Description: Moby Dick is a magical and unique spot in Punta del Este. It has a soul like no other. Upon entering you will feel a mystical air that envelopes you with, outdoor terrasses overlooking the port, and friendly and vibrant people dancing the night away to the most acclaimed beats at the entrance.As you slip through the jubilant crowd and head towards either of the floors and rooms of pub´s decor, you will be immediately pleased by the friendly service, food & drink varieties of this enticing open cottage Moby Dick was created as a meeting point for those who are willing to have a good time, in a warm and relaxed atmosphere.It is the music that will define the first part of the relaxing day from 10am onward, reshaping itself to accomodate a warm ideal mood to share dinner or cocktails with friends with live music, then transforming the atmosphere to make way for our resident DJ who will have you dancing until sunrise.We are open every day

Very cool/popular pub on the strip in Punta del Este. We only ordered appetizers and drinks because it was still early, which were good. Staff was great and prices were fair, considering everything in this city is expensive (I'm talking Hamptons expensive!).

What a bar!!!! Go early (10pm) and you may have a nice meal while listening to very nice music. Then go take a nap and get ready to stay until the sun comes up. Come back around 2:30am and get ready to dance among the most beatiful people and dessed up people you ever saw. Live music and a great... More

I came here 7 years ago when Tuto was the bartender and fell in love. Great local crowd, totally welcoming to us Norte Americanos, with cheap drinks and a great scene. This year, Tuto is sadly gone but the staff there now is fantastic! Fun atmosphere, full bar, outdoor seating both street level and upstairs, with a good mix of... More

The atmosphere it´s not nice during summer season. But, if you go to PDE during other holidays weekends and have fun at night. Its a kind of little disco.

This is a pretty trendy bar. Sitting depends on the ladies at front: kind of nice looking bouncers. Prices are on the high side and drinks not particularly good. I guess you do not come here for either drinks or food but for dancing and meeting people. The sangria we ordered was pretty mediocre. I suggest you focus on beers... More

Probably the most famous pub of Punta. Always open until late night. Even off season, you will find some people, both locals and tourists. Good food, drinks and service.

Moby Dick is the typical neighborhood pub in all it's glory. There is indoor and outdoor seating, TVs, live music some nights and plenty of cold beer. Given that I was in PDE during low season and most of the bars weren't open, I spent a lot of time here. The big downside is that PDE is expensive and tap... More

This is a place where you will always find people. If you find yourself in Punta off season this is the place to check out. Good food.

Perfectly located in heart of Punta del Este in front of the marina. Nice outdoor seating if you want to sit with friends at nice tables with view of the marina. Food also served and is ok. But come here for the drinks and live music on weekends. It's one of the most popular places in Punta. Get there early... More
