A Bar That Never Closes (Or So They Say)Perched on the northern (and safer) edge of Parque Lezama, a leafy green park that separates tourist-friendly San Telmo with the meaner streets of La Boca, Bar Británico is the real deal - a no-frills corner bar with a long history in the neighborhood.
The bar is supposedly open 24 hours a day, meaning it's fit for any time you happen to be in the barrio: cortados and medialunas for breakfast, hearty meat and potatoes at lunch, cake and tea in the afternoon, a glass of the house wine anytime. This isn't gourmet fare, mind you, but real food - with prices, and satisfyingly gruff service - to match.
