater or organizing a meeting.
Going to a public musical venue is a bit risky, we all know that there may be a lot of people, because it’s free, and because it’s free, many people will go; We know that, places with a lot of people in concentration is a nest for the thieves. We Venezuelans, we are presumptuous people, we like to get ready, we like to show where we are, where we went or where we will go.
Caracas is a very busy city, with a lot of stress, that’s why the holidays, are a way to forget what happens at the national level, to relax from work, to go out with your partner or friends, or just to go out of your routine.
Nonetheless, Venezuela nightlife is worth to experience once especially those man who love to meet with beautiful Latino women. We may not hosting a crazy nightlife options but one can be fully satisfy what we currently have to serve in our nightlife.
