“Definitely go, but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

Don't expect to get too many drinks when you get there. The queues for drinks are riddiculously long, so best to drink before and be prepared to wait until your next glass. We got there about 9pm and the show went on until about 11.30pm (monday night). The drumming and venue are quality, make sure you go. I only hope they sort out the bar, as it would have been much more fun with a few more drinks in hand.

“The place to see La Bomba de Tiempo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

La Bomba de Tiempo is an improvised percussion group who place on Monday nights. It was a really great performance and the whole crowd was really into it. It's a place I highly recommend to anyone visiting BA. It's located slightly out of the way from any other tourist attractions in BA though so you pretty much have to get a taxi when leaving.

“Really Different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Really fun and something completely different in Buenos Aires. I have gone to a bunch of different events here and this absolutely ranked as one of my favorites. I went with my husband and we left in a taxi, unfortunately the neighborhood that Konex is located in is not very safe at night (worse than other neighborhoods here). Other than that, I loved it. There are tons of people and great drinks at a decent prices as well.

“Bomba del Tiempo- Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

The venue is very hip, as it is an open-air venue with ceiling coverage. The drumming was just OK. If you have seen other drumming, you may not be too impressed with this drumming, as it gets relatively monotonous. If it's your first time at a drumming concert you will likely have a completely great experience. It attracts a young crowd, with lots of cigarette and marijuana smoke. The drinks are affordable (you wait in line to pay for the drinks at the register, then give the bar tender a ticket that says your order, they have beer, wine, jager, etc.). I am 27 and I went with my dad. We both felt a little mature to be there- more of a backpacker and younger crowd. Had a great time for around 3-4 songs, but left after that, as the music did not have a lot of variety and the smoke was annoying to us. Definitely a cool venue to check out in BA, and the show is cool for under an hour, so worth checking out, but not really an all-night activity.

“Amazing stuff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

It's an amazing place to go, drink, with friends, meet new people and listen to good music on monday nights at La Bomba de Tiempo. Almost like an open air club!
