A classic bar in the middle of the Palermo hot zone, this bar was recently refurbish but still maintain its lovely back garden and nice vibes.

Amazing garden/patio outside for summer with a bar which remained close while over 100 people waited for drinks. Bar Manager's only response was 'shut up' when asked if he could open it !! Take him out of the equation, great bar !

Good food.. Mixed drinks and excellent patio. Bartenders really know their stuff and it can really kick off on weekends. Right in the heart of all the action in Palermo, near the clubs if you feel like heading out dancing after. Good mixed menu. Patio is open all seasons as they keep small bonfires lit in winter.

I was there twice while visiting BA. The bar is quite cool and as well the patio is very nice. It's also possible to eat there although I haven't tried that out.

We went to have dinner and some cocktails yeasterday evening, the place is ideal if you want to hang out with some friends. Unfortunately, the menu has sandwiches and pizzas, and four or five main courses so it is too limited. We took chicken salad and nacho's it was okmconsidering the price we paid.

One of my personal favorites in Buenos Aires - the party crowd and the superb courtyard garden make this place a special venue on hot sommer nights when you prefer to catch a cool breeze rather than sit in a room with AC on full blast. The wine list is quite good, the service ok.

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
