From bar to bar: night tour in the city that never sleeps


From bar to bar: night tour in the city that never sleeps

Nov 13, 2015


We have already a told you about luxury bars in Buenos Aires, those deluxe locations that a trained drinker must always keep under radar. However, in this note we propose something different: a bar to bar tour, from 5 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Because it is true that Buenos Aires never sleeps

Shall we begin the tour?

From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m: Nola

As it opens very early, when most Porteños are drinking tea, this gastropub located in Palermo is ideal to set the tone. The proposal comes from Liza Puglia, a chef native to New Orleans, offering home made beers and Cajun food: Southern-style fried chicken, giblets and gumbo. It has an informal environment: bars, stools and it is visited mostly by tourists and expat.

Where? Gorriti 4389, Palermo. Every day, from 5 p.m. to midnight

From 7 p.m. to 9 p.m: Milion

Second stop of this liquid tour. Milion has been earning the heart of drinkers since 1999. Located in a beautiful and huge early 20th Century petit hotel, with an intact glamour and wonderful staircases and corners, Milion is the ideal bar for a stylish happy hour. In Spring-Summer season, its charming garden is the most visited area of this 10,000 square feet house distributed in four floors. The menu offers from a perfect Martini to Mai tai or Piña colada.

Where? Paraná 1048, Barrio Norte. Mondays to Saturdays from 10 a.m., Sundays from 8 p.m. Happy hour: Mondays to Saturdays, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

From 10 p.m. to midnight: Verne

We return to Palermo to recommend one of the most beautiful bars of the area. Tip: sit at the bar, look for the bar manager, the kind and super expert Fede Cuco, and surrender to his suggestions. Not only will you have a good cocktail, you will also have fun with his histrionics and you will surely learn some more about cocktails in Buenos Aires. The name of the bar obviously is taken from the writer Julio Verne and its aesthetics is influenced by steampunk, with retrofuturist details. If you want to eat, there are only hot-dogs and appetizers, because Verne proudly claims to be just a bar.

Where? Medrano 1475, Palermo. Every day, from 8 p.m. to closing

From midnight to 3 a.m: Soria

Near midnight, this bar turns into something special, particularly in summer days, as it is almost taken by a patio and terrace. Soria has one of the most festive and lively environments in town. A bar of friends. It usually serves potatoes, calamari or buffalo wings to go with drinks. Note: you can get to the bar by bike as it has a parking spot by the door.

Where? Gorriti 5151, Palermo. Tuesdays to Thursdays, from 8 p.m.; Fridays and Saturdays, from 9 p.m.

From 3 a.m. to 5 a.m: Duarte

A great place to close the night (and become a frequent visitor). Good cocktails, good prices and good food with it (lamb burger with smoked cheese is a must). What else can you order? Brothers Agustín and Juan Bertero are the owners of this bar that opened in 2012 to take cocktails to a young audience willing to learn. It offers good happy hours and jar cocktails. A suggestion: the new Veggie Jar, with gin, Shima quinoa and lemon.

Where? ARAOZ 1218, Palermo. Tuesdays to Thursdays, from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m., Fridays, from 7 p.m. to 5 am; Saturdays from 8 p.m. to 5 am; and Sundays, from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m.
