We wondered in on a Sunday. A perfect rest from the market. Best coffee we have had in Buenos Aires and lovely locals super friendly. Good service. Ask for the mani (peanuts).

Perched strategically on the Plaza Dorrego sits this gorgeous slightly shabby bar, where the waiters wear long aprons and are smarter than the clientele. The wine is good and inexpensive and each time we visited, it was accompanied by complimentary roasted nuts. The bar is...More

San Telmo

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
