To Drink

La Cachamba

Set in a train graveyard with parts of the bar actually inside the scattered carriages, this is the hangout of choice for Asunción’s cool cats. Fairy lights, wagon wheel tables and swinging garden chairs give it an urban festival vibe, with imaginative cocktails (vodka, watermelon and basil) served in jam jars and chipped enamel cups. The food’s also good; I recommend pizza or lomita (steak sandwich). Gets particularly lively at weekends when local house DJs spin the decks on the open-air dancefloor.

Britannia Pub

Britannia is a reliably good night. Noisy, packed and you’ll probably wait ten minutes to get served. But that, alongside the extensive selection of draught beer (unusual in Paraguay), is what makes it great. Hearty food, including generous picada (sharing platters) and burgers the size of your face, make it the ideal place to roll into after a long day of sightseeing. Free raffle tickets are given alongside drinks, and with the prize generally being an extremely generous bar tab, it’s likely you’ll be rolling back out in the early hours.


Asunción’s premier nightclub – it’s huge, with plenty of glitz ‘n’ glam and sparklers shooting out of drinks. Probably not somewhere you’d go at home, but it’s a lot of fun. Pay (little) to be amongst Paraguay’s elite in the VIP section, or ‘slum’ it with the normal kids on the dance floor. You’ll be dancing into the early hours and have a hilarious night.
