What if you could get to Switzerland just by crossing the street? Well not exactly crossing a street (depends where you live and how long it takes you to get to downtown) and not exactly Switzerland...
Named after the "Switzerland of South America", Uruguay in translation actually means the "river of the colorful birds", a word in Guarani that was spoken by the natives of the area.
Yes you got me right. I am talking about Uruguay Street in downtown, that's been gaining major popularity these past months.
The most promoted, popular and treasured drink in Uruguay (South America) is mate, a tea-like drink made of dried yerba mate leaves. Legend has it that mate was presented as a gift from the gods to humanity after a man stopped two goddesses from being eaten by a jaguar.
Uruguay in downtown has things "plus simple" with no legends to back it up (but who said the drinks to offer aren't as tasty or even tastier than mate?!).
Zucca for example offers you rich, vibrant and unique flavors using fresh juices, fruits, herbs and purees.
Collins is 'a la trende' with its big apple martini. And Gatsby with its variety of bourbon mixed whiskey cocktails all carefully crafted with the freshest hand squeezed herbs and fruits.
The Bhar is an original outlet created for brunch and lunch and the Bronx has delicious burgers and fajitas.
Overall Uruguay is filled with so many different pubs all their attracting their own crowds, customers and audiences. Taking your drive here, you can be sure you'll find the perfect spot to suit you. The perfect crowd, food, drinks and music to suit your mood for the night.
One of the major spotlights of Uruguay is the fact that it's a fully pedestrian area with no access to cars, except for valet parking of course. So while enjoying your drinks, owners of pubs actually encourage customers to grab their drinks and stand on the street, while moving their bodies to beats that the night has in surprise for them.
Growing up to the name the "elite of nightlife" Uruguay became the place to be. So if you're still in deep thought of where to go tonight, don't think twice...Uruguay is waiting.
As Homer Simpson thinks Uruguay is pronounced as "You are gay", so keep your alcohol together and watch your pronunciation after your alcohol peeps...keep safe, drive safe....CHEERS
