World's First Coke Bar

Recommended Posts

Route-36-cocaine-lounge-001.jpg

 

Tonight we have two types of cocaine; normal for 100 Bolivianos a gram, and strong cocaine for 150 [bolivianos] a gram." The waiter has just finished taking our drink order of two rum-and-Cokes here in La Paz, Bolivia, and as everybody in this bar knows, he is now offering the main course. The bottled water is on the house.

 

La Paz, Bolivia, at 3,900m above sea level – an altitude where even two flights of stairs makes your heart race like a hummingbird – is home to the most celebrated bar in all of South America: Route 36, the world's first cocaine lounge. I sit back to take in the scene – table after table of chatty young backpackers, many of whom are taking a gap year, awaiting a new job or simply escaping the northern hemisphere for the delights of South America, which, for many it seems, include cocaine.

 

great or stupid idea?

 

considering 100 Bolivian bolivianos = 14.24500 U.S. dollars (thanks google), that sounds like a pretty good deal, then again, i bet it's the sketchiest bar on the planet

This. Though I bet in like 30 minutes of sitting in there not doing coke you'd hear hundreds of the the most hilarious/ridiculous/obnoxious lines and stories that you've ever heard

Yeah, i forgot to specify that after those 30 minutes you'd probably want to kill everyone in the establishment and then yourself.

Shit, I took the title to mean that Coca-Cola had bought out some kind of snack bar like a Coke flavoured Snickers, or something.

there used to be a bar in brooklyn called "cokey's" and it was owned by an ex-cop. Lines on the bar all night, not just a clever name. Now it's just a dive bar with baskets of cheese balls in place of the yayo. They got big buck hunter safari!
