I've visited the bar in Palermo on a number of occasions but this visit will be my last. The staff were too busy trying to act cool to serve me. I asked for 3 stellas and had to ask 3 times as they couldnt understand me (stella in stella no matter how you pronounce it). My wife asked the doorman... More

This bar has an Irish name but it knows nothing about Irish hospitality. The service was horrendous. When I arrived I noticed the barman many minutes before he noticed me. He came towards me reluctantly and gave me the smile free nod which I believe is the 'pre customer service days' for 'what do you want'? He never smiled. I... More

This bar was a happening spot in the Reteiro neighbourhood we had to wait almost 20 minutes for a table but it was fun just watching all the people coming and going. When we finally got a table, service was a bit slow. When the waitress finally arrived we ordered food with our drinks not wanting to chance another long... More

Great bar and great drinks. Awesome people and employees. Very crowded, so if you want a table it is better to get there early...

The only thing Irish about this bar is the name. There is nothing Irish about it. What Irish bar do you know advertises Scottish Famous Grouse? No offended to Famous Grouse fans - but it's supposed to be an Irish bar. No irish staff, no English or irish speakers. The bar though is nice, very popular with locals, nice and... More

Although BsAs is known for wine it is quickly coming under the spell of craft beer. A young crowd with good music playing and a GREAT beer selection. I had a delish IPA and some small eats and was very happy!

In fact, one of the most cool places a I visited in Buenos Aires. It's a pub, full of young people and with a spectacular backyard. Although, it was very crowded and noisy. Don't expect to a calm and intimate place.

Staying in Retiro

Neighbourhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
