One of my last few nights in Buenos Aires I went to two 2 new (to me) bars in the Retiro area with a couple of friends. One of the things I love about this city is that there are many hidden gems. You can certainly walk the streets and be sure to find a plethora of great restaurants and bars. However, these two fabulous bars will definitely impress your guests in Buenos Aires.
Bar #1: BASA Basemanet Bar
Basavilbaso 1328 Retiro, http://basabar.com.ar/
beautiful and hip decor, delicious drinks and appetizers with reasonable prices, and loud but energetic music to get the night started
Bar #2 Floreria Atlántico
Arryo 872 Retiro, http://www.floreriaatlantico.com.ar/
enter through a flower shop and down to the basement to find a packed and lively bar with a huge selection of drinks and a great chic vibe
*Bonus Bar: Sky Bar
Maipú 907 Retiro, http://www.hotelpulitzer.com.ar/visit-up/
Another great bar I have been to in the Retiro area – fabulous rooftop bar, live music and great view!!
