The Best Bars in Buenos Aires

If you are looking for an authentic local Argentine experience, consider visiting some of the most exclusive and authentic bars in Buenos Aires. Buenos Aires is the sophisticated capital of Argentina and a gateway for its spectacular natural wonders. Known for its excellent beef and Malbec, its European façade, and its Latin heartbeat, this unique city hides some of its most charming locations in plain sight. Fashionable Porteños disappear into mysterious alleys behind small shops or unmarked doorways, leaving tourists wondering if there’s something eluding them. Below are some of the best bars in Buenos Aires with delicious food, tasty drinks, and a distinctly in-the-know atmosphere in Buenos Aires.

1. Casa Felix

First on our list for the best bars in Buenos Aires is Casa Felix. Casa Felix is a staple in the closed-door circuit. Dinner at Casa Felix is literally dining at Chef Diego Felix’s house. The intimate setting, organic and locally grown foods, and five-course tasting menu are a treat for locals and travelers alike. The vegetarian and pescatarian menu is also a fantastic option for diners looking for a little variety from the steak-heavy restaurants in Buenos Aires.

Reservations for the 12 seats in the Chef’s home go fast, so plan well in advance if you’d like to make this a part of your trip to Argentina. Reservation via [email protected]

2. Paladar

Next on our list is Paladar. The contemporary Argentine cuisine is served at Chef Pablo Abramovsky’s home. This experience is almost like getting a fast-pass into Porteño society. Enjoy exceptional food paired with Argentine wines poured by the Chef’s sommelier wife.  The ever-changing menu creates a feeling of charm and “Buena Onda” that’s hard to replicate in a standard restaurant.


3. I Latina

Third on our list is I Latina. The Macias siblings provide an intriguing tasting menu of culinary delights found in Latin America here. Enjoy each dish served in the beautiful, chic interior. Recently, the restaurant moved to a beautiful house in Palermo, one of Buenos Aire’s most famous neighborhoods. The food is a sophisticated blend of familiar flavors. The crowd is a mix of locals, ex-pats, and visitors. Overall, expect to be captivated here.


4. Floreria Atlantico

Is Floreria Atlantico a late-night flower shop or something more? One of the best bars in Buenos Aires is found behind the secret door of a flower shop. In the heart of Recoleta, this bar won Best Bar in Latin America. Additionally, the bar gained accolade from the Caribbean during the World’s 50 Best Bars Election. Come here for some delicious drinks, tasty food, and great people-watching.Closed-Door-Restaurants-&-Bars-in-Buenos-AiresClosed-Door-Restaurants-&-Bars-in-Buenos-Aires

5. The Harrison

Last on our list is The Harrison. While at The Harrison, watch as unsuspecting diners eat sushi in the front while beautifully dressed Porteños disappear into the wine cellar. This bar is exclusive, trendy, and home to some of the most delicious drinks in South America. You’ll need to go with a card-carrying member to get in, or eat there and ask to see the wine cellar after the meal.
