Just left the bar. On ordering my first drink at 19:45 (admittedly in English) I was told it was happy hour, so when I’d finished my drink and decided to move on, on getting to the stairs, I was called back to pay for my...More

Great cellar bar in downtown Buenos Aires. It opens every night at around 7:30 pm up till 3am. It can be quite intimate during the early hours (empty that is), so it's great to go with your date/hook up/wtvr and just cuddle on the dimly-lit...More

FLUX opens earlier than most bars, and also gets a fair amount of travelers mixed with locals. Their happy hour prices are also a lot less than other places, so it becomes a bargain also. There is also always a local artist diplaying paintings. And...More

If this bar explains the BA LGBTQI scene it's not terribly encouraging. The drinks during happy hour were inexpensive but I couldn't talk about atmosphere. Spotted a couple of uni students type but couldn't talk about ambience. Asked the bar tender whether there were wine...More

It's gone down hill, the owners are jaded, and at times can be snappy not the vibrant bar it was when it first opened.

Make sure you make a note of the address if you want to go here as it's hard to find just walking along. The colourful door doesn't really stand out that much. Inside you make your way down the stairs into a dimly, moodily-lid cellar...More

Basement ambience was friendly Very simple sofa and couches but the best experience was for the cocktails which were 5 out of five not to be missed

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest.
