worth a visit! go for a drink!

Very nice bar, especially sitting right at the bar! The rest of the room is missing some charme or atmosphere, but the view to the front is great. A lot of good drinks with special recipes, most of them 75-95 Peso. You can also grab something to eat. Delicious starters for example... read more

We went as a large group (7) and after we were seated, given menus, and drink orders were taken we were then informed that there was no running water on the property this evening and that the bathrooms would not be working either. They should have started with that.... The drinks were really awesome and the food (although not a... More

I'm from NYC where we have so many great cocktail bars and this one could definitely beat out a bunch of them! Inventive, flavorful drinks and great mixologists work here. Went on a Friday night around midnight. Wasn't too crowded but a good scene. The bartenders were so nice and speak English. The bloody Mary was amazing as well as... More

Imagine walking deeper and deeper into San Telmo on streets that are practically empty, getting nearly to the point where your nerves caution you to turn back, then arriving at a wide thoroughfare and seeing the canopy on the corner store emblazoned with "Beefeater" and "Doppel Bar" and wondering, "That's it? That's the place with the insane cocktails?" The tourist/expat/foodie... More

We went there after reading all the excellent reviews just to become very disappointed. We arrived there quite early 8.30 pm and there was only one other couple at the bar just getting their cocktails from the bar tender. After 15 minutes wait a girl took our order but nothing else happened. The bar tender is one of the slowest... More

Went here about 12:30 after finishing dinner. A good selection of unusual and well prepared cocktails in a pleasant atmosphere.

Cocktails were delicious, but came out very slow. Almost worth the wait! The bar is a better spot to sit as the 'lounge' area is lacking in atmosphere and felt more like sitting at a cafeteria table in the dark and you can see the magic happen. It's clear the guy who runs this place likes to make a perfect... More

Most of the reviewers who have reviewed this wonderful bar here had no business even being in the Doppel Bar. As the sign above the bar says, "This is not for everyone." The Doppelganger Bar is a true cocktail bar. They make the best cocktails in South America, and that's it. If you truly love a great cocktail, and you... More

Staying in San Telmo

Neighborhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
