Bars and Clubs

Many of the new bars (and there seem to be more and more each time we visit Quito) can be found at Plaza El Quinde - Plaza Foch or nearby in Juan Leon Mera. The area has been improved in recent years and is quite pricey by Quito standards.
Bars can be anything from a quiet watering hole where you can grab a bite at lunch to pulsating, loud sweaty dance floors open until the small hours in the heart of the Mariscal.
