- Great food
May 11, 2018
Opened by some of the same team behind the popular 878 this speakeasy style bar is hidden away under a flower shop right in the middle of Buenos Aires. The bar is housed in an atmospheric basement space – a rarity in the city – and features shelving stacked with bottles, a peeling ceiling, chandeliers and art on the walls. The menu nods back to the classic bars of the early 20th century. There are five sections all featuring classic cocktails with modern twists, each drawing on the drinks of Italy, Spain, England, France and Poland. There’s also a sixth section of the menu devoted to drinks emblematic of modern Argentina. A similar approach is evident in the food menu which sees meats cooked on a salvaged 1942 ‘parrilla’ grill. The design and décor are tasteful and reflective of the city’s history, mixing the modern and the vintage. It’s a handsome spot with a lively, stylish vibe and had become something of a hit with very good reason.
