But I don’t speak Portuguese (yet) and gringos need a visa to visit Brazil. Dinner, two entrees, one appetizer and a bottle of wine – , minimum. Now if everything else were awesome, that would be acceptable, but the roll call of mediocrity is only beginning. It appears the whole Uruguayan populace has pretty low standards for food.2: Whenever I’m in Miami or other fancy club places, the Argentinas I meet are always super hot. That would be in Vietnam if you’re keeping score. Menus are short, and are basically lists of overpriced unseasoned meat or basic cheese pizzas without any flavor.It’s blocked up with horse piss or something equally foul smelling so it’s not pleasant aromatic herb, but it does the job and the cops won’t give you a hard time for it, so that’s one bonus to Uruguay.Other than that I say learn from my mistake and never bother with this place, unless you’re getting paid well to go there.
I just spent 5 days in the capital of Uruguay, and I want to report back to Single Dude nation that Montevideo is a shockingly mediocre location for the single dude or frankly any traveler.In Uruguay the party starts even later, but then it’s just a loud club with a bunch of mediocre chicks, nobody really partying much except for Brazilian tourists (the one saving grace of Montevideo nightlife) playing shitty Latin pop.If you want to take a girl home you need to survive until at least 6 am, and who has the energy at 6 am after a night in a loud club to do a good job with some mediocre dull chick?Hotspots: In Pocitos at the intersection of 26 de Marzo and Herrera there’s some decent bars.Burlesque, Pony Pisador, Lotus and some other club.Every night I’d have a mediocre chick into me at 2 am but I just didn’t have the energy to sit there for the next 4 hours waiting for her. But the weather is nice in Uruguay, so it’s a good place to sit out at cafes on the beach and relax, right? There is some law or something prohibiting bars or cafes on the ocean, so the entire ocean walk, called “La Rambla” is basically abandoned.
