A great bar that has good music and TV screens. Drinks reasonably priced and the bar has a good buzz about it. Try the tapas, they are better than acceptable for a bar.

The lighting is subdued, the atmosphere is very laid back. There was a selection of languages around the room. An eclectic, classy vibe. Perfect to meet with friends. I have had the food a few times and frankly, there are better places to eat, but for a meeting place for drinks and then see what happens, you can't beat it.... More

You don't see what you're drinking or eating and in any case, the food looks just like any other standard junk food. The music is OK but inside the restaurant is too noisy. Probably is better to sit outside in spring or summer, that's lovely but still, the only safe drink I recommend is beer. Good for after office, some... More

We only came here for a few drinks one night but it's definitely on the list for a visit for food. What we saw on the menu and dishes coming out to other diners certainly makes it onto our list of must do's. We had a couple of Margerita's during the 2 for 1 session and they were really good....

Went here as it was next to the hotel and it was open til very late. Pleasantly surprised by very tasty sushi and great cocktails. Lots of people watching and enjoyed the buzz of the street-life. A popular choice for both locals and visitors.

The prices went up just like everything in Argentina. It probably has one of the most complete menu of the area regardin drinks. Don't be to demanding, go for the classics. Prices are touristic, but nothing out of this world.

Love this place. The bar is very cool and we have always had great service and drinks. Try the 'sea grill' or 'parrillada de mar': a beautiful dish with seafood seasoned with a lime vinagrette. Every time we have someone visiting us in Buenos Aires we come to this place.

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
