  • One of my favorite places to spend time when I visit Quito. The best time is the night, young people can enjoy the nightlife in discos, karaoke, bars, etc. If you want to share with your friends, there are variety of restaurants or cafes with nice views of the plaza. If you are lucky, you can enjoy live music, too. Fantastic! Just be careful, may be a little dangerous, so it's recommended to be with your friends all the time.
  • Bright and energetic, it's the Times Square of Quito. Like Times Square, however, it's overpriced, and full of panhandlers and pushy restaurant hosts. If you like to eat or drink after 6pm, this is the best, if not the only place to go for evening entertainment...
