Some are old, some are new, some are classy, some others are more open, dance clubs or discos are just a matter of personal preference, because fun is granted at any of these places.
Xcess Bar: Located at Larcomar Shopping Center, this is a three-level place with a great dance floor: the crowd is mainly young people, who come here because they always have lively electronic music.
