Attraction details
Owner description: Flux bar, Buenos Aires' only early gay bar has delicious cocktails, great music and a comfortable space to meet people and be with your friends. It is the only gay bar in Buenos Aires with a happy hour - everyday from 7 'till 10pm - with two for one drinks. We also have a range of more interesting cocktails for those who want to try something more exotic.Buenos Aires' gay scene can be tricky to navigate. In Flux you will always find someone who speaks English and they will be about to point you in the right direction regarding the other gay bars, gay clubs and gay saunas in Buenos Aires. We're just 20 metres from avenue 9 de Julio in Retiro neighbourhood.

Basement ambience was friendly

but the best experience was for the cocktails which were 5 out of five
not to be missed

Nice, a bit hidden place close to Av. 9 de Julio. Went there twice during recent visit in BA. Bar prices are cheap and really liked the photos on the wall. I guess the owner must have an eye for a bit of art. It gets busy after 11 pm and it is a mixed crowds. I met some nice people there and will go there again on next trip to BA.

If you speak English check this bar out as it is owned by a friendly Englishman from Yorkshire. Cheap drinks! I highly recommend it if you're gay and visiting Buenos Aires.

Walked in w bf after 5 days in BA and not having been to any gay identified place. It was billed as only early gay bar with a burns onda. The twink bartender deigned to take our order in the midst of flirting with a couple of 20 somethings. The owner/manager seemed nicer. We got our drinks and remained invisible to the bartender, who was busy munching peanuts behind the bar, never offering any to us, as is the custom in "normal" BA bars. Eventually, though we only lingered for 2 drinks, one of the bartender's objects of desire was behind the bar on what must have been a computer. After a period of chit chat between them, broken only by my jarring request (that's how it was viewed) for another drink, the object's bf or friend came over to see what was up. They chatted away as my friend got a second drink and tried futally to make some conversation. Didn't matter that it fell flat. We had scoped out the place as dull and boring. Unfortunately the dueno doesn't see much beyond the smoothe face of the twink he hired and didn't seem to notice that customer service (yes we were paying guests, among the other 6 or so persons who were there) was abysmal. Too bad. We won't return. Apparently it's not such a hot spot amongst others either in the early evening, as the only gay bar with a "happy hour." Usually more than polite, I walked out without a word as my bf paid. Twinkie bartender didn't notice anyway. Suerte, you'll need it.

Well located place, but a little hard to find at first, because the short front door.
Enviroment is not so nice. Walls and floor seem to be old and maybe had never been refurbished. Decoration really could be better and the attendants more attentive.
Anyway, according another comments, the drinks are very tasteful and not so expensive as other places. If there was a renovation, I think it was a good place to go. But the way it is now, I think it is not inviting.

Enviroment: 2☆/5☆; Service: 3☆/5☆; Drinks 4☆/5☆
