This glorious Buenos Aires bar is housed in an incredibly attractive old mansion with French doors. It has balconies, an elegant staircase and at the back, a cascade of greenery framing a tranquil courtyard. Inside there’s a compact bar area and a superbly stylish restaurant. The building dates back to the dawn of the 20th century and has been thoughtfully restored so that something of that old world atmosphere remains, though in other ways this is a very modern place serving top notch tapas, excellent Argentine steaks and potent cocktails. Milion is at its best in warmer weather when you can relax in the garden under the darkening sky or, if you start to feel chilly, retreat into the separate garden room with its inviting red cushions and wall projections. Reservations are pretty much a must if you want to secure a table in the restaurant.
