3. La Oficina Disco Bar
This bar is open from 5 am until 2 am. That doesn’t mean that you sleep for the three hours that its closed and come straight back, however we’re sure some people do. The name ‘La oficina’ translates to a funny way of saying, the nightclub is very busy. It’s easy to get comfortable but do not make yourself too comfortable because dancing is what this disco bar was made for.
