Tequila (Calle 11, La Barra, Punta del Este) – given that the local beach bikini model set descends upon this venue during the region’s Summer months, this has been billed one of the hottest spots in Punta del Este. The crowd is VIP on most nights (of various age groups), given the strict door policy that keeps the blazer-wearing tourists and dressed-up teenagers away. The presence of celebrities passing through Punta del Este like Naomi Campbell only reinforces Tequila’s VIP club status. The music is a mix of Miami-style House & Trance music, as well as Latin tracks and global beats. During peak season (from Christmas to New Year’s), visitors should try to arrive early or at least with some eye-candy to secure prompt entry.
