Isabel

One of the hottest cocktail bars in Palermo. Gaby, the doorman, will always let you in as long as you are properly dressed and throw him a big smile. Once a month, Buenos Aires’ coolest photographer Michigan Rabbit throws a party at Isabel with the best local DJs. Follow him on Instagram for dates @MichiganRabbit.

La Florería Atlántico

The speakeasy trend has arrived in Buenos Aires and this is one of the best spots in Recoleta. From the outside it looks like a flower and wine shop; once inside, enter the bar through a refrigerator door. There are cocktails for every whim, so let the bartenders improvise something bespoke based on your likes.

Frank's

Another speakeasy, you have to know a password to get in (clues are given every day on their Facebook page). Once inside, enter this 1920-style sweetheart through a phone booth. Frank’s has killer cocktails and is a great place to spend a weeknight – have the password ready because the doormen are very strict.

Faena Pool Bar

Buenos Aires’ hottest hotel was designed by Philippe Starck and the pool bar is an absolute must – don’t be intimidated by the giant crown, everyone is welcome. A good spot for after-dinner drinks, the bar has good music and a sophisticated international crowd.

Cafe San Bernando

If you want to have a real porteño experience, head to this pool on a Tuesday for ping pong and other games. Perfect for large, loud groups if you are willing to share beers and interact with locals.

Bar Rodney

An iconic bar located in the up-and-coming neighbourhood of Chacarita. Rock bands play in this bar a la calle, or street bar, which is a unique spot in Buenos aires thanks to its eclectic crowd.

Tequila

Small and private, this is the trendiest club in Buenos Aires. Thursdays and Saturdays are the best days to enjoy good DJs. To get in, make sure to arrive before 2am or book a table, otherwise you might have to wait and queue for a very long time.

La Vermuteria Café San Juan

Rehydrate at La Vermuteria after a hectic day in the markets of San Telmo. The classy bar is joined to San Juan Canteen and serves a stellar selection of Vermouth. Ask for the snacks menu and order some very tasty tapas.

Florería Atlántico

Follow the decadent scent of flowers, pass by an overspill of bloomage and enter the subterranean Florería Atlántico. The restaurant, located in Recoleta, serves sharing plates but inventive cocktails are the real appeal, with a well-stocked, worldly selection of spirits on tap.

La Bomba de Tiempo at Konex

For ear-tingling drumming on a Monday night, check out La Bomba de Tiempo (Time Bomb) at Ciudad Cultural Konex. A small orchestra of 16 percussionists improvise their set, rallying onlookers take to the floor for some impromptu dancing. A great place to meet friends before dinner.
